On top of the World – Black Rock Lake, Lagodekhi National Park

Adversity is the one defining word I am able to describe my experience on this 3-day trek.  The trail is hard, steep, and at times offering an extraordinary feeling of being on top of the world.

Location – The short version.

Lagodekhi National Park is located on the southern slopes of the Caucasus mountains, boarding Azerbaijan and Dagestan, at the north-eastern edge of the Kakheti region.  The park offers a huge area of nearly 25,000 hectares of protected sub-tropical forest filled with indigenous flowers, fauna, and a handful of wild animals.  There are 4 trails offered for those who are interested in exploring the park: Grouse Waterfall (9km), Ninoskhevi Waterfall (8km), 11th-century Machi Castle (3km from main road), and the Black Rock Lake Circuit (48km).

Dream it. Wish it. Do it.

Making life happen instead of waiting for life to happen is a choice.  Time does not stop for anyone, for any reason.  It is up to you and is solely your responsibility to live your life towards the fullest desire you wish to.  For us, we wanted to live the dream  of adventure, culture, tradition, and the opportunity to give our children something greater than we were currently offering them.  It has not been easy, but WOW has it been worth it!
