Kuimetsa karst area

Address: Kuimetsa küla, Kaiu vald, Rapla maakond | Show on map
Method of payment: Cash

Kuimetsa is home to one of the most extensive and unique karst areas in Estonia. Visitors to it will see collapsed valleys, funnels, hollows, channels and caves. Five of the caves in the area are big enough to walk into. One of the biggest is 12 metres long and 8 metres wide and forms the opening of a collapsed funnel. During times of high water you can watch the flows passing through the hollows and channels and hear the rush of the water underground; at drier times, there is hardly any water to be seen at all.
