Following the DNT track from Straumbu to Bjørnhollia the first steep climb goes up Gjermundstjønna, the doorstep into the Rondane.
The Rondane is the oldest national park in Norway, established on 21 December 1962. The park contains ten peaks above 2,000 metres (6,560 ft), with the highest being Rondeslottet at an altitude of 2,178 m (7,146 ft). The park is an important habitat for herds of wild reindeer.
The park was extended in 2003, and now covers an area of 963 km2 (372 sq mi) in the counties Oppland and Hedmark.
