Geocache Description:

Simple grab and go cache on the road up to a beautiful gated community.  Easily accessible to the public, and it just requires a pen or pencil to sign the log


It is surprising that in an area so rich in IT communities that there are so few Geocaches. I visit the region every 6 months or so from the US to spend time with my local teams, and looked to take this opportunity to start to address the deficit in caches.

Whitefield is also known as “The Land of Gated Communities” which is conveniently located in East Bangalore. It was originated in the late 1800s as a residential space for the Eurasians of Bangalore. It is accounted as the 9th top region out of 20 regions to live in as per the DNA-IMRS survey of Bangalore’s Best Localities. The region is developed in two concentric circles, out of which the Inner Circle faces greenery while the Outer Circle incorporates the inner one.

Until the early 2000s Whitefield was quite a small settlement. The region started to boom as a major neighborhood when the IT companies started to settle down. The region has one of the oldest and first information technology parks (International Tech Park, Bangalore). Since then, the region has become a hub for the IT and R&D companies. The region is conventionally one of the regions of Bangalore and is included under BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike).

This is a very simple cache to encourage more caching in the area. Its easy to drive up to (or walk if you live in this large community); just Park, sign the log and go. Its being looked after for me by a local cacher and resident.

Dont forget a pen or pencil - its a Micro cache

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