Askjelldalsvatnet is a lake in the municipality of Vaksdal in Hordaland county, Norway.[1] The lake lies at an elevation of 805 metres (2,641 ft) in the Vikafjell mountains between the valleys of Modalen and Eksingedalen. The 2.84-square-kilometre (1.10 sq mi) lake has a dam at the southern end of the lake. The dam is used to regulate the water level so that the water can be used for hydro-electric power at a nearby power plant. The lake Skjerjavatnet lies about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the west.
