ข้อมูลเกี่ยวกับ คยอลลูร์ / คยาลแวกูร์

Kjolur/Kjalvegur is 600-700 m high mountain pass in the highlands, located east of Langjokull glacier and west of Hofsjokull. It starts by the popular rafting river Hvita (home of Gullfoss) in Arnessysla in the south and the Svartakvisl stream by Hveravellir in the North. 

The area is mainly barren, consisting of gravel, sands and lava, though it was better grown in former times. Some high mountains are in the area, such as Hrutfell and Kjalfell. To the north is the geothermal area Hveravellir, popular with travelers.

The pass was the main road connecting North- and South Iceland in former times and it is mentioned as far back as in the sagas.

In the 18th century the brothers of Reynisstadur perished there and the place is said to be haunted. The road is accessible by car in the summer.
