Besseggen for Beginners – Dra på fjelltur i helgen!

Besseggen har jeg gått en 4-5 ganger, både privat og som guide, og det er en tur som de fleste klarer å ta seg gjennom, uten å ofre blod og tårer. Turen er ofte overvurdert med tanke på bratthet, men igjen undervurdert med tanke på lengde. Her følger noen tips om du har planer om å gå Besseggen for første gang, spesielt om du ikke har gått så mye i fjellet før. Turen kan du ta på to dager eller en helg, alt ettersom hva du har tid til.

Buss og overnatting

Det går buss fra Oslo Bussterminalen til Gjendesheim.

Et reiseforslag:

Buss opp til Gjendesheim fra Oslo kl 16.00
Ankomst kl 21.05

Tar du bussen opp fredag ettermidag kan du sove på Gjendesheim og gå Besseggen på lørdag. Vel fremme på Memurubu kan du sove her til søndag, og ta båten tilbake til Gjendesheim og bussen hjem. Helt personlig liker jeg hytta Gjendebu bedre enn Memurubu. Gjendebu ligger i enden av vannet Gjende, og for å komme hit tar du bare båten fra Memurubu. Fordelen med båten er at du for en liten sum kan fylle opp en søppelsekk med ting dere ikke trenger på turen (som overnattingssaker), og sende med båten til dit dere skal gå til.

Ønsker du å gå Besseggen andre veien kan du også gjøre det. Da tar du bare båten til Memurubu på morgenen og starter herfra.

Bussen går tilbake til Oslo fra Gjendesheim kl 09.40 eller 15.15 på søndag

Står du opp litt tidlig kan turen mellom Memurubu og Gjendebu over Bukelegeret anbefales, men denne er brattere, og jeg ville ikke sendt bestemødre med stokk ned her. Pass på at dere rekker bussen fra Gjendesheim kl 17.25 (ankomst i Oslo kl 22.10).

Turen

Turen er klassifisert av DNT som en 7-timers tur, og med pauser må du nok regne med å være ute å gå i 8-9 timer. Turen er ofte overvurdert med tanke på bratthet. Ja, det er bratt ned eggen, men man MÅ ikke gå der det er brattest. Jeg har sett gamle damer i en alder av rundt 80 år gå eggen med stokk, så er du sånn passe oppegående helsemessig så kommer du deg trygt ned uten større problemer. Ønsker du det minst mulig «luftig» anbefaler jeg at du går fra Gjendesheim til Memurubu og ikke omvendt. Da går du eggen ned og kan hele veien sette deg på rompa om det er litt bratt. Jeg syns hvertfall det er mer ubehagelig å falle bakover når jeg går opp.

Turen er nok lenger enn du tror, og det gjelder  være forberedt på å være ute hele dagen. Turen går veldig mye opp og ned, og når du nærmer deg Memurubu er det alltid en krøn igjen. Selv om dere er slitne så ikke ta alt for mange eller for lange pauser, da blir kroppen kald, og turen føles bare enda lenger. Ta tre pauser i løpet av turen (10 min, 30 min, 10 min) + en teknisk stopp etter 10 minutter. Teknisk stopp er veldig viktig, og kan være essensiell for at resten av turen blir behagelig. De fleste som går turen må kle av seg etter de første ti minuttene av turen, da det går mer eller mindre rett opp fra Gjendesheim. Skift heller en gang for mye enn for lite, det gjør turen så veldig mye mer behagelig!

Det er ikke sååå bratt

Mat

Du trenger egentlig ikke tenke så mye på mat. Har du lavkarbo kosthold så kan det være fint å ha med seg lunsj til lørdagen (kokte egg, tunfisk, lavkarbo-brød osv). Når du kommer frem til Gjendesheim kan du kjøpe middag her. Du spiser frokostbuffet på Gjendesheim, og spiser du brød, så kan du smøre deg brødskiver til lunsj for 12 kr skiva. lørdagsmiddag spiser du på Memurubu eller Gjendebu, denne serveres som regel i syv-tiden. Så blir det samme regle med frokost og lunsj på søndagen.

Ha med litt nøtter til turen, veldig rask og enkel energi :)

Utstyr

Har du aldri gått i fjellet før så må du nok gå til innkjøp av et par ting, men det trenger ikke bli så veldig dyrt.

Sekk
Det burde holde med 20-30 liter til det du trenger i fjellet. Alt du skal bruke på hytta kan du ha med i en liten bag ved siden av som du sender med båten. Det viktigste med sekken er at den er godt på og har hoftebelte. Her er et par sekker som er fine:

dagstursekkdagstursekkdagstursekk
Bergans Hugger 30l, Norrøna Svalbard 30l og Deuter ACT Trail 28l (med desidert best bæresystem)

Fjellstøvler
Du trenger ikke å investere i de dyreste fjellstøvlene, men det er mye stein og det er en lang tur, så fottøyet er viktig! Jeg anbefaler hvertfall å ha en sko med høy ankel. De bør også være vanntette og ikke alt for tunge.  Pass på å gå inn skoene på forhånd. Her er et par favoritter:

dagstursekkdagstursekkdagstursekk
Alfa Horn, Crispi Skogshorn og Crispi Besseggen i lær (litt tyngre og kraftigere), disse koster rundt 2000 kr.

Har du ikke 2000 kr så kan du også bruke enklere sko, men investerer du i et par skikkelige fjellstøvler, så er det såå mye lettere å komme seg på tur siden :)

Her er et litt rimeligere alternativer, har disse selv, og bruker dem på kortere turer:

Klær
Kle deg etter forholdene. Generelt anbefaler jeg:

  • Ullsokker eller tekniske sokker
  • Fjellbukse
  • Langermet ull-trøye
  • Tynn fleece
  • Vannavstøtende vindjakke eller pustende regnjakke.

Er det fint vær kan det være greit å ha en shorts eller t-skjorte på lager. Er det litt ustabilt vær er regntøy veldig viktig, både for vind og vått, været kan snu fort! Her er en liste over hvilke klær jeg går med. Har selv opplevd snø i starten av Juli, så et par ullstillongs kan være deilig og.

Annet utstyr

  • Solbriller og solkrem er viktig. Selv uten blå himmel kan sola være sterk på hud og øyne, flatt lys er veldig slitsomt for øynene i lengden.
  • Kart og kompass. Ja folk går seg faktisk bort her og. Det er en lang tur, og selv om man møter mye folk på eggen, er det ikke alltid man kan følge etter andre på resten av turen. Kart kjøper du på dntoslo.no.
  • Vannflaske. Drikk nok vann under turen, gjerne 3-4 dl i timen, det er det kroppen klarer å ta opp. 1 liter vann burde holde til starten av turen, vanligvis kan man fylle på vann i elvene underveis (men det er noen timer til første elv), spør på Gjendesheim om du kan fylle vann, noen tider på året er det ikke så lurt (lemmen)
  • Førstehjelpsskrin. Det holder med et lite et fra apoteket
  • Myggmiddel. Ja faktisk, det kan være ganske mye mygg
  • Lakenpose. Lakenpose er et must på enhver DNT-hytte. Du kan jo sende den med båten da, om du syns den er tung (ironi)

Alt det andre du trenger til hytta kan du som nevnt sende med båten, så det kan anbefales å ha med seg en liten bag ved siden av sekken.

Husk medlemskort til DNT, så blir turen mye billigere, du får også en gratis tur med Nor-Way bussekspress når du melder deg inn!

God tur :)

Sometimes divorce or separation can send the funds in an opposite direction. Thanks sharing your opinions on this web site.
