Surrounded by the Egrisi Mountains and alpine meadows, Tobavarchkhili lake is a wild retreat straight from a postcard. The jagged peaks, colored hues of gray, green, and brown, form a perfect reflection on the surface of the lake. Keen hikers are treated to spectacular views of the Caucasus, ascending as high as 2650m, to reach the lake.
The route passes vast valleys, magnificent waterfalls, and many lakes. The lack of settlements provides a true taste of the Georgian wilderness.
Tobavarchkhili lake is in the Samegrelo district of Georgia near the village of Mukhuri. To reach the stunning lakes you can hire a jeep from Mukhuri, or begin your adventure from here on foot. Marshrutka to Mukhuri run from Zugdidi daily. The most rewarding way to reach the lakes is to hike. However, come well prepared for the trek as it normally takes 4 days.
