Driving from Tonstad to Ovre Sirdal on Rv468, you cross a bridge over the river Sira. There is parking on the left handside after the bridge and a man-made wooden platform/viewpoint of the waterfall.
It is a popular picnic area in the summer with information boards and trails. Next to the picnic area is a 3200kg rock named ‘Håvardsteinen’. The gigantic rock was moved by Håvard Valevatn, a very strong man from Sirdal during construction of the first road at Dorgefoss waterfall.
Another old tale from Sirdal describes how prisoners with a death sentence were given a last chance to save themselves, by jumping over the Dorgefoss waterfall. If they made it they were free, if not, the fall down the waterfall would fulfill the death sentence.
