In the Nelspruit Nature Reserve.
An ancient Hindu worship site which dates back 1,800 years, and is still in use today.
At the worship site (the co-ords above), you'll need to find a clue, which will help you find the cache a few hundred metres away on top of a hill with a view over Nelspruit.
There are two ways to access the cache:
1. From parking co-ords P1 at the entrance to the nature reserve, find the sign for Shiv Lingam and follow that trail which seems to head off in the wrong direction, but will get you there. This access is ideally suited if you intend doing other caches in the nature reserve.
2. Alternatively, for quick access to only this cache, then park at parking co-ords P2. Make your way around the houses, and follow your GPS to Shiv Lingam. The final cache hide is quite close to this parking spot.
Find the date that Shiv Lingam was discovered - 198X.
Follow the trail to TURNOFF, turn off the main trail, and follow your GPS to the cache which is hidden at S25°29.1A2 E030°58.4B1
After finding the cache, if you parked at P1, then make your way back to TURNOFF where you can either return the way you came (recommended), or take the slightly shorter but yukky route along the sewer line. For the adventurous, you might want to find a shortcut down the cliff from the cache straight back to the parking.....
This cache replaces GC169TX Shiv Lingam, which was hidden at the worship site. We recently found out that the site is still actively used for worship, so, out of respect, we decided to list this new multi instead. It will take you to the worship site to find a clue, then lead you to the cache a few hundred metres away.
