When the Ramsele power plant was built between 1953 and 1958, about 7 kilometers of the Faxälven dried up.

The phenomenon can be studied in the old river channel after a stretch of 200 meters. The pots are up to 2.5 meters in diameter and equally deep.

Kvinnominne, Lärkvägen 1, Näsåker
A unique museum about women and goddesses. As it says on the website: “After a thousand years of silence” as the exhibition is called, leads the visitor into another world, into a bygone era… to the time before the Bible was written. It is a debate exhibition that brings out the hidden and almost forbidden women’s history.”
