DAY 2

Rise and shine, its pouring rain!  After a fairly decent evening of sleep, we were up and enjoying a warm cup of tea and a bowl of oatmeal before our planned 16km hike towards Black Rock Lake and the second Meteo shelter.  Even though it was raining, we both agreed we were in this for the adventure and the rain was part of that adventure.  Thankfully, we had prepacked all our clothes and things into plastic bags, plus the rain covers on our packs.  We were good to go walking in the rain.  So, we thought.

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).
