Today's tour begins with a spectacular view of the Sylarna massif, in whose cauldron even a small glacier hides. Behind the Fjällstation you can choose between two options for the first few kilometers: steep, but shorter, the path leads up the left side of the hill. If you follow the course of the river Sylälven for about two kilometers, the path turns to the east and meets again the normal variant. From here, the trail runs comfortably parallel to the slope in the valley and crosses some arms of the Handölan - sometimes with and sometimes without a bridge. Trekking sandals or poles help with crossings, especially at times of snowmelt. Behind the Mieskentjakke rest stop, you will soon pass the border between the historical provinces of Jämtland and Härjedalen. This is not overlooked thanks to the rusty blue metal sign on the roadside. Now the rest of the way to the mountain station Helags is a walk. Once there, good food, nice company and a warm sauna complete the day.
