Javakheti Protected Areas include the Municipalities of Akhalkalaki and Ninotsminda. The highest point of Javakheti is Mount Great Abuli, with a height of 3,300 meters above sea level. The Javakheti Plateau is the coldest place among settlements. It is characterized by a dry continental climate, with low average annual temperatures and frozen lakes in the winter. The Javakheti region is unique in the Caucasus region with sub-alpine meadows, mountain steppes, volcanic mountains and wetlands, which makes the region attractive for migrating birds.
It is possible to plan various types of hiking, horse-riding and bicycle tours too at the territory of Javakheti Protected Areas.
