The first Geotrail will be created in the Caucasus

The Georgian Ecotourism Association, with the financial support of the Czech Embassy, is starting a project that involves the creation of the first geotrail in the Caucasus in the Uraveli river valley. Within the framework of the project, together with experts in the field, the Uraveli valley will be studied from the point of view of utilizing the tourist potential of the geological resource. On the basis of the research, a geological tourist route will be created, which will give visitors the opportunity to learn about the geological past of the valley, interesting phenomena, and at the same time benefit from the tourist services of the locals. The geological route will be developed in close consultation with representatives of Czech geoparks and in compliance with international Geotrail standards. Within the framework of the project, ecotourism principles will also be introduced in the activities of local tourism service providers and the partnership between the state, non-governmental and private sectors in the field of ecotourism will be improved. The project is implemented with the financial support of the Czech Embassy, within the framework of the cooperation program for the development of local small-scale projects and with the co-financing of the Georgian Ecotourism Association.
