Captivating Bateti Lake surrounded with snow
28 November, 2017
The image depicts early winter landscape at  Bateti Lake, one of the smallest yet the most beautiful lakes throughout the country. It is located in Kareli Municipality, Georgia’s  Shida Kartli Region, at 1313 meters above sea level. The place is ideal to feel all colors of the seasons and the real beauty of Georgia’s nature.

The small lake on the mountain plateau surrounded by mixed forests and beautiful swamp is one of the main attractions of Dzama Gorge, which is a favorite destination for Georgian and foreign hikers, since it is easy to reach.  It takes two hours by car from Tbilisi to get there and then you have to walk for one hour.

The water area of the lake is only 0.02 m². Its deepest point  is 12 meters. The water is transparent and fresh. The lake  is covered with ice from December to March.

Bateti Lake is a popular destination for weekend getaways. Camping is possible during summer and early autumn. The best time to visit the aera is during the fall, filled with pallet of colors.

Longer and interesting hiking routes can be arranged in Dzama Gorge as well.
