Treasure Hunt IV - Aug 9-10

We are excited to bring you the 4th edition of CTC's Treasure Hunt. Continuing a 3 year tradition we are calling out again to the fittest trekkers and most experienced navigators out there to take up this grand outdoor challenge. Participating teams will have to search for hidden clues and decode mysterious riddles in order to create a treasure map which will lead them deep inside the mountains in search for the treasure and glory!

STEP 1 - Team Formation Members interested to participate should form a 4-member team before signing up. At least 2 team members should be very experienced trekkers possessing map reading and navigation skills. All team members Team members should have a good fitness level and have successfully completed at least a few moderate or difficult treks. Each team needs to identify a unique name and symbol for their team.

STEP 2 - Registration Once you have formed a team which satisfies the above entrance criteria and confirmed availability for this weekend you can go ahead and register your team. The organizers will be scrutinizing your submission and either accept or reject based on their discretion.

STEP 3 - Treasure hunt Teams will carry a topographic map and have figure out their own trails to find clues hidden inside the forest in the mountains. A series of connected clues will eventually lead to the treasure location. Each clue will be indicated through an approximate location (latitude, longitude) along with an encoded riddle to identify the exact position of the clue.

All members of a given team have to visit the location of every clue along their way to the final treasure point. The speed of the team will be determined by the slowest member. The team which reaches first (including all of its members) at the treasure point wins the hunt.
