Lake Shaori is an artificial reservoir formed by the Shaori hydroelectric power station on the river of the same name. The first unit of the HPP was launched in 1955. This is the highest-pressure HPP in Georgia.
It is located in the mountains at an altitude of more than 1100 m above sea level. It is the largest water body in the lower Racha region of Georgia. Its length is about 7 kilometers. And the maximum width – 2, 5 kilometers. Due to the bifurcated “tail” of the southern part, it resembles a sea monster
The lake is surrounded by hills covered with dense coniferous and mixed forests — mountain range Nakereba. There are several small sandy beaches. It is worth considering that the climate of Shaori is typical for the middle mountains. It is characterized by large temperature changes and overall coolness in comparison with the regions below.
Two bridges were built over the reservoir. From one of them in Sunny weather you can see the snowy peaks of the Caucasus. The reservoir has all the conditions for a wonderful holiday in the lap of nature, including a good fishing and picnic. Not far from the West Bank of the reservoir on a small hill stands the well-preserved temple of Nikortsminda, built in the 11th century.
This is not the most popular place among tourists. But it is ideal for a romantic trip and lovers of gorgeous views of nature.
