History


Description

Valkulammi mountain is a maze which consists of numerous huge boulders forming a labyrinth of caves and gorges. They are a result of tectonic activity, neo-tectonic to precise which means they were formed by the ice shied of the last ise age. The weight of 3.5km of ice shield compressed the rock and built up internal forces, which were released in rock movement after the ice had vanished in a quite short period of time.

This is a sort of mystery place, as there are numerous resources on the web, but none is actually telling anything helpful. Google maps lists three lakes of the name Valkulammi, all of them nothwest of Kuhmoinen. So we can only suggest to ask the local tourist info and use a good map as there will most likely be no signposts. If you visited this place please send us more information!
