Låtefossen or Låtefoss is a waterfall located in Ullensvang Municipality in Vestland County, Norway. The 95-metre (312 ft) tall waterfall is a well-known tourist attraction in the area. It is special in that it consists of two separate streams flowing down from the lake Lotevatnet, and as they fall, the join together in the middle of the waterfall, just before going under the Norwegian National Road 13, making for a spectacular (and wet) view as one drives over the old, stone, six-arched bridge. The falls are commonly claimed to stand 165 metres (541 ft), data shows is not correct.
