This is one of the favourite peaks to the locals in the area. The top offers a fantastic view of the lake of Strynevatnet.
Park at the Strynsvatn Camping at Meland on the right hand side of the road. Go through the camping area and continue up the forest road. When you get to the first crossroads, turn left and follow the road as far as it goes. There is a path leading up to the mountain farm. Easy going up through dense forest into the beautiful valley of Rjupedalen. Turn left a little futher up, and continue up the wide ridge to Melandsfjellet. The ridge takes you eventually up to the summit. The summit is a vast plateau with commanding view of Skåla, Lodalskåpa and the valley leading up to the Summer Ski Center.
It is an relatively demanding trip. The trip is 5.8 km long and the mountain is 1742 m.a.s.
