Ag-Gel National Park

Shallow (0.5-3.0 m) saline lake (freshwater in the past) with vast Phragmites, Typha and Scirpus beds, open-water areas linked by channels through reeds, together with saltmarsh fringes and semi-desert islands with Salsola, etc., lying between the Kura and Aras rivers. Surrounding Mil steppe is slightly undulating alluvial plain with semi-desert and desert vegetation. The wetland area has recently decreased in size, having previously increased from 4,400 ha to 10,000 ha as a result of receiving water from irrigation systems. This wetland, together with lakes Boz Koba (IBA 010) and Sarysu (IBA 032), forms the water-body system of the Mil steppe.
