Two cottages at the western end of Bajip Gáidumjávri, where the very long valley of Čeakčavággi ends. The fjeld Sáŋarčohkka at the base of which they lie is a common target for shorter tours, being very easy to climb and giving grand views of both the valley below and the peaks of Sarek to the south. Since the distance to Teusajaure is only 9 km, this is a good way to spend the afternoon for travellers who arrive early from that direction – one need not go very high to get a good view of the lake and the Kaitum valley. As of 2016 there is also a sauna at Kaitumjaure.
