Geocache Description:


 

[CZECH]
Prirodni rezervace Smrduta predstavuje jeden z nejlepe zachovanych porostu Hostynskych vrchu s geomorfologicky vyznacnymi utvary - piskovcovymi a slepencovymi skalisky a pseudokrasovymi jeskynemi na prudkem sutovem svahu vrcholu Smrduta (750 m n. m.). Vyhlaseno vynosem Ministerstvem kultury CSR ze dne 28. 9. 1975.

Na uzemi PR se nachazi prirozeny ekosystemu svahoveho sutoveho lesa v submontannim stupni, lesni spolecenstva lipovych javorin a bucin na balvanite suti a na sklanatych vychozech s karpatskou kvetenou v podrostu, geomorfologicky vyznacne skalni utvary a vzacne a chranene druhy rostlin a zivocichu.

Vrchol tvori piskovcove skaliska. Rozlisuji se zde dva typy techto utvaru: puklinove jeskyne a povrchove skalni sluje v previsech. Nejdelsi jeskyne, nazyvana Smduta, je pruchozi, dlouha 56 m, vyskovy rozdil mezi vchodem a vychodem je 12 m. V puklinove jeskyni se vytvorila snehobila sintrova poleva. V zimnich mesicich se zde mohou objevovat ledove krapniky.

Cele Hostynske vrchy jsou tvoreny piskovcovymi slepenci, ale neni vyjimkou, ze se v takoveto homogenni hmote, objevi napriklad zila kremene. Prave na finalnich souradnicich se jedna takovato zila dostala na povrch. Kremenite balvany oddelene od hlavni zily tu pusobi, mezi piskovci, velice zvlastnim dojmem.

[ENGLISH]
Nature reserve Smrduta is one of the best preserved area of Hostyn's hills and includes important geomorfological formations such as sandstone and pudding stone rocks or pseudocarst caves on the steep debris slope of Smrduta Hill (750 m above sea level). Proclaimed by decree of CSR Departmentof Culture in 1975.

On the area of PR is native ecosystem of debris-slope forest in submountain level, forest communities of lime and beechwoods on the boulder debris and on the rocky blows covered with Carpathian flora in the underwood, geomorfologicaly significant rocky formations and rare species of plants and animals.

The peak is formed by sendstone rocks. We can find here two types of these formations: fissure caves and surface caverns in the eaves.
The longest cave, named Smrduta, is transit one and its lenght is 56 meters. Height (altitude) difference between entrance and exit is 12 meters. There has been created snowwhite sinter glazing inside the fissure caves.It's possible to find some ice stalactites here in the winter time.
