Terrain descriptionThe terrain includes the Karula National Park and surrounding areas. The landscape features the Karula Uplands with varying land forms of glacial origin, notably hillocks, moraine and esker formations with relative height up to 30-40 meters. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the terrain is about 80 meters. Parts of the terrain are flat. There are a number of lakes as well as bogs and marshes of different size. Forests of varying types (predominantly coniferous) cover over three quarters of the terrain. Passability of the forest varies from very good (open pine forest) to very bad (alder thickets). There is a network of tracks and forest rides. The terrain also includes cultural landscapes presenting traditional South Estonian dispersed villages and farmland.
