It is not difficult to enter this wide and deep glacier. At the bottom of the valley we find deciduous forests and as we go up we will go into Scots pine woods and come across woody vegetables such as the hazelnut tree and viburnum. If we stop to listen, we will hear birds such as the white wagtail, the wren, the robin and the blue tit. As for the wildlife, the most common small mammals are squirrels and wood mice or bank voles which, though commonplace, are more difficult to see.
