One cottage below Unna Allagas close to border cairn 263 on the Norwegian border, now also with a sauna (built in the summer of 2014). During the Nazi occupation of Norway in WWII, there was an important observation post here. Apart from the nearby DNT cottage site west of Čunojávri the obvious place to visit in the vicinity is the old copper mine of Sjangeli, which was in operation – on and off – between 1696 and 1840, and nowadays the local Sámi run a small tourist facility there.
