Vottovaara Mountain

DSC 0050In 2009 the Vottovaara Mountain, the highest of the West Karelian Elevation (417,3 m), became a new tourist object.
Vottovaara rock is a peak in the western part of the Karelian height. By its significance the monument may be refereed to spiritual structure which was erected for religious ceremonies. This spiritual complex occupies the whole surface of the rock and several heights situated apart near the rock. Its area is approximately 6 square kilometers.

The first unit in studying of this monument is spiritual stone. In science literature it is firmly but erroneously called “seid”. It will be more accurate to say that “spiritual stone” is rubble-stone or rock fragment which was artificially pulled out. Usually it is existence of “navershiy”, “nozhek” or evidently deliberate grouping. On the mountain park there is a thousand of stones which was laid unusual: large tonnage stones are laid on the “legs” – small stones. Such stones are named “seidy” and attributed to the holy things of Sami. A number of researchers argue that “seidy” were created by the inhabitants of an ancient North Country – Hyperborea.

DSC 0241The number of stones is greater than 1000. For the most part they concentrate in the center – right on the peak and steep south-western, southern and south-eastern slopes. Here they are on each rocky outcrop. Mainly spiritual stones are situated in groups (from 2 to 44 specimens in a particular group). Usually these groups attach to small reservoirs, dominant rocks without soil.

It is almost impossible to imagine the monument not bound to specific nature surroundings. On the peak (417 meters) it is very convenient to see high-altitude flora zonality – the upper level is forest-tundra already. Landscape is broken: rocky outcrops alternate not great marshes and small lakes. In natural rocky amphitheater, in 150 meters to the south-west from the peak the results of tectonic activity are seen: blocs are gaped because of splits, raised or inversely pulled down rocky fragments.Among others mysteries of the mountain is “Stairway to Heaven”, footsteps ending by deep precipice. Superstitious people believe that the mountain is the bridge to the other world. You can try unravel all these mysteries during the 3, 6, 7-days travel tours. And during the travel-tour the tourists will not only climb the mountain, but also meet the history of partisan movement in Karelia, connected with this area.
