Aukštaitija National Park is one of the richest protected areas in Lithuania from the floristic point of view. Everyone who is interested in all kinds of plants is welcome to the Botanical trail. It circles near Lake Lušiai between Paluše and Meironys village. The trail is about 3,5-km long and is marked with a special sign – white square with green diagonal. More than 150 plant species are presented on this trail; nine of which are included on the Lithuanian Red List.
Botanical path circles near Lake Lušiai between Paluše and Meironys villages. The path is about 3,5-km long, coiling down the slopes and bases of the big hill. There are many small lakelets, rivulets and small swamps hiding in the hollows of the hill, surrounded by small natural blooming lawns and quiet murmur of boscage. The botanical path is rich with rare and infrequent varieties of plants: here you can see about 70 kinds of different plants. The botanical path is interesting not only for its flora but fauna as well. Here you can see “a bat’s house”, a net of a bird of prey, “wedding” of toads and the biggest woodpecker in Lithuania – a black woodpecker.
