The eastern point of the large Jetnamsfjellet mountain, about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) east of Jetnamsklumpen, has the name Jetnemsklumpen in Swedish[citation needed] (since that location is partially in Sweden). This point is considerably lower, at 1,206 metres (3,957 ft), but it is a quadripoint for four counties: Trøndelag and Nordland in Norway, and Jämtland and Västerbotten in Sweden.

NameEdit

The first element is from the Southern Sami language word "jitneme" which means "area covered with snow", and the last element is the finite form of Norwegian language word "klump" which means "clump" or "round mountain".
