Gaizinkalns is the highest point of Latvia. Its altitude is 311.6 m above sea level, the relative height of the hill - 61.6 m; it extends about 1 km long and 650 m wide.
Visitors can walk the 2 km long nature trail that first leads to the top of the hill where you can see beautiful panoramic landscapes, but the way back goes along the scenic road of the foothills.

The area of Gaiziņkalns is privately owned by several landowners. Since summer 2012 the 2 hectares at the top of the hill around the sight tower are being leased by Madona district municipality.
