One-day Tour to Dashbashi Canyon

The site is closed until spring 2021.

Tour itinerary:

Tbilisi – Dashbashi Canyon – Tbilisi

We will leave Tbilisi at 8:00 am and drive to Dashbashi, a deep mountain gorge situated 100 kilometers west of Tbilisi. This natural wonder is 7 kilometers and 300 meters deep. Its major attraction is spectacular cascading waterfalls called the "Weeping Wall." To reach the site we must hike down the canyon’s slope along a well-marked mountain path. The hike to the waterfall is 1.5 km long. A regular person needs 1-1.5 hours to make a round-way trip. The most challenging part of the trek is a steep climb back. But, be also prepared to walk on stones, since the ground along the Khrami River is full of smaller and larger rocks.

Once back to the car, we will continue our tour driving along spectacular lakes of Tsalka and Paravani, the latest being the highest lake in Georgia. Plains of Samtskhe with severe winters and frequent winds may seem unwelcoming. Yet the people who live here are full of hospitality. We will stop at a village of Poka Nunnery, where Saint Nino spent a night on her mission to convert Georgia into Christianity. In Poka Nunnery, nuns produce chocolate, cheese, jams, liquors, honey, bread, candles, and many more. The perfect place to buy original handmade souvenirs for your beloved. After visiting the nunnery, we will return to Tbilisi, passing once again along Paravani lake with as many photo stops as you like (you will want to have a lot!). Drop off at your hotel.
Duration of the hike: 1 hour 30 minutes (difficulty level: easy)

Price includes:

  1. All transfers (1-2 pax by sedan, 3-4 pax by Mercedes Vito or similar, 5-10 pax by Mercedes Sprinter passenger van);
  2. Entrance tickets to sights;
  3. Local, English speaking guide;
  4. Picnic lunch (with bottled mineral water).
