Takhti-Tepha mud volcanoes, sometimes also referred to as Vashlovani mud volcanoes is a landform created by the eruption of mud, slurries, water, and gases in the proximity of Takhti-Tepha mountain range.
I had heard about this beautiful place many times before, but first visited at the start of June 2021, during the Vashlovani Trip
This mud volcano is located on the plane, south of Dali water reservoir, at 620 m above sea level in Dedoplistsqaro Municipality, Georgia, and incorporated in Vashlovani Protected Areas.
Mud craters, along with small open vents are constantly active, erupting mud, oil, and gas.
The length of the pedestrian path across the Takhti-Tepha Natural Monument is 0.5 km. The total area of the natural monument is 9.7 ha. The largest mud cater is 3,5-4 m in diameter. The landscape is built of sandstones and clays.
Definitely a very beautiful place to visit while in Georgia
