It is easy to feel as if you’ve been transported to another world as you explore the mist-shrouded Colchic forests, whether on foot, on horseback, or as part of a scientific tour. The lake and Tsablnari Waterfall are some of the more eye-catching sights within this primordial forest, but you’ll be amazed by the park’s beauty at every step.
Hikers can undertake a 1-2-day hike in Mtirala National Park. The paths are marked and well-equipped with picnic and camping areas. If you follow the two-day trail, you will also find a tourist shelter where you can stay for the night. There is a strict rule that you can only light a fire in designated areas, so plan your hike accordingly.
The park is just thirty kilometres from Batumi, and the top of the mountain reaches 1,761 meters above sea level. If you’re lucky enough to be on the summit on one of the rare clear days, you’ll be afforded a stunning view of the Black Sea. You can reach the park by minibus, a taxi, or by car.
