Månafossen is the highest waterfall in Rogaland and most spectacular.
The walk up from the car park is short but quite a steep scramble and
can be muddy in places. Don't be put off in bad weather, the waterfall
can be awesome after heavy rainfall. Active children love it!

need to "climb" about 20 minutes from the car park to see the
waterfall. The path goes over lots of rock and boulders and there are several
places with staircases and chains to hold on to.
For those not able to do the climb, it is enjoyable to sit and wait beside the river where picnic tables are provided.
The walk to Månafossen is easily extended into the picturesque valley above - a walk as long as you want it to be, in a classic example of what was once a playground of the glaciers, complete with a moraine dam wall.
It is good to come here as part of the Lysefjord boat and Sirdal round-trip - especially if you have kids trapped in the back of a car too long!
You may also want to combine a visit here with something to eat and candle-dipping at Byrkjedal Kro, or see the massive boulders that make the moraine at Gloppedal
