Valtri kaevu rest stop

Järva County, Endla Nature Reserve
Valtri well is a man-made spring. The legend goes that Valter from Saaremaa found water while digging a ditch at the Jõeküla road. A strong jet of water gushed out and rose to the height of treetops, flooded the nearby grasslands, and drowned the ditch digger. Over the years the flow of the spring has reduced and at times it stops altogether.
