Geocache Description:

Tämä on Kiteen ensimmäinen kätkö. / This is the very first cache in Kitee.

Kätkö on piilotettu jonnekin päin vanhan Puhoksen idyllistä aluetta. Vanhan Puhoksen alueella kulkee Puhoksen luontopolku, joka koostuu kahdesta lenkistä, jotka ovat yhteismitaltaan noin 4 kilometriä. Polun varrella on noin parikymmentä rastia, joissa käsitellään Orivettä, Pyhäjärveä ja niiden välistä Puhosvirtaa. Lisäksi erikoista huomiota saa osakseen ihmisen aikaansaannokset, kuten vanhan Puhoksen historia, kartanoyhteisö, myllyt, sahat, yms.

Itse kätkölle pääset lähes viereen myös autolla. Kätkö sijaitsee lähellä pientä vierasvenesatamaa. Matkalla kätkölle voit nähdä mm. vanhan myllyn sekä pienen vesivoimalaitoksen. Taskulamppu on hyvä varuste kätkön piilopaikkaa etsiessä.


The cache is hidden somewhere at the idyllic area of 'Vanha Puhos'. In the area there is a nature trail, which consists of two different paths. The whole path is about 4 kilometers long. Along the path there are about twenty signs, which give you information about lake Orivesi, lake Pyhäjärvi and river Puhosvirta. There is also information about man-made history like history of old Puhos, manor community, mills, sawmills, etc.

You can drive almost next to the cache also by car. The cache is located near a small boat harbour. On the way to the cache you can see for example an old mill and a small water-power station. A flashlight can be useful when searching this cache.
