Kulbaki, located about an hour’s drive from Kutaisi, is a beautiful village shrouded in greenery and rugged mountains, the ideal place to get away from the urban environment. The village is located in the Lechkhumi area, famed for its unspoiled wilderness, mysterious Khvamli mountain and abundance of beautiful waterfalls.
Kulbaki is perhaps best known for its lakes: Green Lake and Babushkino Lake. These two lakes are separated by just three hundred metres. While Babushkino Lake is shallower and has been known to dry out, Green Lake deserves further explanation.
Some years ago, there was only marshland where Green Lake is now. A local farmer, Kakha Gasviani, who loved nature and fishing, decided to turn those hobbies into an agrobusiness. He dammed a lake onto the marshland, set up a trout farm, and built a restaurant and hotel.
These days Green Lake of Kulbaki is well-loved by tourists. Here you ride a horse up the mountain or take a boat onto the lake, and if you love fishing, you can catch, clean, and cook your very own delicious trout.
