Waterfalls

About Mongefossen

Mongefossen is a waterfall in the Rauma Municipality of Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is the fourth tallest single-drop waterfall in the world. It's located near the European route E136 highway and the Rauma River, which it flows into. There is some dispute as to the height, but it is generally listed at 773 metres.  As is the case with many of Norway's waterfalls, it has been targeted for hydroelectric power, which results in greatly diminished water flow during the summer tourist season.
