Emumägi hill is the highest point in the Pandivere uplands and northern Estonia. There is a 21.5-metre wooden observation tower on Emumägi hill. You have to pay to visit the landscape park, which is managed by the Väike-Maarja rural municipality.
In addition to the observation tower, Emumägi is also home to an alley of tree statues of cultural societies, a wooden hut, a sunrise house, an old cemetery, the ‘Kersna bench’, and camping and picnic areas.
