It's a remote place and hidden from the official tourism guides, but hill at the Mezezers skiing base offers one of the most breath-taking views in Latvia. The sight flies above the nearest treetops, opening a vast scenery over the nearby Odze lake and vast Vidzeme forestlands. The overall feeling and the view here is a bit similar (atlhough smaller in scale) to ultra-magnificent view from Gesundaberget mountain in Sweden.
