Haanja Upland.

Atkarpa 17. Haanja (Suur Munamägi)‒Tsiistre.

The old western taiga spruce forest growing on the slopes of Suur Munamägi Hill is a sight in itself. Through the nearly 150 years old spruces, the path leads to the observation tower of Suur Munamägi Hill. Along the trail, like everywhere in Haanja, western taiga dominates, with many deciduous trees besides the spruces ‒ mainly aspen, birch and also some other ones. In the dells between the domes, there are numerous damp patches of swamp forest, where traces of the activities of beaver can often be seen
