About Sphagnum Peatlands of Ispani

Best time to visit: All Season

Unique Swamp of Ispani - The only filtering sphagnum swamp in the world since 1997 Ispani II under the Ramsar Convention is a wetland of international importance in Adjara, in the Kobuleti Protected Areas, three hundred meters from the Black Sea coast. Peatland preserves important archaeological sites, sites of former settlements dating back to the IV and III centuries BC.

Rare peatland of Ispani, the same Ispani II at first glance looks like a lake covered with a 25-45 cm thick sphagnum - a rare white moss. With the sphagnum, the water forms a smooth dome that acts as a cloud and is never covered by water. Sphagnum can absorb 25 times more water than its own weight. It is the diverse sphagnum of the Ispani swamps that protects Kobuleti from floods.

Kobuleti Protected Areas include sphagnum peatlands of Ispani 1 and Ispani 2. It has a typical, humid, subtropical climate. Annual rainfall is 1,500–2,500 mm, most of which occurs in the form of rain during the autumn and winter seasons. The swampy habitats of the Kobuleti Protected Areas are characterized by a diversity of migratory waterfowl species. It is also rich in plant species.

A pedestrian path leads from the entrance of the protected areas to the tower. Information boards are placed on the road, which tell visitors about the uniqueness of the protected areas. It is also possible to go hiking with swamp skis on sphagnum peatlands.

If the visitor observes well and if fortune smiles on him, he will notice a beautiful bluebird, the Alcedo. Also, these places are the habitat of a rare swamp turtle and he will see it too.

მოგესალმებით, სამწუხაროდ არ ვფლობთ სიტყვა ისპანის ეტიმოლოგიაზე ინფორმაციას.

მაინტერესებს, ახლა ზამთარში და პანდემიის პირობებში თუ არის შესაძლებელი ჭაობების მონახულება?
