Myafossen

(Myfallet-Myfallene)

Myafossen is a very nice and impressive waterfall near Venabu in the municipality Ringebu/Oppland. The river Mya drops down over 100 meters in three tiers. The lowest tier at the base of the fall is the biggest. Myafossen is also called Myfallet, the name that is mentioned on several online maps. Myafossen is the name that comes back on signs and postcards.

Myafossen can be found east of Venabu. When driving on road E6 near Ringebu you have to take road 27 (Rondevegen) towards Venabu.
