Geocache Description:

This is a 2 cache optioned Geocache. It's not a multi-cache but 2 Stand-alone caches close to each other. You can visit one of them or both according to your desire.

* Warning: If you have respect for other cachers who are going to come after you;
1- Pls. leave the cache 'hidden' as you found! If there are stones over it, place them back.
2- If there are muggles around try to disguise yourself, don't attract too much attention.

It's not a nice situation for other geocachers to come to the cache point from a long distance and search for hours and find nothing! Also I'm fed up with replacing lost caches at the same place.
Thank you for being considerate.

* First cache "Under The Rock" is just an ordinary cache. Nothing special about the view or area. Easy to reach, needs a short time to find.

* Second one "Under The Flag" is close to first one but this one has a scenic view of Karşıyaka and it's a bit harder to reach. There is an elevation difference of approx. 30 mt and a walking distance of almost 1 km between 2 caches.

* There is a bus station close to "Çaykur" so you can use local buses which goes along "Anadolu Caddesi". After you get off the bus or if you are using a vehicle, choose the way to “Çaykur”.

* Visiting the area in Day Time would be better, it might be looking a bit spooky in dark :) (And also might not be safe in night time)

N 38° 28.087 E 027° 07.183

How to go:
* Use the way to “Çaykur” and then take the first right
* Continue, you will see a lonely palm tree on your left.
* Walk till the end of the parking area.
* Find The Rock closest to road.
(Across the market building-which you can see a big signboard written Bahçelievler Düğün Salonlari on it.)
* Keep on walking further...

* Inside The Box there is an old Turkish Senior Sergeant badge included. If you are interested in those kind of stuff, might be a nice souvenier :)
By the way I'm not involved in Turkish army, it's just an old ornament from my youth, it was popular to attach unusual stuff to your jacket those days :)

Few meters after the large rock you will see a group of big stones, cache is hidden in between them. The cache is a Glass Jar which is placed in a plastic Bag (DarkBlue+White DeFacto bag).

Follow the path to the top of the hill where The Flag is located. To a certain point you can ride a car but then you have to walk or you have to come with a mountain bike to reach to the top. It's a short distance but still, if you are lazy enough and don't want to sweat, motorcycle or a jeep can be an option :)

* When you are in front of the flag, start walking down. Be sure that you have suitable sport shoes with you. (And better hold tight to the rocks so you don't slip by mistake.)

* I like to play table tennis. So inside The Box there is a new Ping Pong Ball included. If you are interested in table tennis, might be a nice souvenier :)

When you face the flag, there is a building behind you. Go around that building, behind that you'll see an old structure which looks like a bunker (from it's side). The cache is placed inside the wall at the side of that old structure. It's a 'Glass Jar' which is placed in a plastic blue Bag. I put some stones and straw in front of the plastic bag.
