Full description
After being collected from your centrally-located accommodation in Tbilisi, you will travel to an extremely different region of Georgia, Javakheti. This area is located in the southern part of the country, and sits close to the Armenian border. You will begin by experiencing the Dashbashi Canyon, which is several kilometers away from the town of Tsalka. The Dashbashi Canyon is one of the most beautiful (but not so famous) natural landmarks in the country. The height of the canyon is 1,100-1,500 meters, with a length of 8 kilometers. Following this, you will visit the Phoka Village, which sits on the shoreline of Paravani Lake at an altitude of 2,080 meters. This lake is the largest in the country, and in this village you will visit the Phoka St. Nino Convent. This monastery is named after St. Nino, who entered the country through this region and arrived in the town of Mtskheta (which was then the capital of Georgia). It is allegedly here that he preached gospel, converting Georgians from paganism to Christianity in the 4th century. You will then have time for lunch at the Phoka St. Nino Convent. Here you will be able to taste delicious Georgian dishes cooked from organic products by sisters in a nearby nunnery. Following lunch, you will move on to the Saghamo Lake, whose name literally translates to "evening". Located close to this lake is the Sagamo Village. The lake is of tectonic origin, completely freezing over in winter time. You will then explore Khanchali Lake, which is a unique lake because of its depth (only 0.8 meters). This is one of the best places in the area for birds, it is warmer than other lakes which causes many birds to nest there. Finding food is extremely easy for them in such shallow water, and during the warmer seasons, migratory birds frequent this lake as a temporary feeding station.
