Thomas, Pål and I stayed at Bessheim, and woke up to sunny weather. We had heavy snow across Valdresflya the night before and could see that there was snow on the surrounding mountain tops the morning after.

After breakfast, we started the climb along Bessa and short after, we arrived at Bessvatnet. Besshøe was in sight! We met snow long before the Besshøbrean glacier. We also had heavy fog and snowy weather, but when we reached the summit, we were above the clouds. Some places around the summit, the snow reached my thigh. Luckily, many people took the hike this Saturday, so it was easy to walk the path up and down from the summit.

When we returned to Bessvatnet, we fired up Thomas' Primus stove and had some lunch. Then we followed the shores to Besseggen and took the hike across Veslfjellet to Bessa. Then it was all downhill to Bessheim where a wonderful dinner was waiting.
