Mtirala National Park (Western Georgia, Region of Adjara)
Mtirala National Park is a rare and unique place in its natural beauty. This rock massif with an area of 15.8 thousand hectares is the national park of Adjara. It is located at an altitude of 1761 m above sea level on Mount Mtirala, which means “Crying” in Georgian. The mountain got its name due to the fact that it often rains and fogs in the Mtirala Park. Due to the huge amount of precipitation falling per year (4.5 thousand mm), Mtirala is considered the wettest place in Europe. This is a fabulous unique corner of the pristine nature untouched by man.
The landscape of the park is represented by stepped terraces descending to the sea. Each level has its own unique plants and trees characteristic of this climatic zone. Almost all the trees in the park are covered with moss. Here you can find mixed coniferous forests, beech plantations, Pontic oaks, Colchis forests, gorges, waterfalls, boxwood groves and chestnut forests, mountain rivers, alpine meadows with a variety of herbs and flowers and crystal-clear mountain air, which is impossible to breathe. The park has many healing springs with simple and mineral water located on the mountain slopes.
Experts believe that this is practically the only place on Earth where such a rare and unique flora can be found. There are one and two-day hiking trails in the Mtirala National Park. The trail is marked and comfortable. Places for picnics and campsites are arranged, a campfire site is separated, and on the 9th km of the trail there is a tourist shelter Mtirala, where you can spend the night. The national park offers tourists hiking, horse riding, scientific and ecological tours.
