"'Climbing' to a world heritage site --- part 1" Korpilahti Travelogue by gubbi1

Korpilahti Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 27 photos

Well after following the signs I arrived at the foot of the hill on which one of the measurement points for the Struve Geodetic Arc was located. At the beginning of the narrow trail were some signs explaining what the Struve Arc is, but I already knew...

So I started the ascent on the hill, with just a little idea how far it is, but with full knowledge that it must be on the very top.

The trail was pretty narrow leading through the bushes.

Suddenly this guy cross my way, after taking some photos here surely was glad that I continued walking.

At several points there were signs with a map set up and arrow telling how many meter I already hiked and how much there is to go. For middle and southern Finland the trail was quite steep.

Another group of mushrooms. It was really surprising to me to see so many during my whole trip.

After a pretty narrow part suddenly stairs showed up leading onto some rocks... let's go to the next travelogue to continue.
