Mākoņkalns Hill and Volkenberg Castle Ruins

Mākoņkalns a.k.a. Padebešu Hill rises like a hedgehog's rounded back not far from the southern coast of Lake Rāzna, standing out above the comparatively flat surrounding landscape. Fragments of the great stone wall and a caved-in underground passage is all that remains of the castle today.

What to see

The hill overlooks a picturesque landscape with Lake Rāzna, but at the very foot of the hill lies small, clear lake Ubagova which the people call Latgale's clear eye.

To reach the top you need to use precipitous stairs with banister. But for distal walking use trails with information boards.
