Geocache Description:

Büdöskút valley is a beautiful place halfway between Pécs and Orfu.
The recommended approach is to leave your car at a parking place
near Remete-rét (waypoint PP_REMRET) then follow
the Kék sáv footpath begining at waypoint TH_BLUELN for 1,7 km (1,1 mile).


Since the cache and the footpath and all the nearby terrain is a
NATIONAL FOREST,
please especially take care of your environment.


The beautiful valley of Büdöskút is situated approximately halfway
between Pécs and Orfu. Although it provides comfortable resting
place, campfire sites and wooden benches for tourists, it is not
very frequented. The Büdöskút valley is especially rich in
springs
giving the finest quality of drinkable mineral water.
So if you happen to be tired and thirsty, you can refresh yourself
with great tasting cool natural mineral water.

The Büdöskút spring - after the place was named - is a
spring of fluctuating water output, it flows only after great rains.

The richest spring in the valley is the Feri-forrás,
which coordinates are given as a waypoint.

"Büdöskút" in english means "Stinking Well", has also a legend among local people.
Back to ancient times, the spring was held by a fierce seven-headed dragon.
Once a thirsty warrior came to drink from the spring and he was
attacked by the dragon. They fought long and finally all the seven
heads of the dragon was cut by the warrior. The dragon's carcass
fell into the spring thus making the water stinking.

Near the cache you can see the Pantheon of the Baranya county
hikers
at the coordinates N46 07.431 E18 10.933.
