Geocache Description:

Located on the Giza Plateau. The given coordinates represent one of many possible starting points. This virtual cache will provide you an opportunity to learn about and employ the seldom-used position-averaging feature on your GPS.

The objective of this virtual cache is to circumnavigate Kufu’s pyramid (the tallest structure in the world for over four millennia) then report back with your estimate of the coordinates of its 137 m peak.

To validate your visit, please send me both your track log and the coordinates that you acquired utilizing the position-averaging feature on your GPS. These coordinates should represent your estimate of the actual coordinates of the top of the Kufu’s (Cheops) pyramid.

Cheops V represents the fifth attempt to establish and maintain a cache at this amazing location. The first and original Cheops Cache (GC1D4) was placed by Ryan and Danny on 1/19/2001 followed by New Cheops Cache (GCGGVE) 7/23/2003, Cheops II (GCHQ92) 2/15/2004 and LH359-Cache (GCHTA1) 3/9/2004. Each site provides a unique perspective of this amazing location and it is recommended that you trek to all four to enjoy the views that each of the original cache owners had intended to share with you.
