Two cottages north of the Tjäktja Pass, above the western mouth of Šielmmávággi.
In the olden days when the Alesjaure cottages were situated further to the south than they are now there was no cottage here,
but after a fire in the late 1970s it was decided that the Alesjaure site would be moved north,
at the behest of the local Sámi. As a consequence the new distance between Alesjaure and Sälka was deemed a bit long,
and the Tjäktja cottage was erected midway. Since Tjäktja is much smaller than both Alesjaure and Sälka,
it is not uncommon that things get crowded here in the height of the tourist seasons,
although to a somewhat lesser extent nowadays after the bed count was increased from the previous 22.
