The area is located Northeast of the village of Gyovren, about 1600 m. above sea level in karst marbles and gneisses of the Chamla Hill, surrounded by The Muglenska (Tenesdere) River and The Chairdere River, near the reserve Kazanite that was created for the preservation of mixed forest of fir (Abies alba), black pine (Pinus nigra), white pine (Pinus sylvestris), beech (Fagus), spruce (Picea) and other species.


The name Wolf Stone comes from the legend of wolves gathered over the village and howled persistently to warn the villagers of the impending earthquake.
