area with osier is not large. We make a detour to avoid it. After a kilometer
are we at the brook
We follow it upstream towards south. The feeder stream Rissajåkkå
is today a rill. It has the origin from Lulep Rissajaure, a small lake
a few kilometers away. On Tjågnårisskaite do Sarvesjåkkå
divide, one arm from Sarvesvagge, the other from south (Tjågnårisjåkkå).
Here we have our lunch. The same do a gang of grazing reindeers. The weather,
up to now rather sunny, change. Clouds fall down, Sarvesvagge in the east
disappear in haze. An ice cold wind blow from the north. We give up our
idea of walking Jeknavagge (the small valley at Ryggåsberget and
parallell to upper Njåtjosvagge). It must be poor visibility up there
is not much water in Tjågnårisjåkkå either, one
easily walk on stones to the other side. Our path leads us now to Njåtjosvagge.
We walk up the slope to the two small lakes, Tjågnåris- and
Skiejakjauratj, north of the watershed. From the crest down to Njåtjosvagge
is a magnificient view of the valley, with its three lakes. Njåtjosvagge
is one of the most grand vallyes in Sarek. The height difference from the
lake to the surrounding mountains is about one thousand meters. While we
stand there do the sun for a short moment shine on us through a crack in
the clouds. Long enough to allow a picture of the scenery. The north side
of the valley is extremely easy to walk, except for a few places with many
and large stones. The rain has made it slippery and slushy. It is five
degrees, the cold wind continue to push us from behind. If one choose the
south side, then one is on the wrong side to reach Kvikkjokk via Pårte.
Njåtjosjåkkå further south is normally not easy to cross.
After the outlet from the last lake, where the valley widen, is a rather
large waterfall. The view of southern Njåtjosvagge
is not so bad. Below us and beside the waterfall, is a
grassy space, perfect for the night. We slide down on the snow that covers the
slope, down to our booked place.
