Description

Your private tour starts with a morning pickup from your Kutaisi location, embarking on a scenic two-hour drive towards the Chiatura region. As you travel Georgia, the towering Katskhi Pillar soon comes into view. This striking natural limestone monolith stands at over 40 meters high and is shrouded in history, dating back to activities from the 9th century. Historically, it has served as a place of monastic seclusion, symbolizing spiritual ascension and resilience, with a small church perched atop since the 4th century, accessible only by a precarious ladder.

Upon arrival at Sveri Adventure Camp, you're treated to a welcoming lunch, setting the tone for the day's experiences. Post-lunch, a detailed instructional session prepares you for the Via Ferrata. Securely clipped in, you'll follow your guide — a short walk leads to the starting point of your adventure. The Via Ferrata, the first in the Caucasus, offers a unique private tour experience. Choose from two routes tailored to different skill levels: an easier path for those new to the adventure, and a more challenging one for those seeking an adrenaline rush. As you navigate the route, equipped with iron ladders and steel cables, your private guide ensures a safe and engaging experience.

Beyond the thrilling climb, your trip to Georgia continues as you explore short distance caves nestled in the rocks nearby. The adventure culminates with a soothing swim in the Sadzaliskevi river pool, encircled by waterfalls — a serene retreat after the day's exertions.

The day concludes with a picnic in the camp's barbecue zone, where you'll enjoy local Imeretian delicacies such as Jonjoli, Ekala, Imeretian cheese, bread, Khachapuri, and homemade lemonade. This culinary experience, paired with the day’s travel and adventures, encapsulates the essence of a memorable day tour in Georgia.

As the sun dips below the horizon, a comfortable ride back to Kutaisi reflects on a day rich with personal achievements and a deeper connection with Georgia’s rugged landscapes and historic sites.
