Geocache Description:

Huikeilla maisemilla höystetty maastokätkö.
A traditional cache with a nice view.


Kätköpaikka sijaitsee Melkkolan kylän lähettyvillä Suuri Pyhäkala järven rannalla. Autoilevat kätköilijät voivat jättää kulkupelinsä koordinaatteihin N 60° 56.045 E 028° 05.420.

Komeiden maisemien lisäksi kätköpaikka on erityisen kiinnostava esihistoriallisen menneisyytensä vuoksi. Kätköpaikan läheltä koordinaateista N 60° 56.191 E 028° 05.636 löytyy kiviröykkiö, joka on joko linnavuori (eräänlainen puolustusvarustus) tai niin sanottu lapinraunio (hautapaikka). Paikan pienestä koosta johtuen on kuitenkin todennäköisempää, että kyseessä on hautaröykkiö tai jonkinlainen rituaalipaikka.

Kätkörasia on regular kokoinen pakasterasia, johon mahtuu hyvin geokolikot sekä vähän isommatkin travel bugit. Ole varovainen kätköä ottaessasi! Turvavarusteiden käyttö ei ole huono idea.

Kätkö on periaatteessa mahdollista löytää talvella, mutta kätköpaikalle pääseminen on varmasti huomattavasti vaativampaa ja jäisillä kalliolla könyäminen voi olla terveydelle haitallista.



The cahce site is located near the village of Melkkola on the shore of lake Suuri Pyhäkala. If you come by car, you can leave it at N 60° 56.045 E 028° 05.420.

In addition to the breath taking view the cache site is especially interesting because of its prehistoric past. Near the cache at coordinates N 60° 56.191 E 028° 05.636 there is pile of rocks that is either the remains of some fortification or a burial ground. Because of the small size of the area it's more likely that the pile was used to mark graves or it was used as a place to perform some sort of rituals.

The actual cache is about a regular sized plastic container that has plenty of room for geocoins and travel bugs. Be very careful when taking the cache! Using some safety equimpent is not a bad idea.

It's possible to find the cache also during the winter, but getting to the cache site is probably a lot more difficult and fooling around on the icy cliff can be detrimental to your health.
