 Kjelfossen waterfall

Kjelfossen waterfall is one of the highest waterfalls in Norway. The waterfall are located near the village of Gudvangen. With a total fall height of 755 metres, the waterfall is listed as the 18 th tallest waterfall in the world. The tallest single drop is 149 metres. The height of the waterfall has never been accurately measured, so there are discrepancies in its actual height. Some sources list it as 840 metres tall.

The largest of the three (the one on the left) is officially named Kjelfossen, but is also known as Stor Kjelfossen. The middle falls is known as Vetle Kjelfoss, and the one on the right (and the smallest by volume) is thought to be unnamed. The falls are located just east of Gudvangen at the end of the Nærøyfjord. The falls can be seen from the E16 highway, just west of the entrance into the Gudvanga Tunnel. The falls are located about 18 kilometres west of Flåm and 27 kilometres west of Aurlandsvangen.
