It is not surprising that Kakheti is characterized by more diverse natural conditions as there are different physical-geographic areas in the region: a) Ivri highland and Eldari lowland with steppe and semi-desert vegetation; b) Alazani plains and Kakheti Caucasus Mountains with natural-territorial complexes characteristic to Kolkheti area in some districts; c) Tusheti hollow with closed barrier ranges and high-mountain subniveal and nival landscapes.
