Geocache Description:

The Zöld sáv (green stripe) footpath leaves Sümeg to the North. At the West side of this path, about 25m from it you should climb on a cliff to reach the cache. Look below your feet!

The White Rocks can be found at the east, north-east side of the Sümeg Castle and they are part of the Rendeki-mountains. From the castle you can reach it in half an hour, it has got a wonderful view to the city, and in clear sky you can see the neighbouring castles (Tátika& Rezi) and the Sztupa of Zalaszántó (it's a holy place for Buddhist). The forest around the rocks is wonderful in every period of the year.

Suggested path (there and back about 2,5 kms): As a starting point I suggest the car park next to the road 84 (Parking). From this place the GC12KAG is near, which is good as a warming-up, or a leading down before or after visiting the White Rocks (and don't forget to explore the castle itself!). From the car park go in the underground passage under the road 84, then opposite- right there will be a stair, go up on it, and follow the Zöld sáv (green stripe). On some trees you'll find the old sign Zöld háromszög (green triangle), but don't let it disturb you! From the footpath there is a short path to the top of the rocks, where you'll find a large Hungarian flag. From here you can admire the view. With young children carefully at the edge of the rocks! I've been here a lot and at the last times one or two big bird was flying in the view. You can wonder at the birds from this place.

To the cache go in at the west side of the path. Follow the GPS, and you'll reach a cliff which is separated from you by a small cleft. Climb through it (check the terrain rating!), and search for the cache, dimensions: 7*18*20cms (2.7*7*7.8 inches). Please handle it with care, and do not upload any pictures about the hiding! Thank you!

We wish nice weather and a good trip for everyone!!!
