Geocache Description:

A cache in the Kep National Park

By now the area around Kep seems to be a cache-free zone so we thought we might motivate some geocachers to visit this nice location by placing the first small plastic box nearby. Nearby, that is close to the entrance of the Kep National Park.

You can be lazy and just log the cache at the nice location, possibly have a drink and a pancake. Enjoy the sunset but don't forget your torch for the way back home. Or you spice up your hike in the park with a cache hunt.

To find the cache it is not necessary to go to leave the path. Be aware that the cache is located inside the national park. You have to pay an entrance fee of 1 US-$ per person.

The box is under some stones. We tried to place it in a way that you don't need to blindly finger in a hollow where you might find something more defensive then a tupper box. Be careful anyway.

A few points of interest about this spot: Kep has been a sea resort under the French until the Khmer Rouge took over. Most buildings have then been destroyed, and the place was rather deserted until about 10 years ago when it started to become popular again. Now one of Cambodia s booming coastal places, it has an increasing number of guest houses, restaurants, cafes, and the famous crab market. However, the National Park is a nice hiking area, you see squirrels, monkeys, birds and butterflies. There is an association - the Kep Squirrel Association - which tries to take care of the National Park, keeping it clean, and providing guidance and place to rest and enjoy the views. The nearby café has an exhibition on the park.

Small note on cache maintenance: There is a local cache guardian. Name and contact info on file with geocaching.com.
