Geocache Description:

[LV] Gaiziņkalns (Gaiziņš) ir augstākais reljefa punkts Latvijā.

[EN] Gaizinkalns is the highest relief point in Latvia.


[LV] Tas sasniedz 311,9 metru augstumu virs jūras līmeņa. Tas atrodas Vidzemes Centrālajā augstienē, Madonas novada Bērzaunes pagastā (apmēram 20 km uz rietumiem no Madonas). No tā virsotnes paveras lielisks skats uz Vidzemes mežiem un ūdeņiem. Gaiziņkalns un apkārtējie pauguri ir ar stāvām nogāzēm, kas noaugušas ar mežu.
Gaiziņkalns ir populāra ziemas sporta veidu cienītāju atpūtas vieta - jo īpaši tādēļ, ka biezā sniega sega dažreiz te saglabājas līdz pat aprīļa mēnesim.
Jau kopš 20. gs. 20. - 30. gadiem sportisti no ziemas sezonas Gaiziņkalnā atvadās ar tradicionālo slēpotāju karnevālu.

[EN] In total Gaizinkalns is 311,9 meters high above the see level. It's located in Vidzeme Central upland, approx. 20 km West of Madona town, in Berzaune parish. From the top of Gaizinkalns you can see beautiful sight of woods, rivers and lakes of Vidzeme. Slopes of Gaizinkalns and hills around are steep and vegetated with woods.
Gaizinkalns is very popular among winter sports fans because that here you can still sometimes find a snow even in April.

[LV] Gaiziņkalna apkārtnē ir izvietots Gaiziņkalna dabas parks, kas sākotnēji dibināts 1987. gada 1500 ha platībā.
