Likholefossen is a waterfall in the municipality of Gaular, it is localized by the farm Hov in Eldalsdalen.

The origin of the name is from the old days when some of the farms at the end of the valley couldn't transport their dead ones to church in one day, they would then store the coffin underneath flagstones in the waterfall.

The area by the fall has been one of the focus point for the National Tourist Route Gaularfjellet to highway 13, it is among others build a spectacular bridge across the waterfall. The brigde makes it easier to acess the Waterfall Path on the southside of the river.

The waterfall is a part of the protected Gaular Watercourse.
