Lagodekhi Protected Areas


This remote, 244-sq-km nature reserve climbs to heights of over 3000m in the Caucasus above the small town of Lagodekhi in eastern Kakheti near the Azerbaijan border. The reserve features deep river valleys, alpine lakes and some of Georgia’s best-preserved forests, and is home to several hundred East Caucasian tur, red and roe deer and chamois and a few brown bears.
