Joghtala was a winter pasture located in the territory of the Gazakh uezd of the former Yelizavetpol (Ganja) governorate, later in the former Karvansara (Ijevan) district, and currently in the Tavush province. It was dissolved in 1930.

The toponym was coined by combining the word “jo” which is a phonetic variant of the word “ju” used in the sense of “water” in Old Turkic and the word “tala” used in the sense of “a plain, steppe, field”, “a woodless, bare ground in the forest” in Turkic.
