ABOUT SAMEGRELO REGION
Samerelo is a historical Georgian province lying in the western part of the country. It´s name means “the land of Mingrelians” (second most populous Georgian ethnic group). In the ancient times, Samegrelo constituted a large part of the Colchis kingdom, famous as the “the land of the Golden Fleece”.
Samegrelo is mostly known for its historical sites, caves, mineral springs or coastal marshes. As the most of the province is covered by flatlands. It´s not considered to be a premium trekking destination. Which is quite surprising since Egrisi mountains lying in its northern parts treature some of the most scenic lakes in Georgia. Egrisi mountains are not as high as massifs further to the north, but are more diverse – one can find here many rocky peaks, glacial lakes, gorges and waterfalls. We offer the “Trek to Tobavarchkhili lake“, you definitely need to try this tour.
