Geocaches for the True Adventurer

Brought to you by Pacifico

In case you're not familiar with the increasingly popular outdoor activity known as "geocaching," prepare to have your mind blown. In geocaching, participants use GPS and other navigational devices to hide and seek "treasure chests" called geocaches anywhere in the world. This modern day Indiana Jones activity allows a person to sign a logbook within the cache as proof that they actually made the journey, and also to trade "treasures" inside the chest.

Check out below some of the most adventurous geocaches for the bravest of the brave. When done, head over to discoverpacifico.com to explore more off-the-beaten-path destinations thanks to GPS coordinates found under every Pacifico beer bottle cap.

International Space Station

We would argue that this is the most remote location of all geocaches in existence. In 2008, a private 'space tourist' named Richard Garriott left a geocache in locker #218 of the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS). With the ISS constantly floating about 250 miles above the earth, this cache is essentially moving at nearly 17,000 miles per hour as it circles the earth, which is fast enough to complete an orbit every 90 minutes!

Mount Everest Summit

Mount Everest Summit

This geocache exists for the most skilled mountaineers. Set on top of the tallest mountain range in the world, this geocache is close to 30,000 feet about sea level. To locate this geocache involves braving fierce winds, spasmodic weather condition changes, and extreme altitude.

The Leap

The Leap

You pretty much have to be Indiana Jones' soul sister or brother to find The Leap geocache. Located in Arizona, The Leap requires an incredible set of feats; steep hills, numerous drop-offs and cliffs, gigantic boulders and formidable terrain. The last few feet to the geocache demand a Super Mario Bros video game skill; jumping four to five feet leaps from rock to rock. Misjudging leaps means falling a very deadly plummet of over 100+ feet to the bottom.

Registan Desert

Registan Desert

The Registan Desert Earth Cache is found right in the middle of Afghanistan. The dry and treacherous desert can be discouraging, but according to Geocaching.com, over 35 people have visited and logged the cache here!

The Secret Falls of Kimbuma

Secret Falls of Kimbuma

The Secret Falls of Kimbuma cache is located in one of the most underdeveloped and dangerous countries on the planet. Fearless souls must cross the treacherous Wamba River and endure a perilous hike across risky jungle terrain. On top of that, very few people outside of the Democratic Republic of Congo actually speak local languages, making the journey even that much more inconceivable.

Now that you're well-versed in geocaching, grab a Pacifico Beer and use the GPS coordinates under the bottle cap to explore some more accessible, incredible locations at discoverpacifico.com.
