WILD PINE FOREST AND ANCIENT MONUMENT FROM THE ICE AGE

A favorite destination for rock climbers

TURUNVUORI ROCK CLIMBING AREA AND 1/4 GLACIAL POTHOLE


Turunvuori is a geological destination along the Kokkosenkyläntie, and especially a rock climbing favorite.

There are beautiful views on the top of Turunvuori. The mountain has a glacial pothole (about 12 meters), which has been excavated in the rock during the ice age. At the bottom, the diameter is about five meters and at the top it is about three meters.

NB! The rocks in the area are really steep and there are big falls on the cliff, so the attraction is not suitable for small children.

There is no fire place and no waste management in the area, so all the garbage and waste should be taken with you.

There is also a geocache in the area. Read more about geocaching on Hiking at Lake Korpijärvi page. The geocache information is found on Bike routes at Lake Korpijärvi page.
