Månafossen is a waterfall in Gjesdal municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The 92-metre (302 ft) tall waterfall is located along the river Månaåna, about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) east of the end of the Frafjorden where the village of Frafjord is located. The waterfall is in a fairly isolated area. There is a parking area nearby with a steep, rough 250-metre (820 ft) hiking trail up a mountainside to see the waterfall. The hike takes about 30 minutes.[1]
