Saqukhia Canyon

Nestled in the heart of the Atsaura river valley, Saqukhia Canyon is Guria's little secret. You might be cruising on the Lanchkhuti - Nasakirali road, when a sudden drop in temperature tells you, you're near the hidden gem - even on those scorching summer days. This is the land where the water tells tales, as it carves out canyons and crafts waterfalls like Akibula and Elinabado. If you're feeling adventurous, you can descend into the depths of the canyon using a somewhat secretive staircase from the road. Just a hint though, it's quite raw and uncommercialized. No signs to guide your way, no public restrooms, and please, pack out whatever you pack in since there aren't any garbage cans.

While the entire 16-kilometer (about 10 miles) stretch of the Atsaura river is bordered by the canyon, somewhere deep within, the famed waterfall of Georgia cascades with grace. It’s in the village of Atsana, a quaint settlement perched 150 meters (492 feet) above sea level, and a mere 8km (5 miles) jaunt from Lanchkhuti Municipality, where this captivating canyon comes to life. So, if you're in for an unexpected discovery, Saqukhia Canyon awaits!
