Geocache Description:

LV Slēpnis pie svētavota iztekas

EN Cache near sacred spring source


LV Avota ūdenim tiek piedēvētas dziednieciskas īpašības, arī nostāsti liecina par to, ka avotam ziedots, turklāt šis nav vienīgais avots apkārtnē ar līdzīgām īpašībām. Apkārtnē ap Vaidavas ezeru koncentrēti vairāki objekti: Vaidavas pilskalns (viena no iespējamām Beverīnas pils vietām), Vaivadas pilskalna jeb Briņķu sila bļodakmens, avots pie pilskalna un citi. Gaujas Nacionālā Parka lieguma zona, Natura2000 .

„Apmēram pusotru kilometru no Metemnas uz dienvidiem, pa Vaidavas ezera krastu uz leju, un nonākam pie ūdens izgrauztas, priedēm apaugušas platas slīpuma gravas, kur pat iebraukts meža ceļš ved lejā uz ezeru. Pēc gājiena pa gravu nonākam pie ar lēsu apauguša avota, no kura bez apstājas tek auksts, dzidra ūdens strautiņš, kas ietek Vaidavas ezerā. Šo strautiņa izcelšanās vietu tautā sauc par Veselības avotu. Pie šā avota un strautiņa mūsu senči, vairāku dūmu rijās dzīvojošo dūmu sabojāto acu dēļ, gāja pēc veselības ūdens. Strautiņā vai avotā nomazgājušies, iedzēruši, sasmēluši kādā traukā līdznešanai uz māju, strautiņā vai avota iemeta zieda naudu kā samaksu Ūdensmātei. (K. Bukums. Sast. I. Ruberte. Valmieras novada teikas. 1999)

EN Healing properties are attributed to the spring water, also tales narrate that they used to sacrifice to the spring; besides this is not the only spring in the surroundings with similar properties. In the surroundings around the Vaidava Lake, there are several objects: Vaidava Hill Fort (one of the probable sites of the Beverīna Castle), the Hollow Stone of the Vaivada Hill Fort or Briņķi Pine Forest Hollow Stone, the spring at the hill fort and other. Gauja National Park's Reserve Area, territory of Natura2000.

"About one and a half kilometer of Metemna in south direction, along the bank of the Vaidava Lake downwards, we come to a wide sloping ravine eroded by water and overgrown with pines where even a forest road leads down to the lake. After a walk along the ravine we come to a spring overgrown with pine forest, from which a brook of cold and clear water flows without interruption further to the Vaidava Lake. This brook's outlet is called by people the Health Spring. At this spring and brook our ancestors used to go for health water to treat their eyes spoiled while dwelling in smoked threshing barns. Having washed themselves in the spring or brook, drunk its water, taken some water along in bowls, they threw some sacrificing money into the spring as payment to the Water Mother (Ūdensmāte). (K. Bukums. Compiled by I. Ruberte. Valmiera County Tales (Valmieras novada teikas). 1999)"About one and a half kilometer of Metemna in south direction, along the bank of the Vaidava Lake downwards, we come to a wide sloping ravine eroded by water and overgrown with pines where even a forest road leads down to the lake.
