The glaciers of the Piellorieppe massif

The Piellorieppe massif from E The Piellorieppe massif from E, August 1, 1998. (69 kB)

The Piellorieppe massif is a complex high mountain massif between Sarvesvagge-Rapadalen and Lullihavagge-Kåtokvagge. The highest peak is Kåtokkaskatjåkkå (1978 m). In the western part of the massif there are a number of high valley passes: Lullihavagge, Kaskasvagge, and Kaskavagge, while Stuolovagge and Jeknavagge are dead end valleys. The Piellorieppe massif contains 10 glaciers, all of them rather small.
