Bangalore is India's "Silicon Valley" & I hope that technology implies a few locals might have GPSRs. This NaviCache is just off Mahatma Gandhi Rd., not far from the westernized Brigade Rd. where you'll find pubs, Net cafes, fast food (no beef), touts, pickpockets, and stylish women dressed in something other than the ubiquitous saree or salwar kameez. I hid the plastic box on top of an estate wall, under some flowering vine.

We have not implemented maps outside of the U.S.A. ... YET!

Additional maps for this cache available at: topozone.com logo    mapquest.com logo

I snickered when marking the radio buttons for Water (India has millions of street vendors), Restrooms (people "go" anywhere), and Pets (dogs run in packs).

Initially in the plastic box:
mini flashlight
masala mix cassette tape
2 x AA batteries
colored pens
Eet & Ern Silver Card from cornflakes box
comb, matches, tissue (from Central Park hotel)
log book & pen

Make sure nobody is watching you hunt, swap an equal value gift & post your trade/adventure on this website.

Roomed around this location, but reception was bad due to the trees around. There are allways people around, which makes impossible for a "foreigner" to search around in the dirt.
Anyway, thanks for this none.

I can't see this Bangalore NaviCache from my hotel room in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada ;^)

Over the last 2 years, I've placed 6 NaviCaches in India and you might be the first persons to actually visit any waypoint. We visitors to India have to keep this game going, LOL. Considering the lack of India cachers, I'll come right out and say that the plastic NaviCache box was right on top of the concrete wall, pretty high over 2m, not easily seen. It might have become victim to India's National Dilemma: "flicking" aka stealing. As usual, I had included a note in the box, explaining the game, asking finders not to spoil the game for others. I had to write the note in english, so that might invalidate any reasonable behavior.

I started on GeoCaching.com, but got tired of the message board bickering. When site owner Jeremy evolved to the point of wanting to own the word "geocache" and all data that individual cachers entered on the site relating to individual experiences, I switched to the friendlier http://NaviCache.com

Waah! On my trip to India, I was visiting a friend in Bangalore for a couple of days and she was quite excited about being introduced to Geocaching. We searched high and low without any success. Is the cache still there?

P.S. Maybe you should upload your cache at www.geocaching.com .

I can't see this Bangalore NaviCache from my house in Chennai ;^)

The NaviCache.com Forum has some additional clues on this NaviCache. I had to place the India topic under Australia ;^(

You haven't made your email addy visible in your NaviCache Profile, so let me ask you:
1) what GPSr do you have, why, & how did you come to NaviCaching?
2) are there others in India with a GPSr & do you see the game growing? Or will the boxes just get ripped off?
