The Shaori reservoir is the largest resevoir in Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti, holding 90 million cubic meters of water. Built in the 1950s at 1,100-1,200 meteres above sea level, the reservoir is 7.1 kilometers long, 14.5 meters deep, and 2.7 kilometers at its widest point. The reservoir is named after the Shaori river, which supplies it with water.
You can visit it any season. The densely forested Nakerala Range surrounds Shaori. The lake is particularly beautiful in autumn when the cerulean waters reflects the yellow, purple, and orange colors of the forest.
Shaori surroundings are a great place to relax. The lake attracts nature and fishing lovers. Swim in the calm water, go on a boat ride, go fishing, pick mushrooms and berries in the forest, and hike to the top of Nakerala.
