Iisaku hill nature reserve and viewing tower

Tärivere hill – the highest natural point in Ida-Viru County – is home to the Iisaku viewing tower, which is 28 metres high. Situated 122 metres above sea level, it provides stunning views over the Alataguse forests, and in clear weather you can see as far as the domes of the Kuremäe convent and Lake Peipus.
