A local route from Luznava to the northern side, after some time, brings to Rezekne, a city in the heart of Latgale, sometimes called Latgale's heart. The traveller sees a wide and diverse panorama of blue lakes, which includes both Latgale Hills and Burzava River and Rēzekne River. The landscape of the Aamovo lake north of the city of Rezekne, where accommodation is also provided, is particularly valuable.

Intermediate difficulty level route – it is characterised by severe terrain climb and drops, road surface – predominantly gravel, locally with sand saturation. In the dry period, Trepe is present and there is an increased dusty caused by road transport. However, approximately 40 km or 45 % of the track-length road surface is made up of asphalt that facilitates driving and the surrounding landscape. Several sections of the trace are even very attractive to toughened towlers.
