Lielākā karsta kriteņu sistēma Latvijā. Kritenes veidojušās, gruntsūdenim šķīdinot Salaspils svītas ģipšakmeņus, veidojot pazemes tukšumus un vēlāk tiem iegrūstot.
Vecumnieku mežistrādes iecirknī, starp Kurmenes ceļu un Mēmeles krastu.

Largest system of sinkholes in Latvia. Groundwater has dissolved rock gypsum of Salaspils member deposits (Devonian period). As a result large voids have formed and subsequently caved in.
In Vecumnieki forestry, between Kurmene road and bank of Memele.
