Geocache Description:


[LAT]  

Virsaišu ūdenskritums atrodas Talsu novadā netālu no Virsaišu mājām. Tas izveidojies Virbupes labā krasta nelielā pietekā - strauta gultne pār augšdevona dolomīta iežiem. Ūdenskritums ir 1.7 m augsts, un īpaši izteiksmīgs tas ir pavasaros un rudeņos, kad tā platums sasniedz 4 metrus. Ūdenskritumu 1998. gadā atklājis ģeogrāfs Ivars Strautnieks. Kopš 2001 gada tam ir valsts aizsargājamā ģeoloģiskā un ģeomorfoloģiskā dabas pieminekļa statuss. Latvijas Petroglifu centrs, popularizējot ģeoloģiju un ģeoloģiskos dabas pieminekļus, Virsaišu ūdenskritumu nominēja par 2010. gada ģeoloģisko objektu.

Šeit ierīkota dabas taka, kura ir marķēta ar sarkanu krāsu. Tā ir piemērota nelielam pārgājienam dabā. Ir izvietotas norāžu zīmes takas maršruta sākuma un pagriezienu vietās un stends labiekārtotā atpūtas vietā pie ūdenskrituma.

Slēpnis ir PET pudeles preforma, tā satur viesu grāmatu.
Lūdzu slēpni novietot atpakaļ tieši tā, kā tas tika atrasts!

Lūdzu, izturēties saudzīgi pret zaļo dabu.

Veiksmi!
