Machakhela National Park

Georgia

The newest park to be supported by CNF (beginning 2020) Machakhela National Park is located 30 km away from Batumi in the foothills of the Lesser Caucasus. Close to the Turkish border, Machakhela expands the protection of the unique ecosystems of the Colchic forests – rich tropical and sub-tropical habitats (temperate rain forests with peat bogs) which contain unrivaled biodiversity, and are rich in relics of the tertiary period: Colchic bot box, chestnut, nut, hazel-nut, and bot trees abound. Trails are being developed and since this park has only been recently established, you can still be one of the first to witness its wet beauty.
