Vashlovani National Park is home to some of Georgia’s most unique and diverse landscapes. Here you’ll find narrow canyons and jagged peaks, expansive savanna dotted with pistachio trees, bubbling mud volcanoes, barren plateaus, forested mountains, and a snaking river forming the border with Azerbaijan. This huge swathe of land, located in the very southeastern corner of Georgia, is spectacularly beautiful and full of surprises.
Throughout five days exploring the area it was all too easy to forget we were in Georgia, being transported instead to the wadis of Oman, the deserts of Iran, the bizarre rock formations of Upper Mustang, and the savannas of East Africa. It quickly became one of our favourite places in the country, and we highly recommend planning a visit. To help you do just that, we’ve put together this Vashlovani travel guide complete with practical advice, suggested itineraries, downloadable route maps, and other essential info.
