Monge Falls

Mongefossen

Mongefossen (Monge falls) is unofficially listed as the fourth-highest waterfall in the world. There is some dispute as to the height, but it is generally listed at 773 m (2,535 feet). It also holds the distinction as being the highest waterfalls in the world which may be viewed from a railway station. In this case, they are located on the famous Rauma Railway, on the north side of the tracks between Flatmark and Marstein. Unfortunately, as is the case with many of Norway's tallest waterfalls, they have been targeted for hydroelectric power, which results in a greatly diminished water flow during the summer tourist season.
