This is part of South Iceland route

Skógafoss

The drive got even better in another 30 minutes of drive on the same road. Skogafoss is originated from the notorious Eyjafjalljokull and also from the Myrdalsjokull glacier. As the Skoga river approaches the edge of the moor, the river runs over a layer of rock until rushing down in a beauitul skirt shaped waterfalls. Its 15 meters wide and 62 meters of height. The cliffs are actually ancient coastal cliffs which were formed by coastal erosion at the end of the last ice age. One can walk upto the pool underneath the waterfall after crossing pebble filled path. My favorite was walking to the top from the east side of the falls all the way up. Thanks to the lovely metal staircases, it was a brisk morning walk that promised a view till the horizon with the spectacular mix of green shades. If one doesnt mind the slippery 50 feet trial, halfway, could feel the sound that pumps the heart naturally. I stoodstill not to shake myself and slowly took steps back to return to the metal stairs. From the top various hiking routes are there. While I wishes I had time to hike, happily settled down just by knowing where it goes. The hikes takes almost to the both the origins via the mountain passes and another route takes one to Thorsmork, one that I wanted to visit using 4×4. 😐
