At the beginning there is a gradual ascent starting from the lake. However, later the entire way mainly goes downhill, going through a valley surrounded by mountains. Generally, it is an easy walk. Total distance 16km.
When you exit the little or the big hut, you would need to traverse the river running out of the lake. The best place to do this is mostly where the river departs the lake. There are large boulders which can be used to jump on, to cross the river easily. However, some people may want to paddle instead. Remember that only a little distance downstream from this point, the river water tips into a rock-strewn gorge. It is advisable not to ford at this point.
Once on the other side, just walk on a track along the coast of the lake. This will take you through low willow bushes. After a while, there will be a marshy section to cross and then the track slowly moves away from the lake. Gradually, ascend uphill. You will pass a few small streams and wind through high and bouncy willow plants. You will come across a number of slim tracks. Therefore, it’s best to look out for markers and direct towards a small opening on the southern gradients of Innajuattoq. There are markers on some noticeable rocks which help to keep track of the way. Down below, on your left, you will see a little lake. On crossing a soggy section of vegetation filled with cotton grass, you will get to a rocky area with a little lake on its right. Do look back regularly while climbing up, to enjoy the serene views developing along the way.
The track keeps going on along a rocky gradient and at about 475m. it will pass a marker over an opening. Past, a trivial decline, the track shapes coarsely across a sheer gradient. It then joins a lengthy, low channel which is almost like a little valley hanging above a larger valley close by. The gradients looking to the south are filled with pretty little flowers. Pass a small lake by staying on its right. Face left in the direction of the Taseqqat Saaqqaa range, to see a few larger lakes. You will see some areas covered in snow all year round. Go past another larger and more rounded lake. Remain on its right. Ascend towards another open space at about 475m. Then go along the track to ascend a marker over the gap.
While still in a small valley, descend downward. However, on seeing a raised solid ground in the middle of a marsh, look for a marker and very thoroughly find the extension of the track which will be continuing below across a gradient and entering a valley, while remaining beneath the gradients of Nerumaq. It is fairly easy and comparatively simple to walk on the track which takes you into the valley. The track is visible and the ground is very much green with very few rocks. On traversing a stream, the track will slowly take you upwards onto a little hill made of rocky debris. There is a marker on top of it. There is a river down below flowing through an unwieldy marshland with tussocks. However, it still looks beautiful. You will see a bumpy structure growing in the opposite direction.
You can think that the track is going on a ledge because it remains rested on top of the river while staying at the bottom of a sheer slope. This ledge is made up of sand, rocks, and grit but mainly it’s made up of glacial deposits which have drooped down from the vertical sides of the valley and over a period of time have become amalgamated and green. You should be happy that this happened as it has made the ground solid, dry and fairly easy to walk on.
The valley then swerves to the right while staying under a sharp gradient and bypassing a number of big rocks. There is a sharp, stony gradient across the valley, which may be hard to see if you cross this area towards the end of the day. In front of you, there will be craggy ridges and perhaps a slight sight of the summits of Aqqutikitsoq which are covered with glaciers. On your left is a little lake. At the moment, let’s look at the Nerumaq Hut.0
