Follow road 51 North from Beitostølen in the direction of Bygdin. After approx. 10 km, you will see a parking lot on the left side of the road, opposite the Lappish Camp (parking fee NOK 60,- in 2018, in coins). From there, follow the T-marked path for about 1 km. After passing through a reindeer fence, the route up to the summit of Bitihorn turns left and uphill. (The T-marked path continues straight ahead to Yksendalsbu). The route to Bitihorn is clearly marked and not very challenging. However, it does get a little steeper near the top. Enjoy the panoramic view towards Bygdin, Jotunheimen, and most of the northern region of Valdres.
Cairnes and red markings on stones.
