Geocache Description:


Shanshuei Cave

Shanshuei Cave is a sea cave with unique feature. It makes sound!

Shanshuei was used to be called “Zhū mǔ shuǐ” which meant female pig water. One of the origin was told that there is a cave on the rock hill resembling female pig’s nose and making sounds while terrible weather. From the folk story, there has been with strange sound at the rock hill for a long while.

Here, let an earthcache in to elaborate how the strange sound occurred.

 

山水吼洞

山水吼洞屬於海蝕洞,並有一個獨特的特徵—它會發出聲音!

山水舊名為「豬母水」,其中一個起源的原因為豬母山上有孔穴,像是母豬的鼻子,在風浪大的時候會發出聲響,像是母豬吼。從民間故事得知有怪聲響出現在山水的岩石丘上已經很久了。

現在,讓地質寶入住來探詢這個怪聲響如何發生。

請留意,山水吼洞屬於地質敏感區,務必留意安全,避免從事危險行動。
