Imereti: Okatse canyon and caves
Our way to the heart of Imereti – one of the foothill regions with the capital Kutaisi. But today we will be far from the bustle of the city – we will explore the most hidden corners of Imereti.
Not far from Kutaisi there is an unusual gorge, washed out by the Okatse mountain river, which has formed a unique canyon. This is one of the most beautiful natural attractions in Georgia and is definitely one of the TOP 10 things to see!
This is an unforgettable feeling of beauty and color of nature, and a walk along the suspension bridge over the canyon will give you an indescribable feeling of extreme, the feeling of soaring and flying over a forest shrouded in greenery. Children with a height of 120cm are allowed. +
As a bonus in our program, if timing permits, we will see the beautiful Kinchkha waterfall, which rightfully occupies one of the leading positions.
And then our route lies to an equally famous sight, which is known far beyond the borders of the country – the famous Prometheus cave – one of the main attractions of Imereti and all of Georgia. This is the TOP of the TOPs of the visited attractions. This cave is absolutely unrealistically large, and although only a tenth of it is open to tourists, it is still a lot and a walk along it takes about an hour. We will see the underworld – the kingdom of stalactites and stalagmites, underground rivers and lakes.

Being in Georgia and having completed your “must see” program, which did not plan to include unique natural attractions – canyons, listen to our recommendations and go with us!
Okatse Gorge is motivated by a meager summary that can fit into 2 words: “it’s beautiful there.” And if you also follow the folk tradition – “it is better to see once than hear once”, make a decision on the excursion as well.
A narrow stone-paved path, the route passes through rough terrain with small descents and ascents, winding through the forest, fills the chest with the purest mountain air. On the way, you can relax at one of the many benches, kindly placed along the entire route, fill your soul with the quiet poetry of peace and quiet. We are in the realm of magnificent nature. There is a time to stop and feel the greatness of wild untamed nature: a bizarre forest, gloomy, gnarled thickets of intricate trees, reminiscent of the scenery for a film, trying to repeat the images of animals like monsters and subjected to some incomprehensible genetic changes.
About 600 steps, a suspended console and an endless fairy tale of nature from a height of a fifty storey building – beauty and delight! Yes, such a walk over the abyss will make anyone admire and admire, well, it will tickle your nerves, the adrenaline is still the same!
And we will relieve fatigue and stress in the small baths of a mountain river, where members of the princely family once rested.
And, of course, the program includes a delicious lunch.
Further, we will go to visit the TOP visited in Georgia and known far beyond its borders, Prometheus Cave – one of the main attractions of Imereti and all of Georgia. This is the TOP of the TOPs of the visited attractions. This cave is absolutely unrealistically large, and although only a tenth of it is open to tourists, it is still a lot and a walk along it takes about an hour. We will see the underworld – the kingdom of stalactites and stalagmites, underground rivers and lakes.
Impressive and mesmerizing Georgia! And we want to show you the best.
