  • Machakhela National Park

Machakhela National Park is located in the Adjara Region, basin of the Machakhela River.  Machakhela itself is a relatively small trans-boundary river between Georgia and Turkey. Machakhela valley is home of the unique variety of relic and endemic plants. 10,868 ha of Machakhela valley is covered by forests, 75 % of the territory is virgin forests. Most of the territory of the valley is occupied by the Colchis type mixed forests with domination of beech. Dominant species are beech, chestnut, oak, spruce, etc. Among woody plants there are 13 species enlisted in the Red Book of Georgia. Around 200 species of vertebrates (mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish) are found on the proposed territory.

Machakhela National Park supports:

  • Conservation and protection of unique ecosystems;
  • Tourism development;
  • Contributing to the creation of an ecological corridor between the protected areas of south-west Georgia (in particular, Mtirala National Park and Kintrishi state reserve) and protected areas of north-east Turkey (in particular, Jamili biospheric reserve and others);
  • Improve socio-economic conditions for local community to grow alternative income
  • Promoting transboundary cooperation _ linking the Machakhela national park with the adjacent protected areas in Turkey can have positive effects by giving a good example of conservation and regional cooperation etc.
