Bordermarkers 1 - 10
The start of a long hike. The markers 1 to 12 included some sub-markers are situated along the river Pededze.


Map Border Markers 1-10
Unfortunately I cannot indicate the exact spots of the border markers here. They are on the bank of the Pededze, that's for sue. But where exactly?

EE-RU 1 Border marker 1
Number 1 was not there during my visit in April 2016.
During the construction of the tripoint they placed it, so during my October 2016 I found it near the tripoint.
On the Russian side I could not discover a border marker 1. I don't think they will place a new marker 1.

EE-RU 1 Border marker 1A
Along the bank of the Pededze the Estonians place extra bordermarkers with sub-numbers. I pictured most of them. The shape is the same as the main markers, just the weapon of Estonia is missing. Besides that, they have no opposite marker on the Russian side. In July 2017 I found also a new placed border marker 1A. During my visit in October 2016 there was only a wooden stick, but now it's there.

EE-RU 1 Warning signs at Border marker 1A
To avoid that adventurous visitors are violating the 10 meter rule, new and more warning signs were placed. And also a reference to the border act.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 2
The first new Estonian marker which they erected near the Russian border. This one was placed in November 2015. I could see it from all sides as it is situated on the bank of the Pededze, more than 10 meters from the water.
On the background the river and the Russian side of the river.
I could spot the Russian marker, but it was situated quite far from the bank.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 3
Again along the bank of the Pededze. On the background you can regognize the Russian copy.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 3A
Unfortunately I missed 3A during my earlier trips when there was only a wooden stick. So I took this picture during my July 2017 visit.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 3B
Pictured during my October 2016 visit.

Border marker 3C
A typical picture of the situation on the bank of the Pededze. Recently many trees were chopped and thickets were removed to have a clean border-line. On the background border maker 3C

Move your mouse on the photo for a detailed picture of BM 3C.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 3D
Not placed yet. The location is marked by a small wooden stick which contains the number of the future borderpole.
I will find many more of these during this tour, only a few new Estonian markers are placed yet.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 3E
Again a small wooden stick containing the number.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 4
The new Estonian copy. The Russian copy is somewhere in the woods but not visible from here.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 4A

EE-RU  20160415 Small bridge
A small bridge over a creek that runs to the Pededze river. Propably meant for border inspection. I found more of those small bridges to ease passing the area.
As you can see, the Estonians are keen on keeping the banks clean. No trees, no vegetation in the border area.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 5
On the bare bank of the Pededze river.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 5
A close-up of the Russian pole on the other side. It was situated quite far from the river on the Russian side.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 6
Same area. There is a big advantage of visiting the area in early spring: hardly any vegetation.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 6A
Still only a wooden stick with a number written on it.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 7
On the background the Russian marker.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 8
You can see the markers are placed recently.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 8A
TEXT.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 9
On the Russian side there is a small road, probably used to mainiain the woods. I think this is not a public road, as most border areas are not accessable.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 9
Close up of the marker on the Russian side.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 9A
The last sub-marker for here.

EE-RU  20160415 Border marker 10
After an almost two hours' hike from the threepoint I come close to the road again. Almost the end of the border going through the Pededze.
