About
The picturesque coastline and five islands of Lake Puhajarv make it the biggest and most beautiful lake in the Otepaa region. There is a beach with a beach house, ball game courts, rest areas, cafés and a pier by the northern tip of Lake Puhajarv.There are many springs in the lake and the Spring of Love is the most famous of these. The Vaike Emajogi River starts from the southern tip of the lake. A 12 km hiking track runs about the lake.Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso blessed the lake in 1991 and this event is commemorated with a wooden sculpture on the lake’s shore by the park.

Relax and enjoy
Aug 2018 • Family
One of the most beautiful lakes in South Estonia, surrounded with beautiful legends and myths. My favourite one is that the lake was created by tears of the mothers of killed soldiers, and that explains the name - Saint Lake.
Nevertheless, the lake is much larger, than it seems. Has lots of spots for swimming around it, very desecrate, and a nice public beach. Water is exceptionally clean and is relatively cold at all time due to numerous feeder inside it. Some of them are outside the lake and it is possible to drink from them.

Good place
Aug 2018 • Family
Very nice lake. Perfect for swimming. Families with little children love this place because here is spacious and the water does not go sharply deep. You can also go for a walk around the lake or rent a boat.

Lake Pühajärv offers you many different options to spend your day. You can enjoy swimming and hiking. You can make shorter walks in the park by the lake or shorter walks back and forth or you can walk around the lake an see its beautiful shore and wonderful views to the lake and islands.

Being by the lake is a pure pleasure. Enjoy walks or jogging, enjoy the beautiful nature (especially, sunsets). This is said to be the most often painted object in Estonia.

Energetic walk around the lake

There is so much more than just a walk around the lake. This place fills you with energy and power if you just let it happen..

Skiing on the ice

We has a nice sunday skiing on the lake (10km). It is good to ski also around the lake, although the track is not the best. After ski trip we has a sauna in Pühajärve spa.

It was a great feeling to walk around this beautiful sacred lake. Even though it was a cold day with a slight drizzle we enjoyed taking photos and being there.

A Great Place to spend a relaxing day
Aug 2015 • Family
Nice, quiet, easy access, good walking, great cafe with a view on the lake, wonderful swimming in a sandy beach. Very easy to spend a few hours if not an entire relaxing day.
