Bordvassvegen Canal


Bordvassvegen is a heritage trail alongside a watercourse. The Ottadalen Valley has very low precipitation. It is only due to an old and complicated irrigation system that it has been possible since early times to cultivate the local land. By digging watercourses - canals from the mountains - from the edges of glaciers or from artificial reservoirs fed by the thaws, water has been supplied to the dry fields and in land in the valley bottom. Bordvassvegen is one of many such watercourses in Lom. Oversettelse © www.noproblem.no 2010.
