In Telavi region, Kakheti, at Napareuli vallage, in Lopota gorge (20 km from Telavi and 170km from Tbilisi) at Lopota lake we met a tollgate. I was lucky to be with a group of people and the hotel room was already reserved. Amazing lake waving hauntingly  between the mountains isn’t affordable for tourists.

Just they won’t be let in…

Though, the people who prefer to rest in the mountains, Lopota is the best place.  Beautiful nature, a lake and peaceful atmosphere… There is everything to rest wonderfully. Resort “Lopota” was opened in 2008. (The resort  was said to be opened to develop tourism, though I doubt it was true, as tourism doesn’t only mean a reserved room). Beautiful swans swim in the lake. The length of the lakeis1 km and the depth is 1.5m at the shore. In the middle it is said to be 4m. Guests spend unforgettable time there.

Service at the resort includes horse-riding., billiards, tennis-courts and etc…

We met many Russian guests at Lopota. They were having wonderful time and enjoying all the services offering by the hotel.
