Mestia is the administrative and tourist center of Svaneti. It is located in the foundation among peaks and mountains, on the shore of the rivers Mestiachala and Mulkhra. The height from the sea level is 1500 meters.
Tanie lake is located in Khevsureti, exactly- in Arkhota, in the gorge of Tanie Water. As for me, this lake is the second most beautiful lake, after Toba-Varchkhili lakes. The lake is situated between two, huge mountains.
