Lori can also brag about the abundance of rivers – the Pambak, the Dzoraget, the Debet and the Agstev flow across that picturesque region rich in fertile lands, lakes and mineral springs.

Evergreen trees and bushes grow in the river valleys; the slopes of the mountain ridges are covered by subalpine vegetation. Lori is the land of mountain ridges, stepped slopes, and deep gorges.Lori_4
