The surface area of the lake covers 1 hectare, and its depth reaches 5 meters. Its fresh and clear water does not flow out of the lake, which is mainly fed by snow, rain, and groundwater.
You can reach the lake from Abastumani, the village of Dertseli, or Persati Plateau. If you are driving, the Dertseli summer farms or Persati Plateau routes are preferrable as these are much shorter than the Abastumani alternative.
The Abastumani Observatory can also be reached fairly easily using any vehicle. You can then continue along the path leading to the ridge from which gorgeous views can be savored all around, making it difficult to reach Jaji Lake by the scheduled time!
The lake borders three municipalities: Adigeni, Chokhatauri, and Vani. It is reflecting the Mepistskaro Mountain, towering at 2,850 meters. From this altitude, you can enjoy the panoramas of Imereti, Guria, and Samtskhe-Javakheti regions.
Trekking season for Jaji Lake starts from the second half of May.
