Geocache Description:

LAT: Slepnis ir novietots netalu no Ventas Rumbas, Kuldiga, Ventas kreisaja krasta, 150 m augšpus Veca kiegelu tilta. ENG: Cache are hidden near Ventas Rumba, in Kuldiga, on the left bank of the river Venta, 150 m upstreams from the Old brick bridge.

LAT: Ventas Rumba ir pec caurteces un platuma lielakais Latvijas udenskritums, ka ari platakais udenskritums Eiropa (249 m). Rumbas augstums ir 1,8 - 2,2 metri - precizi neviens nepateiks, jo tas atškiras dažadas vietas un gadalaikos.
Venta te “izedusies” caur augšdevona Salaspils svitas mergelainajiem un malainajiem nogulumiem, sasniedzot Plavinu svitas augšejas pasvitas (Riežupes slanu) cietos dolomitus. Šo dolomitu slanis veido udenskritumu. Zem Riežupes slaniem atrodas sikgraudaini, platnaini dolomiti, kuros ir mala un smilšakmens starpslaniši. Tie nav izturigi un kritošais udens tos pakapeniski izskalo. Tapec Ventas rumba pakapeniski parvietojas augšup pa Ventu.
Udenskrituma pargazei interesanta liklocu forma. Bez galvenas pargazes zemak ir vel daži mazaki slieksniši.
Zivju zveja: Pargaze ir iecirstas daudzas teknes, kas izmantotas zivju keršanai. Pec nostastiem, hercogs Jekabs 1640. gada izgudrojis vienigo ierici Eiropa, kas zivis kera gaisa. Pie šim teknem tika novietoti 40 trijkaji ar groziem. Pret straumi ejošie laši, stores un vimbas pargazei lekuši pari. Ja leciens bijis neveiksmigs, udens zivi atmetis atpakal un ta iekritusi groza. Storu tagad Venta vairs nav (vel 1892. gada Rumba nokerta 48 kg smaga store), bet vimbu lecienus pavasari vel var noverot.

Konteiners ir maza lock-lock karba (12x12cm), kura atrodas viesu gramata un zimulis.

ENG: Ventas Rumba is the largest waterfall in Latvia by width and flow, and widest rapid in Europe – 249 metres (817 ft) and up to 270 metres (886 ft) during spring floods. Its height is 1.80–2.20 metres (5.9–7.2 ft) and it changes depending on the water level in the river. Waterfall is “retreating” upstreams slowly.
Fishing: In the spillway there have been cut many channels - these were used to catch the fish. According to legends in 17th century here was invented unique device for catching the fish in air. At those channels there were placed some 40 tripods with baskets. Salmon, sturgeon and vimba going against the stream here jumped over the spillway. If the jump was not successful, power of water brought the fish back and it fell in the basket. Sturgeon is extinct since the end of 1892, but in spring time one can enjoy the jumps of numerous vimba.

Container is small lock-lock box (12x12cm) and contains logbook and pencil.
