I believe one of my most favourite places in Tbilisi is a Turtle Lake (Kus Tba). I have been heading here pretty often, actually just a few weeks ago we did a shorter hiking route heading from Turtle lake to Vake Park. There are pretty many hiking trails around Turtle lake - if you are found of eco-tourism or just like me (us) are looking to wind your head from noisy city sounds - these hikes will do it best!

Today we made a spontaneous route from Turtle lake to Tskenti. At start of this trip I had no idea we will actually end our route there, but as I said - it was a spontaneous route. In time of what we discovered first messengers of Spring - different mountain flowers (snowdrops, for example), had a delicious picnic, seen a rabbit and hound dogs hunting for him, and many other)

I forgot to charge my phone so I cannot give you precise route, but according to Google Maps - this route is 7.0 km long and it's to possible to finish it in 1 K 46 min. For us it took around 4 hours and felt like 20 km, but we had three breaks for in-taking our meal, enjoying a coffee or just relaxing with beautiful views.

I managed to capture 41 picture from this route, and proudly am sharing them to you!
