Area: 1 km²
Birch dominate in the locality Bihkkač¨ohk. Here we find different vegetation zones, from high birches at the bottom of the hillside and Dryas octopetala on the top. In the forest we find in addition to birch, elements of rowan, goat willow and aspen. Of interesting species can be mentioned; Lesser Butterfly-orchid, Long-Bracted Green Orchid and Chives. The area is generally rich in orchids; amongst others the orchid Listera ovate is registered. This is unique for Finnmark.
Like Børselvdalen here is also registered a relatively high density of passerine birds, including the Common Redpoll, the Willow Warbler and the Brambling. Numbers of registered birds are not particularly high.
The area is grazing pasture for sheep and reindeer.
