Being lower than the surrounding areas (ca 80 metres above the sea level) and therefore strongly paludified, the basin is almost uninhabited. In the centre of the basin there is Lake Endla, which is a relic of a formerly much larger lake. There are around ten smaller relic lakes in the area, the two best known of these are Lake Sinijärv and Lake Männikjärv. A centre of paludological (bog science) research has been functioning at Tooma (that's where we went) since 1911.
In order to protect the Endla bog system along with the lakes and the Norra-Oostriku belt of springs located at the southern foot of the Pandivere Upland, the Endla Nature Reserve was established in 1981, encompassing an area of over 8000 ha. The atmosphere was so idyllic and peaceful, such a good environment for perfect relaxing.
Well, enjoy the photos taken there and be sure to tell me what you think :)
