One of the best remaining volcano craters is in Kannabe Highlands, and this is Kannabe Mountain. Even though it is a volcano (extinct), it is an easy hike, so you can hike to the top from the parking lot near the base in about 20 minutes. Along with the site from the top of the volcano that looks over the highlands there are also magnificent scenes along the old lava flow hiking trail where you can see a 24m waterfall.

- Hattan Waterfall
Hattan Waterfall is fed by the Inaga river and has a 24m drop. At the bottom of the water fall is a large basin that catches with falling water and creates a refreshing scene.
In early spring, we can see the residual snow on the back of the waterfall. In the summer you can see the waterfall surrounded by deep green. In autumn it is highlighted with bright autumn leaves, and in winter the waterfall becomes a winter wonderland.
