The oldest settlements of Samegrelo existed in the territory of Kolkheti lowland and its nearby hills as early as the Stone Age. The Kindom of Colchis was already known to the whole of the ancient world by the 8th c. BC. It was in Colchis that the first Georgian money was minted – the Colchian tetri. The pre-Christian Kingdom of Colchis, that existed on the territory of Western Georgia was the first Georgian state mentioned in Greek history and mythology as remarkable and mysterious country where the Argonauts sailed to carry away the Golden Fleece.   

Departure from Kutaisi to Samegrelo region.
The tour starts from visiting Okatse canyons (trecking route 1,5 km): it is a cascade of three-step waterfalls falling from the eastern cliff of the Askhi limestone massif, located in the valley of the River Satsiskvilo. The height of the first waterfall is 25 meters whilst the height of the second one is 70 meters. After the stream joins the River Satsiskvilo, it creates a third, 35 meter-high step of the cascade. Okatse Canyon includes a path hanging on a cliff, a footpath, an orangery by an Italian designer and the Dadiani swimming place.

Departure to Martvili canyons. Making stiop for a lunch - Picnic on the open air.
Visiting one of the unique site of Georgia - Martvili Canyons. Over millions of years, the water has created breathtaking gorgen limestone rocks, reaching a depth of 40 meters, at the bottom of which actually the river flows. The total length of the canyon is one kilometer available to reach. In the upper part of the canyon, you can take a boat trip and reach the very beginning with 7 meter high powerful waterfall. Martvili looks and feels like a paradise not only because of its beautiful nature and amazing sites but also because of its inhabitants, who welcome guests in a tradition of warmth and hospitality. Martvili district is truly one of the greatest places in Georgia combining unique natural environment with historical monuments.
Departure back to Kutaisi in the evening hours.
