At a plateau at 1830 metre altitude, just below Pårtetjåkkås peak, lies the weather station Cederqvist visited and photographed. The weather station was built by Axel Hamberg and was completed in 1914. During 1914-1918 the station was inhabited by two weather observers who performed precise measurements of the weather around the clock. In 1917, an accident occurred at the weather station at Pårtetjåkkå and one of the observers disappeared in a snowstorm. The accident remains a mystery, and the body was never recovered. Because of the site inaccessible geographical position, the station and the abandoned measuring instruments remained untouched for over a hundred years.
