Beschreibung    English

A multi-cache in the area of the Dragoman marsh and the Chepan mountain.

Chepan is a small karst mountain, part of the Balkan mountain range. The town of Dragoman and the marsh of the same name are situated at its foot. The highest peak is Petrov krast (Peter's cross), elevation 1205 m.

The Dragoman marsh is the biggest karst marsh in Bulgaria. Its elevation is 710 m and its area is 200 ha. It is part of the Via Aristotelis bird migration route. The marsh harbors 140 plant, 1 fish, 7 amphibian, 10 lizard, 16 mammal and 180 bird species.
Back in mid-20-th century the marsh was converted to farming land. A pump station was built right next to it to drain the water. However, this enterprise proved to be inefficient and was abandoned. The marsh quickly regained its original state. The remnants of the pump station and the irrigation canals can still be seen today.

There has been a wildfire in the marsh and the neighbouring mountain slope on 29.05.2013. So we went to check whether the cache has been affected on 6.07.2013. It was missing in its entirety. Whether as a result of the fire or just an ordinary muggling - we don't know.

Velislav, I want to apologize to you - if I had archived the cache as soon as we knew about its absence then you might have learnt in advance. Anyway, we hope you enjoyed the view.

My colleague Dinko and me visited the cache today and resupplied it with brochures and postcards about the marsh and the mountain.
