Läti meadow and seasonal flood

The spacious meadows in Läti village in Soomaa are a beautiful sight at any time of the year, but this area is particularly interesting during the seasonal flood period.

Then, the whole area is under floodwater and only roadways are visible between the fields of water, and often, even these are partly covered in water.

This usually happens in the spring, when the thaw and rain water come together and the surface is not able to absorb all of the water. The water level rises in 3 to 4 days and stays high for a couple of weeks. 

A similar sight can also be seen during a very rainy autumn.

The Läti resting place has a watchtower, which is perfect to observe all of this. When it is cold, you can also make a bonfire here.
