Geocache Description:


LV Daudziem Ziepniekkalns noteikti asociējas ar "Ķīnas mūri"-garāko dzīvojamo ēku Rīgā. Taču Ziepniekkalnam ir daudz senāka un skaistāka vēsture par briesmīgo 70.-80.gadu apbūves laiku. Pašā rajona centrā atrodas Ēbeļmuižas parks, kas ir ievērojams ar izcilajiem ozoliem – to skaitā resnāko ozolu Pārdaugavā.

Ozola apkārtmērs - 5,60 m, vecums - ap 300 gadu. Lai gan tas pamatīgi apstrādāts ar metāla loksnēm un vētrās zaudējis vairākus lielus zarus, tomēr vēl kuplo un zaļo. Beidzamie mērījumi gan liecina, ka cīņā par Pārdaugavas resnākā ozola titulu šo koku drīz vien varētu apsteigt Bišumuižas ozols.

Pats slēpnis atrodas mazliet nostāk, no šīs vietas paveras jauks skats uz šo un vēl vienu netālu esošu dižozolu.

ENG Many would definitely associate Ziepniekkalns with the "Wall of China" - longest residential building in Riga. But the history of Ziepniekkalns is much older and more beautiful than the terrible buildings of 70 - 80s. In the middle of the district yiou will find Ebelmuiza Park, which is remarkable because of the outstanding oak trees - including the thickest oak Pardaugava .

Girth of the oak - 5,60 m , age - about 300 years . Although it is thoroughly treated with metal sheets and has lost several large branches during storms, it still greens. However, the last measurements show that Bisumuiza oak tree could soon overtake the title of the thickest oak tree of Pardaugava. The cache itself is located a bit away from the tree, where you can have a lovely view of this and another oak nearby.
