Härma Walls in the Piusa River Ancient Valley

The Upper Härma wall or Keldri wall is Estonia's highest Devonian sandstone outcrop, where the edge of the valley reaches a height of 43 metres. The 150-metre outcrop extends to a height of 19 metres. The Lower Härma or Kõlgusniidu wall is 20.5 metres high - a projecting rock and one of the most beautiful walls in the Piusa Ancient Valley for its brightly coloured layers of clay and majestic pyramid shape. You can camp and make fires in the meadow at the bend in the river.
