Geocache Description:

[LV]: Slepnis ir lock-and-lock 2l kastite, pakarta koka dobuma.

[ENG]: Skadulu cliff is part of Svikupites river valley sandstone reveals. Cache itself is a large 2l lock-and-lock box, hanging in the tree hole.

[ENG]
Svikupite walley is monument of nature. Protected from human intervention, forrest cutting etc. Please leave your car on the road and continue your journey near the river. Cache is approx 1km from the road and it will take approx 1h to reach the cache location.

Svitkupite river is a small stream, 1...2m wide and it runs for 5km before falling into river Gauja. In the last 3km, Svitkupite flows through Nurmizi Nature Reserve. Entrance into Nature reserve is strictly prohibited!

Cache is hidden near Skadulu cliff - a magnificent 14m high, 35m wide sandstone detrition on the left bank of the Svikupite. It is well preserved, with very limited writings on it. Cache is located (hanged) in the old linden tree on slope on the right side of the river, approximately 30...40m high from the river bank. Please look into SPOLER pic for better spotting the correct place. Nurmizi Nature reserve begins near the cache to the west from it. Please do not enter Nature reserve!

GPS coordinates are with 15m accuracy, due to the terrain. There are 3 holes in the tree - 1 from the top, 1 from the river side, and 1 from north side. Hole from the river side is additionally specially covered with old wood, so that cache cannot be accidentally spotted by muglers. Due to cache dimentions, it is possible only to remove cache through the hole from the river side. Please do not touch anything from top - there are things covering top hole otherwise rain will get into the wood and may destroy something. Please carefully put everything back, when you have done your "cache logging ritual" :) Please make sure cache cannot be spotted - put the old wood back as original to cover it.

[LV]
Svikupite ieleja ir dabas piemeneklis. Ludzu atstajiet savu auto uz Siguldas-Nurmižu cela un turpiniet savu celu, gar Svikupiti. Slepnis atrodas aptuveni 1km no cela un prasis aptuveni 1h, lai sasniegtu ta atrašanas vietu. Citi piekluves maršruti nav ieteicami, jo visapkart ir privatipašumi un saimnieki nav priecigi, par laudim, kas nobrada vinu laukus!

Svitkupite ir 1 ... 2 m plata un tas garums ir ap 5km pirms ta ietek Gauja. Pedejos 3km Svitkupite tek cauri Nurmižu Gravu Dabas Rezervatam. Ieeja rezervata ir stingri aizliegta!

Slepnis atrodas netalu no Skadulu ieža - tas ir lielisks 14m augsts, 35m plats smilšakmens atsegums Svitkupites kreisaja krasta. Atsegums ir labi saglabajies, ar minimalu skaitu gravejumiem uz ta. Pats slepnis atrodas upes labas puses nogaze augoša veca liepas koka, kas aug aptuveni 30 ... 40 m augšup (pa vertikali) no krasta. Ludzu skatit SPOLER pic, lai labak atpazitu isto koku. Nurmižu Gravu Dabas Rezervats sakas netalu no, pardesmit metrus no slepna uz rietumiem (lejup pa upiti) - ludzu neieejiet rezervata teritorija!

Ipaša reljefa del, koordinatas noteiktas ar 15m precizitati. Liepas koka 3 caurumi - 1 no augšas, 1 no upes puses, un 1 un no ziemelu puses. Caurums no upes puses ir speciali papildus ipaši aizkats ar koka mizu ta, lai slepnis nejauši nekrit acis nejaušiem magleriem. Konteiners ir iekarts uz akiša. Sakara ar slepna izmeriem, konteineru ir iespejams iznemt tikai no upes puses cauruma. Ipašs lugums - caurums no augšas ir speciali apklats ta, lai tur nelitu iekša udens, kas var slepna vietu pabojat. Ludzu nejauciet no augšas neko.

Kad esat beiguši savu "slepna logošanas ritualu", safotografejušies utml :), ludzu sakartojiet visu sakotneja izskata un ipaši pielukojiet, lai no upes puses konteiners nav redzams!

Priecajieties par Latvijas skaisto dabu! Nebojajiet klintis!
