It is a botanical phenomenon - the green leafy tube in a woodland about three km long, which is created by trees and shrubs intertwined with each other.

It is part of the railway lines, linking Klevan with Orzhiv. The gorgeous corridor provides a passage for a private train transporting wood to a local factory. They say, a fine-arched forest tunnel was shaped by a regularly passing train.
