Hermatige?

Do you mean the structures located within the "holes" right above the trees?

NEAT...how do you get INTO them...and how big is it inside?

Re: Hermatige?

"Do you mean the structures located within the "holes" right above the trees?" yeah, those are the ones.

"how do you get INTO them...and how big is it inside?" These are no longer used as far as we could determine (hundreds of years old I believe) but there are remnants of wooden ladders visible. As for the size, I'd guess tall-ceiling-room sized...the holes are large.
thanks for visiting.

Re: Hermatige?

I posted a photo with a close up of these structures if you're interested:
