150 meters east of the large sinkhole in the Lousoi plain, in the forest that starts above the sinkhole, we find the impressive Kaliakoudotrypa, a cave whose name means “jackdaw hole.” You will not find it easily without a guide or the GPS position of EG, as the path has closed over, and the whole area is swamped in fir trees, branches, and dense undergrowth. This is the mouth of a large cave with an area of about 360 square meters, decorated with stalagmites and stalactites. Kaliakoudotrypa was explored in 1972 by a team of the Hellenic Speleological Society headed by Anna Petrochilou and Ioannis Ioannou, who also mapped out the cave. It took its name because jackdaws used to live there ("black blackness fell, black as a jackdaw").
