Two rehabilitation centers in Vidzeme Region were examined: the rehabilitation centre Ligatne located in a beautiful place in the territory of Gauja National Park, and the rehabilitation center Krimulda set up in Krimulda Manor house, on the right bank of the picturesque River Gauja.
Another cave was an over 50 m long man-made sandstone gallery in Ligatne village, called Remdenkalna cave, and the last one was a 60 m long dolomite cave (called 'Siksparnu' or 'Bat' cave), which probably is a former underground mine.

The scope of this study includes the investigation of the spatial distribution of landslides and gullies in the Gauja River valley between Sigulda and Ligatne and determination of their related factors.
