  • With great views, nice hiking trails. The perfect destination to wind down in a natural setting. Nice shelter places along the routes.

  • It takes a little bit of effort to climb the Hill. But the view is beautiful and clean air. Enjoy, children are loved to be rolling in the snow...

  • It was the time of any such Pallakselle is to get. A small nature center also offers audio-visual experience and changing exhibitions. Right now, it's the bears featured in Russian. I recommend the independent movement and experience home!
