Makhuntseti Waterfall

Tucked away in the mountainous landscape of Ajara lies the village of Upper Makhuntseti, home to one of Georgia's most coveted natural attractions: the Makhuntseti Waterfall. Standing tall at a staggering 36 meters (about 118 feet), the waterfall plunges into a sizeable natural pool, enveloped by a verdant tapestry of greenery.

Located a mere five-minute stroll from the main road, this awe-inspiring waterfall is a year-round attraction that offers visitors more than just a stunning sight. The surrounding area is sprinkled with idyllic picnic spots, where you can indulge in local Adjarian cuisine. Freshly made organic honey, churchkhela, and even roadside fast food are available for purchase from local vendors. And for an authentic taste of Georgian gastronomy, don't miss the locally fried fish paired with wine from the Keda area or the traditional Georgian spirit, chacha.

For adventurous souls, a walk on one of Ajara's largest arched bridges, dating back to the 9th-10th centuries, offers a thrilling experience. Alternatively, you can opt for a leisurely boat ride from Makhuntseti to the Acharistskali River's shore.

Near the waterfall, the river Adjaristskali presents a sandy beach and historic bridge, perfect for a quick swim or a rafting adventure. A number of restaurant-type food facilities and picnic infrastructures are also found here, providing visitors with an array of dining options.
