Daudu waterfall
Daudu waterfall

The third biggest waterfall in Latvia. Height - 2,4 m, width - 1,5 - 2,5 m. Dauda or Lākturu River (upper reaches called Jurbrenčupīte, Ķillupīte - Liv's old name) starts in Sigulda parish Nurmizi glen reserve area and is the left bank tributary of the River Gauja.

 

A unique geological object and one of the largest Latvian karst sinkholes' systems. Protected area in the 60ha area with earth sinkholes (approximately 1-6 m depth, 3-10 m in diameter), formed in areas where groundwater has washed out gypsum, creating voids in underground layers. In the karst processes the ravines, funnel shape sinkholes and two lakes were formed - Vecezers and Linezers, where irregular water level fluctuations have been observed. Linezers sometimes behaves quite strange - water partially or completely flows underground. Over the last decades, it has been observed that in Linezers, through about 9m deep funnel's water swallower, the water disappears partly or completely.

Most of the Dauda river flow is included in the Gauja National Park Nurmiži ravine reserve area, which can only be visited for scientific research purposes with the special permission of the Nature Protection Board. Dauda or Lākturu river (in the upper course called Jurbrenčupīte, Ķillupīte - an old Livonian name) begins in Sigulda parish, Nurmiži ravine reserve zone and is the left tributary of Gauja river left bank. Dauda river flows along deep canyon-shaped ravine. In the river bed there are several waterfalls. Driving along the road which leads from Sigulda to Nurmiži you have to take left. A small sign indicates the way to the waterfall. Until the waterfall you have to go on foot about half a kilometre.
