Aluoja observation platform

Make a fire only in a place prepared and marked for it. To avoid disappointment, please take firewood or barbecue coals with you when traveling by car. Do not leave a burning fire unattended! When using a charcoal grill, pour the coals on the fireplace, not under the forest. Extinguish the fire properly, when leaving.
The view platforms are right next to the Aluoja cascade, giving a powerful spectacle. The cascade gets its waters from the Mägara stream. Before falling to the Pühajõe river valley, the Mägara stream forms a canyon that is about 700 m long and about 10 m deep (Aluoja canyon). The cascade includes five bigger stages.
