The Kjerag Mountain, also called Kiragg, is a popular climbing destination, as well as a great place for base jumping - extreme parachuting from tall objects such as towers, mountain cliffs, bridges, etc.

The peak is known mostly, however, from a big stone keyed between two rocks with the volume of 5 m³ called Kjeragbolten.

The cimb on it doesn't requires climbing equipment, but should be treated as mountain climbing.

The tour up takes about 3-4 hours one way, sometimes on a very steep route with chains. This is definitely a highlight for the brave, because just below the boulder there is a 984 meter high cliff.

Decent shoes and warmer clothing is mandatory in case of sudden weather changes.
