Kakarberget Cave in the Darkness

Apparently, we like caving so much that we're willing to search forests in darkness, with headlamps, to look for caves.

This Sunday's evening expedition was to Veikkola, Kirkkonummi. We wanted to see three caves, but of course it is never easy to find and especially identify them. The book on Finnish caves had indicated that there'd be a cave on the Kakarberget canyon. We looked for it... and found three. The largest one is high and deep, but not very cave-like. There was also a small corner cave and a smaller roof cave with a much lower ceiling.

Nice place nevertheless, worth visiting. We also draw a basic map of the caves:

Coordinates, the big roof cave: N 60.24161613 E 24.49722240.

Coordinates, the small corner cave: N 60.24248172 E 24.49681784.

Coordinates, the low roof cave: N 60.24269593 E 24.49659159.

When approaching this cave, it is best to park in Laitamaa, and walk through the woods to the canyon area. There's also a very nice (and loud!) stream running nearby.
