Dauda waterfall is located north-east of Sigulda Daudas river bed. 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 above Vidzeme highway A2 and is the left bank tributary of the River Gauja.

Dauda flows through a deep canyon type glen. The river bed hosts 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.

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.
