Eskerfossen

360º-Panoramas

A small waterfall in lower Eskerdalen, on the west side of Sassendalen. In summer, a small river is cascading down cliffs that are composed of hard Permian limestone layers known as „Kapp Starostin Formation“. It is worthwhile memorizing this term if you travel in Spitsbergen, as these hard layers form prominent landscape features in many places from Hinlopen Strait to the west coast.
