A very busy and emotional day is waiting for you. We will hike to the canyon of Birtvisi where volcanic formations (“pillars”) are mixed with dense forest. In the upper part of the canyon a fortress was built (tenth century), the highest tier of which is located at an altitude of 1,400 meters above the sea level. After the canyon we will go to a plateau located at the junction of the gorges of two rivers – Khrami and Chivchavi. Since ancient times, cultural and political center of Kartli, the city of Samshvilde, has been located on this plateau.
