Are there geocachers in India? Tamil Nadu? Chennai?

 

Give a shout out...maybe we can organize an event!

 

I am currently in India (19d 01.494N and 073d 02.204E) Mumbai on a long (3 week) business trip. I can only find One Geocache site within a 200+ mile area. I will try to visit that one - elephanta caves - but not sure I will get there.

I was considering setting up additional geocaching sites here as I come here fairly frequently. This is my 6th trip in 4 years. :)

 

I have been concerned about setting up a site as I am not native to the area and don't know the local laws perhaps as well as I should.

 

Last time I was here I went to Matheran and would like to do so again and put a site there, but again, not sure the legality of it.

Hi,

I am Archi from Ahmedabad, western part of India.

 

I would like to be a part of the geocaching community.

 

I have pretty good map collection for the city with accurate details.

 

I have good handheld Garmin GPS and PDA+GPS phone and iPaq with bluetooth GPS.

 

I want to create cache's for Ahmedabad. Any clues how to start on? Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Archi

Yes please, event in Bangalore! :blink: I've been trying to find some geocachers here in Bangalore but it's not so easy. Where they all are hiding? I'll be in Bangalore until 16th January, so please let me know if you're around.

Greetings India Cachers,

 

I live in New York City but, since discovering geocaching, can't conceive of traveling without finding at least a cache or two in any destination. I'll be in India the last two weeks in April (Delhi, Agra, and Uttaranchal, around Mussoorie), and would love to meet other cachers or get some leads on caches near the places I'll be visiting. A search for those in India doesn't map them all, so I need to go through the list (44 India caches in all, it seems) and see what's where. Such a large country--so few caches! Please feel free to contact me directly.

All the best,

ChayBeeTee

Hey ChayBeeTee,

 

I'm sure you'll be able to find at least a couple of caches while you're in India. I know there are at least two caches in Delhi.. The cache at the Taj is pretty tricky due to the recent security measures.. ( they don't allow you to take the GPS inside), I think there is a cache in / around Mussoorie as well..

 

I just started Geocaching too, and since there aren't too many caches to find, I'm keeping myself busy setting up new caches..

 

Hope you have fun! Let me know if you need help.

 

Cheers!

Hi all,

 

I wonder if there are any geocachers in New Delhi on sunday may 10th 2009. If so, I would love to join forces and try to succesfully log the 4 caches that are out there. Should you be around that day, please drop me a note.

 

Best regards, Aart-Jan (Team Professor X)

Are there any Geocachers in Hyderabad? I see there are caches in Deli and in Agra but they are quite some distance.

 

I figured being in IT City there must be people who would be interested in geocaching.

 

I have been debating to take a flight up to Deli to get some of the caches!

 

I will be here until July 3/09 so if anyone is in the area and interested in heading north to grab some caches drop me a note!!

I was not able to get to any Geocaches while I was in Hyderabad India, they were just too far away. I did place a waymark at the Ista hotel but no one has logged it.

 

There is a reporter looking to interview Geocachers in India, would anyone be interested in talking to them? If so drop me an email and I will forward along the contact information.

 

Cheers,

@ team maple leaf; are you still in Tamil Nadu? Chennai?

 

I will be there from FEB 9-APR 29

 

this is my 2nd trip, my 1st one I wanted to Geo cache but it doesn't seem to be as popular there...i thought, and you really need to have good prep for the mission..since there is limited resources and the city is uber crazy lol :blink:

 

I am trying to eventually obtain the world cacher badge :smile: ..so I badly would love to find at least one while I am there, so any tip's... or does anyone want to go at this together!? would be much easier I feel ... :)

 

HAPPY TREASURE HUNTING :anibad:

I'll be in Goa for 3 months starting Feb 01. 2012. I'd like to get out and grab some caches while there so if anyone has a caching day planned let me know. I may need to set up a Feb 29 event just for the special day.

I sent in a request to have a Feb 29 Event at Patnem Beach. If anyone is interested let me know. It may help to show other cachers are interested in attending.

I will be visiting Bangalore and (for a weekend) Tamil Nadu soon. (Feb 26-March 7) I would be interested in meeting other Geocachers.

 

I hope to place caches near Athoor Village and near Kannivadi. I need to talk to the property owners first before I share my ideas.

See GC3DH73 and GC3DH55. Two new caches in Tamil Nadu. Both are traditional caches with international travel bugs in them, and neither has been logged yet.

Hello! A New Yorker, I'm currently in Allahabad, where I'll be for the next few years, and where the closest cache is hundreds of miles away....for now. Expect a few new ones in Allahabad to pop up in the next few months!! :-) If anyone is coming for the Maha Kumb Mela this December/January, there'll DEFinitely be some up by then (but far from the mela site as there's NO way that a geocacher would go unseen!). [well, maybe a difficulty 5 due to muggles...?]

Actually, if any of y'all ARE planning on heading to Allahabad for the Kumbh Mela this year, post something about it here...maybe there'll actually be a group of us for - gasp - a geocache event in UP?? :-)

Hello eveyone!

 

I'm visiting India for the next October.

I'm starting to planning the trip, and the geocaching tours! :)

 

I've notice that there aren't many geocaches there.

 

So, I need to know something:

 

- is it possible for me to hide some geocaches in india?

- I have a couple of friends living there, that can perform de maintenance

-if so, should I contact any indian reviewer?

- are there any laws or something that difficulties the hiding?

 

What is your advice?

 

This way, I could get one or two geocaches, increasing the Indian Geocaching activity!!

 

Please, give you opinion!

 

Thank you very much.

We recently moved to Bangalore, planning to start a monthly meet in Bangalore for the residents & a coffee meet during a Geocacher's visit to Bangalore :lol:

 

When successful would love to proceed to organize an all India meet once a year.

 

Any Geocacher up for a meet, ping us on facebook or email at welcom2india@gmail.com

There are geocachers in India. Just that not too many people know about it yet. I am new to this and was super excited to find out that there are a few geocaches hidden close by.. Would love to form an Indian Geocache community and promote geocaching in India. If anyone is interested let me know :)

Mumbai reporting. I'm new to geocaching so I'm still reading and learning about it. I'm very much interested in exploring places off the beaten path. Geocaching will add a new dimension to my travels. Looking forward to both finding and hiding caches as well as seeing the amazing places which I probably wouldn't have seen otherwise.
