Bahrain Caches

Recommended Posts

Hello:

 

I will be in Bahrain in a couple days (staying 2 days, off to KSR for 2 days, then back in Bahrain for 2 days). Will eb at the Ramada Building 88 Road 351 Block 326, Adliya Bani Otbah Ave, Manama. Probably won't have free access to a vehicle unless I can educate and convince a co-worker to go caching. I do run a lot (marathons and ultramarathons) so don't mind an early morning run. For the locals, what is/are the best caches that I should target? By best, I mean ease of access by foot? It appears to me that there may only be one (Walk along the Cornice) that is relatively close, but I may be looking at the map wrong. At a minimum, would love to get at least one Bahrain cache to add to our country count, but would welcome as many as I can get.

 

Thanks

Hi I have done 3 caches in Bahrain and although one of them which would have been on your doorstep has now been temporarily disabled,the other two I have walked too from close to your location GC18J1F and GC194FB, these should be within your striking distance. If you intend to do the later one dont make my mistake and walk all the way around the USA base, instead head towards the main gate for the base and then turn left just before it and follow the base wall keeping it to your left. Then across the wasteground heading towards the bridge which should now be in sight. This takes at least 1.5 miles of the trip. The other cache in the grounds of the old mosque is only available during certain times when the site is open. Im afraid I cant recall when this is, however when i went it was closed and the key holder came and let me in. If i can be of any further help PM me.

 

Regards

Thanks for all the suggestions. Overall, I think the trip was pretty successful. First, I managed to help re-activate and find the cache near the hotel (GC2BRAT - Al Fateh, The Gulf and the Palace). I did a morning run to GC194FB (Arches and Pearls) but a police boat stopped me from searching at GZ (those front mounted machine guns are very persuasive). GlobalMedic was kind enough to take me out one day and I bagged three (Equestrian Challenge, Fooled You, and Fueling next year's Grand Prix - the later being an earthcache - giving me earthcache finds in the US, Germany, the UK and Bahrain). Then my last day there, a co-worker and I found Oil Well #1 (GCRQMQ). So that gave me 5 smilies and 1 DNF. Finally, I managed to get a local cacher to agree to support a hide, so I just had published my first and only hide in Bahrain! GC2Q3VD I also managed to get 2 caches in KSA while there.
