The mountain access road (marked with red on the picture) is open both summer and winter around Easter. A good starting point for a trip to Merrabotn and further to Dalsida. Vangsfjellene, Merratind and Storhøe is also fine tours.
The mountain access road starts from E136 a little north of Thøring Hyttefabrikk and up the mountain about 2 miles. On the top is a big parking lot with a capacity over 150 cars. Customs is 100 NOK in the winter season and 50 NOK when the winter season is over, which is good prices compared with one single tour for the family up the lift at Bjorli.
