In Mtirala National Park the plant diversity is very high with a lot of Caucasian specialties. Birds are not so numerous but the species that can be seen are interesting, especially woodpeckers (e.g. White-backed Woodpecker). Along the river, Grey Wagtail and White-throated Dipper are numerous. Alongside the White-backed Woodpecker other woodpeckers like Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Black Woodpecker and Grey-headed Woodpecker can be found. The streams harbor a special species of salamander, only found in the Caucasus.



Trails can be easily accessed at the Mtirala Park Administration (gps: 41.6799 41.860). Click on the P in the map to get directions. There is a small museum there as well. The suggested walking route on the Birdingplaces-map below is about 9 km. Alternatively you can walk to the waterfall and back to the park administration, most species can be seen along that route.
