Geocache Description:

Unfortunately the tourism office I work for is now focussing on Northern Vietnam, so I am going to relocate to Hanoi. So this cache will really depend on you to maintain it! Otherwise I will have to disable or even archive it. Thanks!

Takou Mountain offers a beautiful tropical rainforest Full of birds and Exotik Wildlife. Hike up or take the gondola for phantastic views. At the top of the Peak You will See the largest reclining Buddha in Vietnam. 

To reach the Buddha You will have to climb many steps - so this is not suitable for People with respiratory or Heart Problems or walking disabilities. The Cache is very easy to find - I am describing the Location so precisely so you don't attract attention. Please remember to Act in a dignified and sensible Way !

The Cache is hidden near the Buddha Head beneath a Blue sign. The plastic Tube is in a brick hole (Upper left) with two ends, so to get it out you simply Need to push with a small Branch.

Please do Not Act suspicious - just ist down on the steps, relax, take some photos, a quick grab and you may Log on the steps.
