Geocache Description:

Kätkö sijaitsee Venkaan lähteen läheisyydessä / Cache is located near the spring of Vengas

[FIN] Venkaan lähde sijaitsee Pudasjärvellä Vengasvaaran itäpäässä. Lähteestä pohjavedet purkautuvat laajana hetteikkönä Mertajokeen. Lähdepainanteen pohjalla kasvaa mm. harvinaista lehtopalsamia. Lähteen reunalla on vanha tervahauta sekä vanhojen sysihautojen jäänteitä. Alueelle pääsee Venkaantietä lännen suunnasta Yli-Iin Tannilasta ja idän suunnasta Pudasjärven Aittojärveltä, josta tuleva tie on osin huonokuntoinen, mutta ajettavissa tavallisella henkilöautollakin.

Kätkö on small-kokoinen ja siihen mahtuu pieniä esineitä ja kulkijoita. Talvellakin voi hakea, jos vain Venkaan metsätie on aurattu. Pane kumisaappaat jalkaasi, ellet halua kostuttaa jalkojasi. Kannattaa kiertää oikealta ja takaa tervahaudan kautta.

[ENG] The spring of Vengas is located on the eastern end of the hill Vengasvaara. Waters flows from the spring to the river Mertajoki. There is an old tar hole on the edge of the spring. You can drive to the cache site along road Venkaantie from the village of Tannila on the west or from the village of Aittojärvi on the east. The road from Aittojärvi is not in very good condition, but if you drive very carefully it is drivable by a normal car.

The cache is small sized plastic box with some changeables. The road is drivable also in the winter time if there is not too much snow on the road. Cache site is quite wet, so it is recommended to wear rubber boots.
