Vashlovani National Park is a wild and remote area of eastern Georgia, known for its unique badlands, sharp cliffs and abundant wildlife. This national park is one of the best for horse riding. The name Vashlovani comes from the Georgian word for apple trees and it refers to the many fruit and pistachio trees that make the landscape feel like a vast, wild orchard. The park was established in 1935 to protect the unique shallow forest ecosystem.
