The lake and its surroundings have great tourism potential. Keli Lake and the beautiful views of the Keli plateau will fill you with unforgettable impressions. The lake basin is created by damming the lava flow of a large glacial circus, which was later recycled by the glacier. It holds two basins. The lake is fed by snow, groundwater and rainwater. The maximum water level is in June and the minimum in February. From the lake flows the river Ksani. The Keli Lake is covered with ice for 7-8 months. In the vicinity of Keli Lake, you can visit Kelitsadi and Archebi lakes.
