The nature reserve has 13 lakes: parts of Pertozero and Sundozero’s water area, as well as 11 internal ones – Pandozero Lake, Gebozero Lake and 9 small forest lakes lost in the lowlands between the rocky ridges. Here more than 200 species of birds and about 50 species of mammals have been registered.
