 Dorgefossen waterfall

Dorgefossen is a waterfall located in the Sira river between Omlid and Tjørhom. The river is regulated and there is no requirement for minimum watering. Therefore, the waterfall is more like a jug to consider when the water is taken in by the dam at Handeland. But Sira-Kvina Kraftselskap drops through 2.5 million cubic meters for landscape and outdoor interests. It is possible to bathe in jellyfish in the river, but without warning water can be drained from the dam, and after such a drop, the water will be colder than normal.

At Dorgefossen, the municipality of Sirdal has built a rest area with toilet, information boards and seating both under the roof and in the open air.

Dorga bridge on county road 468 leads over the falls.

Here you will also find the "Håvardsteinen" of about 3000 kg, which was only manpower moved by Håvard Valevatne when the "old road" above Dorgefoss was to be built.
