Dauda waterfall ****
2,6 M HIGH, BEAUTIFUL WATERFALL
Height: 2,3 - 2,6 m. Waterfall is divided by two cascades
- the upper is 0,5 m, lower - 1,8 m high.
Easy - there are signs (rather small) showing the way to the waterfall.
Access road is not very suitable for low cars. You can have a 0,5 km long
walk to the falls - it is worth going there!
Riga district, Sigulda municipality (not town), to the north-east from Sigulda
town. Upper reaches of Dauda river. One should turn to the left at the sign
when driving from Sigulda to Nurmizi village.
The most significant waterfall in Gauja National Park - although Ierikupite
falls are good competitors.
Water falls over sandstones. The upper part of sandstone contains much
dolostone, and is more hardy - this causes the waterfall to form.
