Viewed from Bandak, the rugged silhouettes of Risen and Gygri loom up against the sky, but Gygri has no head . . . There is a legend associated with these rock formations. The trolls Risen and Gygri lived at Juvstøyl. One day, when Risen went out on an errand, Gygri stayed at home to cook porridge. When Risen came home, he found neither the porridge nor the cook, as Gygri had gone to visit someone in the Bandak mountains. Risen became angry and ran out in ￼search of his wife. He found her at the top of the highest cliff face. They started fighting, pulling each other’s hair out, and finally Risen tore Gygri’s head off, but only after she had pulled off his genitals. Risen then threw her head across the fjord to Barskor. Since that day they have stood there as rock statues, and they are clearly visible both from Bandak and Lårdalstigen.
