Welcome to Chuchichäschtli Deluxe! Did you pronounce that correctly? If not, don’t worry you’re not alone — trying to pronounce the name of this geocache is almost as puzzling as the cache itself.

Deep in the forests of Cambodia lies the ancient city of Angkor. It is believed to be the largest city of its time spanning 154 square miles (400 square km). To put that into perspective, the land area of Manhattan in New York City is only 23 square miles (59 km). This maze of temples has been overgrown by the strong-willed and vine-like roots of Banyan trees. The aesthetic of the city sets the perfect scene for an action-packed adventure searching for “ancient artifacts,” also known as geocaches.
