Cache hidden above the waterfall of the Grmecica
The best approach is as follows: Use the underpass a bit east of the tiny railwaystation at Nomenj to cross the traintracks. There are parking possibilities here. However you can drive a bit further - go right on a sandroad until you reach the bridge at N 46° 17.130, E 14° 0.294. Cross the bridge and follow the road until its end, then the track to the waterfall.
Once you reach the waterfall look up. Do you see the tiny footbridge high above between the narrow walls of the canyon? That's where you have to go. Good paths to this place start about 50m east and west of the waterfall.
Once you reach the bridge enjoy the view and follow the path upwards to the cache location. The cache is hidden in the roots of a tree
No dangerous climbing is needed for this cache, the hiding place can be reached from safe ground. If the ground is wet bring good shoes though.
Due to the nature of the hiding place, satellite reception can be bad. If you believe you've got better coordinates than mine, please post them with your log.
You could follow the path further up the canyon, it leads you to the usual startingpoint for a canyoning trip down the creek. A short distance above the place the path reaches the creekbed you can see the remains of a recent rockslide - on a distance of about 50m the whole right wall of the canyon collapsed into the creekbed.
The only source of the Grmecica is a karst spring about two km upriver, so the waterlevel can fluctuate wildly. In spring the creek swells to river-like proportions, while in the height of summer and in autumn sometimes there's no water at all. In the dry seasons the best time to visit is after rainfall. If you want to do the canyoning trip but lack the equipment or experience you can book a trip here
