Water from this source makes you younger

       Tvindefossen Waterfall

After our Flam train and Fjords adventure, and upon leaving Voss, we drove by one of the famous waterfall in Norway, Tvindefossen.  When we learned from our driver that people believe you will get younger if you drink the water from this source, we all wanted to go down and trekked towards the waterfall.

Tvindefossen waterfall is 12 km from Voss, usually said to be 152 metres high, but likely only 110 metres, is formed by a small stream, the Kroelvi, tumbling over a receding cliff. It is famous for its beauty. Buses sometimes stop for people to admire it. It was painted in 1830 by Johan Christian Dahl. The water at Tvindefossen waterfall acquired a reputation for rejuvenation and revival of sexual potency that made it one of the most important natural tourist attractions in western Norway, with as many as 200,000 people a year from the U.S., Japan and Russia visiting and filling containers with the water. Beside the waterfall just outside Voss centre, set in lovely surroundings, you can find a campingsite.
However it will take so much time to walk and touch the waters and besides it was too slippery so we contented ourselves in just taking photos.  Perhaps one day, I will go back and try it, when I am not in a hurry.
The waters of norway are really pure and tastes great! I would say its healthy spring water.
