The trail begins in the Gjendesheim village (I came there by bus from Oslo) and ends in Spiterstulen campsite, from there you can catch a bus to Lom village and continue elsewhere from there.
First part of the trail follows the popular Bessegen trail, so expect to see many other tourists there. For the first night camp I chose a spot on the shore of Russvatnet lake.
In the beginning of the second day you will have to cross a very cold river with a strong current. The trail will lead you to a non-existent bridge, so you have two options - find a suitable foot crossing a bit upstream (what I did) or go about one kilometer downstream for a new bridge.
After Glitterheim cabin you have a choice of either going through the valleys (on a path marked as Glitterheim-Spiterstulen), or go through the highest peak of Norway (but beware it is covered in snow even in July, so you will need snow boots).
