  • One day, when the rains finally left us, we decided to drive to the mountains of Sampo, not so much information and this place is not. so popular (free)! No, there kind of like come excursions, but small and mostly in transit, while rushing to other more groomed places) for us it is more of a plus than a minus. The same advantage was that it was relatively close to our destination. A pointer to a nondescript road, so better watch carefully what b does not pass. Lifting on mountain not strong, it is not very big. Someone once took care of tourists and locals have done a little paths, steps and fences (wood) ... over time, the truth is hlûpovatye, but yes and God with them. In this place it is best to visit on a clear day, you can see a large area. With the magnificent panorama of mountains, forests and Islands Končezera, visible pipes Kondopoga pulp and paper mill. According to a legend, you can make a wish and it will come to pass, of course. But engage embark shreds of clothing, on trees, we didn't. We are more interested in the nature of the place. You can go down and walk on lesočku, for this ladder, built in two places. Trails go to the so-called Glade tourists (built tables, benches ... toilet), all natural, a bit frayed. An attempt to reach the lake itself was not successful. .. either overgrown or Fenland.. While strolling found mushrooms, berries ... well all as it should be in the forest. .. Climbed back up the mountain, fortunately while strolling people wasn't that definite plus (living creatures too any not found), admired again gorgeous view and decided to go on a mushroom hunt. When they left, pulled up two minibuses (as said before ... apparently passing on others tour decided to jump) ... but I don't know how they did it is convenient ... and whether they could look a lot ... so. .. place (the Hill, mountain) are quite narrow ... and nicer to admire the fewest people.
