Paravani Lake - Perfect for Fishing

Paravani Lake - Perfect for Fishing

Paravani Lake is the largest lake in Georgia in terms of water surface area. It is located in Samtskhe-Javakheti region, 2,073 meters above sea level, and is frozen all winter. The thickness of the ice cover reaches 50 to 70 cm and when frozen the lake is a particularly amazing sight, resembling a white desert.

Summer, meanwhile, is the camping season here with many excellent spots. If you also like fishing, Paravani Lake is a wonderland, home to nipple-lip scraper (Capoeta sieboldii), salmon (Salmo faria Linne), rutilus, common carp (Cyprinus carpio), and vendace (Coregonus albula).

In spring, the fishing season begins in April, when the thick ice begins to melt, and people fish here for the rest of the year until the lake freezes, usually in December.

Despite the large surface area, the maximum depth of the lake is only 3.3 meters, while its water takes on different colors at different times depending on the weather conditions.

Paravani River originates from the southern part of the lake, which then joins the Mtkvari River.

There are also six villages around Paravani Lake: Paravani, Aspara, Vladimirovka, Tambovka, Akhali Khulgumo, and Poka.
