Geocache Description:


[LAT]

Vietas apraksts:
Kārļu vecā hidroelektrostacija, kas apgādāja ar elektrību Cēsu pilsētu un apkārtni, tika atklāta 1927.gadā bijušo Kārļa muižas ūdensdzirnavu vietā. Te 19.gadsimtā bijusi zāģētava un šindeļu fabrika, kam enerģiju deva ūdens turbīna. Kārļu HES darbojās līdz 1963.gadam.
Elektroenerģijas ražošana Kārļos uz Amatas upes atsākta 2002.gada martā jaunizbūvētajā Kārļu aizsprosta HES, kas kā augstceltne izvietojusies starp upes gultni un baseinu - kāpņu tipa zivju ceļu, kas ir viens no dažiem Latvijā un tā darbību dabā pierādījuši migrējošie taimiņi, laši un foreles.

Slēpņa apraksts:
Slēpnis ir PET pudeles sagatave ar kamuflāžu, tajā iekšā ir viesu grāmata un zīmulis (bet drošības labad paņemiet līdzi savu, jo visādi mēdz gadīties).
Koordinātes var būt neprecīzas apvidus reljefa un koku dēļ.
LŪDZAM NOLIKT SLĒPNI ATPAKAĻ TURPAT, KUR TAS TIKA ATRASTS!!!!

Iesakām apmeklēt šo slēpni un „AMATA TRAIL” slēpņu sēriju viena pārgājiena laikā.


[ENG]

The Location:

Old Karlu hydroelectric power station that produced electricity for Cesis and it's surrounding villages was opened in 1927 in place where old Karlu manor sawmill used to be. Hydroelectric power station was working till 1963.
Production of electricity was renewed in March 2002 when a new power station building was constructed. Interesting is stair-like fish-pass that allows for fish to migrate - there are only a few like these in Latvia.

The Cache:
The cache is PET bottle with camouflage that contains logbook and a pencil.
Coordinates might be imprecise due to terrain elevations and trees.
PLEASE PUT THE CACHE BACK EXACTLY AS YOU FOUND IT!!!

We recommend to visit this caches together with „AMATA TRAIL” cache series during one hiking trip.
