So, here we go…

By departing early in the morning from Yerevan we will be heading straight to Sataplia Nature Reserve, situated somewhat 10 km away from Kutaisi. There we will visit marvelous Sataplia Cave, rich in giant stalactites and stalagmites, and see petrified traces of dinosaurs that inhabited these territories long ago. Finally we will enjoy the beautiful scenes of Imereti Region from an observation platform with a transparent glass floor.
In the evening a pleasant walk in Kutaisi will take us to the historical center of the city. Along our way we will also visit the Mtsvanekvavila Church, known as the Church of the Green Flower, which offers wonderful views of the Rioni River and the western part of the city.

The next morning right after the breakfast we will drive to the Prometheus Cave. The road to the cave leads through the famous resort city of Tskhaltubo. Prometheus Cave is one of the largest karst caves in the region, with a length of 11 km, of which only 1060 m. is open to visitors, and the maximum height reaches 21 meters. The cave is rich in a variety of spectacular rock formations and underground lakes and a river, where, in case of availability, we will have a boat tour as well.
Our next destination will be the strikingly beautiful Martvili Canyon, located on Abasha River, close to Gachedili village, in the historical province of Samegrelo. This incredibly beautiful canyon rich with caves and waterfalls is particularly impressive due to the combination of bright green and blue colors. This is a must-visit place, where one can enjoy the high cliffs covered with lush forests, listen to the sound of the mountainous river that has carved its way through the solid rocks and simply admire the many views of the fabulous waterfalls. The water in the canyon is of turquoise color and is refreshingly cool even in the heat of summer. After having a boat ride on the peaceful waters of the river through this scenic canyon, we will continue our way to another picturesque waterfall near the village Balda.
Coming up next is the beautiful canyon Okatse, where we will enjoy the scenes from the specially designed observation platforms stretching along the canyon on 140m height. Then we’ll have an off-road ride to the magnificent waterfall Kinchkha, located on Okatse River
If time permits we will also visit Martvili Monastery (Chkondidi), an important Megrelian medieval religious center.
