Kvennhusfossen

Downstream the Rjukanfossen there is an unknown waterfall of about 25 meters, the Kvennhusfossen.

The Kvennhusfossen can be found near road 37, eight kilometers west of the town Rjukan (Tinn) . From road 37 there is a sideway, just after the tunnel, where you should have a good view on the waterfall.

There aren’t so many powerful waterfalls with a significant free fall in Telemark. The Rjukanfossen is a really beautiful waterfall in the river Måne and with a free fall of around 100 meters it is also the highest waterfall in Telemark. Only reservation I make is that there is a power plant which can reduce the waterflow.
