The name means the Kjerag Bolt – a massive 5 m³ boulder wedged in to a crevasse on the edge of the Kjerag mountain in Lysefjorden, Norway. Without the help of any mountaineering equipment, brave visitors can walk on to the bolt – it is said to bring good luck.

Yet there are consequences for those unsteady of foot: the nearest ledge is 241 meters below. Once you bounce off that there is a drop of a further 735 meters. So, the question is, would you – like these mad fools brave souls – stand on the Kjeragbolten? There is absolutely no Photoshop used here, so if you don’t like heights, look away now!


Kuriositas readers - did you stand on the Kjeragbolten?
Answer = "YES, WE DID!"

Thanks to Kuriositas reader Nammi Lakhani who was fearless enough to stand (and even jump!) on the Kjeragbolten.  If you have a picture you want to share with our readers please send it to us at taliesyn30@aol.com.  Thanks!

Sisters Aleksandra and Magdalena Wrzos from Poland have also visited this amazing place - that's Aleksandra in the picture.
