Geocache Description:

The traditional cache is in the forest about 50 yards from the castle under a group of trees.



The village of Kereki is 6 miles from Lake Balaton in Somogy County. One of its points of interest is a medieval castle ruin. The castle can be reached several ways; the shortest one is difficult to navigate in rainy-muddy weather. The suggested parking is at a N46°47,167 E17°54,1790. From here, you can go as the crow flies (this is the shortest route, but it is quite steep). The traditional cache is in the forest about 50 yards from the castle under a group of trees. The castle was presumably built during the first decades of the XIV century. Its walls were carried off during the XVIII-XIX centuries for building, among others, the church (1830) of Kerek and a Hunters’ Lodge nearby. The ruinous lodge has not been fully restored even though there were smaller excavation in 1961-62.
