Dzmuisi Canyon

Picture this: a winding canyon carved over time by the relentless forces of water and wind, a realm cloaked in verdant greenery, punctuated by an astonishing series of waterfalls. Welcome to Dzmuisi Canyon, an untouched masterpiece of nature, tucked away in Tkibuli Municipality, a mere 55 km (roughly 34 miles) drive from Kutaisi.

This geological gem is not just a pretty face though, oh no! Dzmuisi Canyon is a veritable playground for the thrill-seeker. With a ravine stretching 1.5 km (about 0.93 miles), it's a canvas upon which to paint your perfect canyoning adventure.

First, you'll need to commit to the journey. A two-hour drive from Kutaisi brings you to Dzmuisi, followed by an hour's walk through a trail shaded by the forest's canopy. And then, the real fun begins - five hours of adrenaline-fueled exploration within the canyon itself.

Envision a roller-coaster ride, but instead of metal tracks and neon lights, you've got a river cutting through an age-old canyon. A river that runs you past 12 majestic waterfalls, whisks you across 8 rope access points, slides you down 2 natural water slides, and dares you to leap off two cliff jumping points. The crescendo of this symphony is a waterfall standing at an impressive 20 meters (roughly 66 feet) high - an aqueous fireworks display that is sure to steal your breath away!

Your starting point stands at 1050 meters (approximately 3445 feet) above sea level, and your exhilarating journey ends at 650 meters (around 2133 feet) above sea level. The thrill of canyoning is in the descent, and Dzmuisi Canyon delivers this in spades.

The canyon, discovered in 2017 by Georgian climbers and National Geographic photographers, was hailed as one of the most unique canyons in the world by American scientists. As the Lekhidari River winds its way through the canyon, it forms a mesmerizing cascade of waterfalls, each more impressive than the last.

Navigating through the Dzmuisi Canyon requires a seasoned guide and specialized equipment. The route is not for the faint of heart, but for those who dare, the rewards are unparalleled. Whether you're an extreme sports enthusiast or simply looking to add a dash of adventure to your life, Dzmuisi Canyon delivers an experience you'll never forget. An expedition into the heart of Georgia's wilderness, into a world as exhilarating as it is beautiful, awaits you. Will you heed the call?
