Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park
Located in the heart of the Lesser Caucasus mountain range, Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park comprises more than 1% of the total territory of Georgia. Its thickly-forested mountain gorges and alpine meadows are home to a staggering variety of endemic flora (chestnut, oak and yew) and fauna (wolves, bears, lynx, griffon vultures, golden eagles and one hundred species of butterfly). A well-developed network of marked trails allows visitors to explore the park’s stunning scenery independently or with a guide. Highlights include an overnight stay in the tourist shelter at Lomismta (‘Lion’s Mountain’), with its Church of Saint George and – in good weather – views of the snow-capped peaks of the Greater Caucasus. Other attractions include the atmospheric Green Monastery, and the world-famous resort town of Borjomi, with its curative mineral springs.
