Glittertind is the second highest mountain in Norway, located in the spectacular Jotunheimen region, eighty miles northwest of Lillehammer. It rises immediately east of Norway's highest summit, Galdhøppigen (8,100 ft.). Its most recent official elevation is only sixteen feet lower than Galdhøppigen, but its height varies depending on the depth of its summit snow and icecap, whereas Galdhøppigen's summit is rock. In earlier surveys Glittertind was measured as the higher of the two mountains.
