The cache is located at the ridge of the Ucka mountain,
at 1300m above the sea. The site itself and the views are
well worth the hike. Be sure to choose a clear day.

The location can be accessed by foot from numerous directions, partly even by car but those details you'll have to discover yourself. The hike can take you anything from 30 minutes up to 5 hours, depending on where you start from, or should we say, how good you are at climbing.

Do not hurry, be sure to check the peak itself (1396m), and take your time to stroll up/down Uckas beautiful ridge and enjoy the views of Istria, the Kvarner bay, and (on a clear day) all the way to the peaks of Slovene alps.

There are marked foot-trails leading to the top of the mountain.
The starting points: Poklon (1h20)(hotel&restaurant), Mala Ucka (40'),Lovran (4h), Medveja (5h), Moscenicka Draga (5h)

Initial contents of the cache:
- Travel bug #310243 ("The Griffon Vulture")
- a CD by Tamara Obrovac (Istrian ethno-jazz)
- a CD by "Gustafi" (Istrian folk-rock)
- a small bottle of Malvazija wine
- a small bottle of "Pelinkovac"
- a hair gel
The logbook and the pen, of course.

On our holiday in Istria we started to search for this cache on a not so clear day.
After we had found the top of the Ucka with our car we saw a very foggy hill.
Unless this weather we desided to search for the cache.
After a half hour of walking we found the cache.
On the moment we started to log the cache the weather cleared up and we had a beautifull view!

We put a sticker of our Tea-Kwondo club into the cache box.

On our holiday in Istria we have also maked a cache. I have to look on wich internet site i have to publish this cache.

Thanks for this very nice cache!!
