 Mongefossen waterfall

Mongefossen waterfall is unofficially listed as the fourth-highest waterfall in the world. It is located near the European route E136 highway and the Rauma River, which it flows into. There is some dispute as to the height, but it is generally listed at 773 metres. Unfortunately, as is the case with many of Norway´s tallest waterfalls, it has been targeted for hydroelectric power, which results in a greatly diminished water flow during the summer tourist season.

Mongefossen waterfall also holds the distinction as being the highest waterfall in the world which may be viewed from a railway station. In this case, they are located on the famous Rauma Railway, on the north side of the tracks between the villages of Flatmark and Marstein.
