Singi-Kaitumjaure, The King's Trail

From Singi, the King's Trail follows the Tjäktjavagge Valley southwards. The stage is an easy hike with small differences in elevation, and follows Tjäktjajåkka stream all the way. The first part of the hike is a little hilly, but after a few kilometres the terrain changes to flat moorland. Between the mountain summits Stuor Avrrik and Stuor Jierta the valley becomes narrower with steep sides. For those interested in flowers, a short detour is recommended up to and down from the lime rich slopes of Stuor Jierta. After the suspension bridge across Tjäktjajåkka stream, there is a gradual downward slope towards mountain birch forest and the Kaitumjaure Cabins. During the last section you have a good view of the narrow mountain lake Padje Kaitumjaure (Bajip Gáidumjávri).

There are good tent pitches and plenty of water along the stretch.
