Paravani lake is a volcanic lake in Georgia, a popular destination for fishing.

My experience, Explo description: 

Paravani Lake is located 2,073 m (6,801 ft) above sea level and has a surface area of 37.5 km2 (14.5 sq mi).
Its maximum and average depths are 3.3 m (11 ft) and 2.2 m (7 ft 3 in) respectively.
The water level is low during October and November and is high during May and June.
The lake is frozen during wintertime and the thickness of the ice ranges from 47 to 73 cm (19 to 29 in).

How getting there: 

If you don’t mind some rough, gravely cycling the route between Tbilisi and the Turkish border at Vale/Posof is a gem, and much preferred, I’ve heard, to the border with Turkey at Batumi. Going via beautiful Lake Paravani avoids all the busy roads (and bad drivers) on the main paved routes. And if cycling towards Tbilisi, you will enjoy a fantastic panoramic view as you cycle in from the west and then drop 20 km of downhill into the country’s capital that awaits you in the valley below.
