Kjolur route

Kjolur area (600-700m) lies between the Langjokull glacier in the west and the Hofsjokull glacier in the east, the glacial river Hvita in the south and river Seydisa in the north. In the east and the south are barren remnants of the Ice age, grey moraines, and low mountains decorate the otherwise plateau like landscape, which is ideal for shorter or longer hikes between huts during summer. The whole area was much more vegetated than it is nowadays. It was desolated by overgrazing and the forces of nature. On a fine day the panoramic view from the Kjolur route is excellent. There are several huts on the way across and most of them belong the Icelandic Tourist Association. The distance between the Golden Waterfalls in the south and the first farm in the north is about 200 km

Are The Holy Grail In Kjolur Route?

In 2004, a team of Italian researchers began an excavation in Iceland searching for a secret chamber that apparently had been filled with sacred books and objects from the Temple of Jerusalem. The search for the Holy Grail, which is associated with Christ’s Last Supper, legends of the Holy Chalice, the Knights Templar, and special powers, has continued ceaselessly throughout the ages.
Are the Holy Grail in the Valley of Thievs
? or in the mountain range Kerlingarfjoll? or by the river Jökulfall? or near Hveravellir?
