The boulder of Šaukliai is distinguished by the unique tundra-like landscape, unusual in Lithuania. A pedestrian nature path with an observation tower and information pointers introduces the unique flora and fauna of this area. The boulder of Šaukliai is one of the largest boulders in Lithuania and it is in the Šaukliai Landscape Reserve. It is a natural area of 79 ha formed in the last glacial period. It is also known as the Lithuanian tundra, in which, in its primeval position, the rocks of 0.3-1 m or even 3 m in diameter are fairly evenly distributed. Very lush, high, reaching even 6 m, junipers of various forms grow between them, forming a full brushwood. Part of the boulder area is fenced, because the moufflons band currently is grazing in it for nature management purposes.Show more
