Valdati Waterfall is a fairly large waterfall by Latvian standards. When the level of water in the Īvande River is low, its height is 1.7 m, but at high water, it is some 1.4 m high. For the most part of the year, the stream in it is just a few meters wide, but at high water, it is up to 6.5 m wide. The force of the water has formed a depth under it.
Waterfall has formed on the Middle Devonian dolostone of Pļaviņas Stage.
This is the first waterfall on the Īvande River. With these falls starts a shallow, picturesque canyon, where after some 90 m is an artificial waterfall over boulders and then, some 180 m from Valdati Waterfall is Ivande Waterfall – a larger and more impressive waterfall.
Next to the falls, to the west, are the buildings of Renda pastor manorhouse. This complex of simple wooden buildings was built in the late 18th – early 19th century. Unfortunately, buildings are in a dire state.
