The 28-metre Tellingumäe viewing tower offers spectacular views over the meadows along the Mustjõe River. Nearby, this river joins the Koiva (Gauja in Latvian), which forms a 22-kilometre stretch of the border between the two countries.

The hillside recreation area has two campfire sites, a wooden barn with an attic, a canopy table, a swing, and a DC. Camping is also allowed.

At the foot of Tellingumäe, you can join an 18 km cycling trail or 2 km hiking trail around the hill. Here, you can also join the 60 km Old Livonia heritage culture trail, which follows the course of the Koiva River in Estonia and Latvia.
