Galdhøpiggen is Norway
's highest mountain
stretching 2,469 meters above sea level
Due to its easily accessible location
in the national park Jotunheimen
it is also the most frequently visited,
both by locals and tourists.
There used to be some controversy regarding
which peak was the highest; Glittertind
or Galdhøpiggen. Glittertind used to
be covered by a large perpetual glacier,
which made it 3 meters higher
- but should that count?
However, in the last few years some
of the ice has melted, and Glittertind is
now beat by 5 meters.
