Salumägi in Salevere

Salumägi is one of the most beautiful places in Läänemaa. It is a type of relief designed by a mass of glacier ice and by the Baltic Sea. This limestone relief almost 400 million years old managed to withstand the wearing effect of the ice sheet. The steep limestone wall on the side of the sea of the elevation is probably almost 6000 years old. A spring called Silmaallikas flows from the wall of the shore – this is the place which was in the old times used as a place for sacrificing. Salevere hiking trail passes the spring.
Interesting facts: The remains of an ancient fort have been discovered in Salumägi and at the base of the hill you can see a very rare forest abundant in species.
