[ENG] The average depth of Lake Alauksts is 3.3 metres, the maximum – 7 metres. Lake Alauksts has two islands – The Big Island (0.8 ha) and The Small Island (also Vidsniedre) (0.76 ha). The former effluent Gaujina has silted; however, nowadays Lake Alauksts has an effluent Silakroga ditch that was shaped as the ditch to Lake Tauna on 19th century. A considerable amount of potentially toxic blue algaes are in the lake.

The cache ( a 0.2 litre jar in a pouch) contains a logbook, three color pencils (blue, green, orange), pencil sharpener, total A4 geocachers drawing and some GC's. coordiantes are not super-precise. rely on hint!

In case you do not have a boat yourself, there is a possibility to hire a rowing-boat in camping “Niedrites”, which is the nearest place. We did it ourselves. It will take approximately 3 hours to find both caches and manage the distance between the islands and land.

Rainboots are recommended!!

PS. For the first geocatchers – if possible, please take some packets against humidity and place them in the caches. Thank you!
