The highest point in the ravine is 11.5 meters/~34 feet. A small triangular cave has formed in the rock wall. The high vertical walls are covered with visitors' names, dates and random drawings.

A small triangle shaped cave, about 5 meters/15 feet deep, has formed in the wall. There is an old story about Raven's ravine.

 

In the old days there was a very kind “vagars” - a supervisor of serfs. He treated the serfs with dignity and would even defend them in the face of a baron. For this reason, the barons could not stand him and threw him down in the ravine. So the man disappeared and people could not find him until they saw a flock of ravens flying over the ravine. Then they descended down and found the body of the poor man and ever since then this ravine has been called Raven's ravine. Please, remember that all caves are located in the territory of the Gauja National Park, and please respect the ancient geological nature monuments that keep the history of land formation!
