The Dyburiai Exposure, seen on the shore of Minija tells the history of the Earth counting thousands of years – when one moving glaciers melted, and others formed in their place. On the high slope of Dyburiai Exposure, the deposits of three different glaciers and layers of rock laid by the glacier can be observed.
Just like a yearbook, they tell about the processes that took place in the nature forming this picturesque landscape.
The exposure, having been recognised as the Lithuanian natural heritage object, is 30 metres wide and 33 meters height. Having conquered them, a magnificent landscape appears – Minija river, which is magnificent here: along the Dyburiai, the Minija river makes a giant loop – on the narrowest place of the river, there is a dry land of only a 100 metres. Having turned, the river twists like crazy for four more kilometres.
When swimming in a kayak or a boat, the eye is caught by the steep shores uncovering the high exposures.
You’ll find the Dyburiai Exposure in the Dyburiai village, district of Plungė, at the Salantai Regional Park, on the left shore of the Minija river.
