The 258 meters hig mountain Torghatten seen from the top of the hill on Route 76 east of Brønnøysund. Brønnøysund. Brønnøysund. Through this mountain is a natural hole natural hole natural hole halfway to the peak and about 160 meters long, and from this point we can see right through it. The distance to the mountain is 17-18 kilometers and the angle isn't optimal (we didn't climb hills and trees to find a better spot), but it is discernible in the picture.

On the foggy evening of 6 May 1988 a Dash 7 airplane, heading for the Brønnøysund airport, crashed into the south (left) face of Torghatten. The 33 passengers and a crew of 3 were all killed.
