  • Getting to Pakasaivo is a fairly long road trip but well maintained. The car will defeat it without any problems. From the large forest car park (on it the camping facilities) We are waiting about 200 meters walk over the beautiful lake. Steep cliffs of ten-meter cliff descend to the calm waters of the lake, and in the background you hear a murmur of a stream of steep rocks. The beauty of wild nature gains an additional aftertaste when we know the beliefs of the saams and we know that it was an important place of worship and a gateway to another world. It is easy to imagine the climate of this place when the shamans ' singing and the sounds of the drums came from the highest cliff. Me because of the round shape of the lake and the high shores, as well as the mystical significance of the place, was the memory of the Mayan cenotes on the Yucatan Peninsula. In any case, absolutely worth seeing. At the moment there is a renovation of the path on the shore of the lake, which slightly reduces availability but once you need to do it. It is worth to have a remedy against mosques, attacking a busy but if you visit this place, it is due to the views, in the summer.
