Vashlovani Protected Areas
Located in the extreme southeastern corner of Georgia on the plains of the Alazani River, Vashlovani is one of the most unique and breathtaking landscapes in the South Caucasus. The park’s large swathes of arid semi-desert, with their razor-sharp limestone cliffs and groves of pistachio trees, barberry and thistle, are reminiscent of the African bush and are home to buzzards, harriers, black vultures, jackals, foxes, rabbits, wolves, lynx and porcupine. Visitors will be charmed by the gurgling Takhti-Tepa mud volcanoes, Eagle Gorge and the Kakliskure Forest. Vashlovani’s visitor center is located in the town of Dedoplistskaro, along with guesthouse accommodation options, from where it is a drive of 45 km to the park entrance. Bungalows are available to rent for the night in Vashlovani and by the river at Mijniskure.
