The holidays should definitely be filled with bright moments, because in fact our whole life consists of a carpet of such vivid memories. This excursion will appeal to all those who love heights, views of rock formations, deep gorges and are looking for places to get into and explore for themselves.
We are going with you to the Kvemo Kartli region, which is spread across southern Georgia. These places are located on the approaches to the Lesser Caucasus Range. Here the nature is radically different from the views at the foot of the harsh Kazbeg, on the northern border of Georgia, or from the wine region of Kakheti, which is in the east, or from the subtropics of the sea coast of Adjara in the west.
Here pastures crown deep canyons, dense mixed forests cover the hills and hide the sources of noisy mountain rivers, which in Soviet times people blocked, creating turquoise reservoirs for irrigating land and maintaining fish farms.
Today we are going to Dashbash Canyon. Nature is the best creator and creator. And here you are convinced of this again.
An extended canyon with a garland of flowing waterfalls, with a difference in height when descending to its bottom and dizzying views from the upper observation platforms.
For several years, an Israeli company has been working on a government project to create an unusual observation deck in the shape of a diamond, suspended like a necklace over the canyon itself. This glass bridge and cafe in the diamond itself allows you to enjoy breathtaking views over the abyss into the canyon. The walk from the glass bridge to the bottom of the canyon and back can be classified as medium difficulty and takes up to 3 hours.
On the road to the canyon we will admire the turquoise surface of the Algeti reservoir. Let's discuss the potential and economy of this region.
Having enjoyed and been inspired by the heights, we will go to the German settlement to taste Shalo wine, which is endemic to this region. Here you will find out under what circumstances the German colonies came to the Caucasus and what trace and legacy they left in Georgian culture. If you wish, you can dine at the family farm right there in the garden, tasting traditional dishes of this region.
Returning to Tbilisi, we will stop at the monastery, which offers panoramic views of the southern territories of Georgia and the Lesser Caucasus Range, as well as Tbilisi, located on the banks of the Mtkvari River.
