Paanajarvi national park

P1050251National Park "Paanajarvi" is located in the north-west of Karelia, in its highest part on Maanselikja mountain ridge. The park was founded in 1992, its area is 104354 hectares.
The landscapes of the park are very picturesque - here mountain peaks alternate with deep ravines, numerous lakes, various bogs, wide rivers and waterfalls. Mountainsides and river valleys are covered with undisturbed forests, among which thin fir-woods predominate.
Under its bed curtains bilberries and other plants and herbs grow; fir-trees are hanged with lamps of "bearded lichen" - air purity indicator. In the mountains at the height of 400-500 meters fir-woods turn to sparse growth of birch, which later changes to tundra community. Along the shores of lakes and rivers pinery grows. Reindeer moss plantations are usual in its bed curtains.
The gem of the park is Paanajarvi Lake, which extended from the west to the east among picturesque mountain peaks. And it seems that one part of it approaches the water as steep rocks and the other – is far away from the water. In such places terrace appeared evidently between the lake and mountains, which became life arena for dozens of Finnish families, who settled in farm form around the lake. Microclimate conditions which appeared between the mountains were favorable not only for cattle breeding but for growing of row of specimen including barley and rye. But in general local inhabitants haven’t influenced the nature in a high degree. Today there are only small glades covered with meadow motley grass and raspberry-bushes which contrast with gloomy taiga view. It is not very large (1,5X24 km) but very deep (128m). There are many rapids on the rivers and some waterfalls. There are many valuable fish species in the rivers.

The waterfall Kivakka is located on the territory of National Park "Paanajarvi", on Olanga river 15 km away from its mouth. Before the waterfall the river flows in 2 branches. The waterfall belongs to the cascade type. Water in a strong steam falls down for 12 meters. Noise and crash deafen visitors, numerous sparkling splashes create a splendid view.

If you look at the waterfall from the left shore, then you will be even more impressed with a considerable look of Kivakka mountain. The waterfall can also be seen from the top of the mountain, where a special tourist route goes. From this point the waterfall looks like a thin white tape.
If you want to strengthen your impressions of a waterfall as a rare natural phenomenon then you should visit other waterfalls of the park - Mutkakoski, Mjantjukoski, Selkjakoski - which are smaller than Kivakka, but are beautiful in their own way.
