Georgia spoils travelers with rugged, sky-piercing peaks, wild meadows, and hidden ravines. The plethora of natural wonders makes choosing an ideal itinerary a herculean task if your time in Georgia is brief.
Our Tsalka Canyon tours (formerly Dashbashi Canyon) are here to make your decision easier. The itineraries focus on a 300-meter-deep mountain gorge located 2 hours away from Tbilisi.
Tsalka Canyon combines natural beauty and comfortable tourism infrastructure. Lush vegetation covers steep slopes of the gorge. A narrow mountain path leads to the canyon’s major highlight - a spectacular cluster of cascading waterfalls, which you can also admire from a glass bridge stretching over the gorge.
A trip to Dashbashi Canyon makes an ideal half-day getaway from Tbilisi. But it can also be a part of longer journeys. You can combine it with a stop at the picturesque Tsalka Lake, a favorite destination of Georgian fishermen. A hike to the ruins of the 9th-century Kldekari Fortress is a superb choice, too. You could also drive further - to visit the shores of the crystal-clear Paravani Lake and the nearby Poka St. Nino Nunnery or even the caves of Vardzia. Tsalka Canyon tours offer all those options.
Explore the beautiful Tsalka Canyon on this 1-day tour from Tbilisi. Take a short, easy hike through the verdant canyon to admire the magnificent waterfalls, caves, and cliffs.
