Going on a treasure hunt

Searching a "treasure" at a lovely lake

sunny 9 °C

This day we combined a hike with a treasure hunt.

The "treasure hunt" goes like this:
Some people have hidden a small box at some secret place and published its GPS coordinates in the internet. Other people can try to go to this place and hopefully find the treasure.


This treasure was hidden near Altausseer See, a nice like in the south of the Salzkammergut region.


Most of our path was just beside the lake.



Small rock climbed, big rock to the back.


Close to the hiding place of the treasure.
We took some rest at this lovely place.


Later we searched for an hour and it was nearly getting dark when we finally reached this place.


Is there something?


There it is!


The "treasure" consists of a box with a log-book and a few small items inside.

If you found the treasure you can take one of the items and keep it, and place another item in there for exchange.


Writing down our names in the log-book.


As the sun had went down just at the moment when we finally had found the treasure, we had to go back in the dark. Scary!
