Martvili Canyon, a natural wonder, holds historical significance as it once served as a bathing place for the nobles of Samegrelo, particularly the Dadiani family. Today, it has transformed into a popular tourist destination, drawing people to its captivating scenery.
Visitors can explore a 700-meter-long stone-paved circular canyon route, witnessing picturesque waterfalls and enjoying a 300-meter boat trip on the Abasha River. The visitor center, situated in the village of Inchkhuri on the left bank of the river Abasha in Martvili municipality, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti region of Western Georgia, serves as a starting point for the exploration.
During a walking tour at Martvili Canyon, visitors can discover the historical 30-step stair path constructed by large limestone boulders, encounter two natural limestone bridges, enjoy three overview platforms, observe 19th-century water mills, and explore fossilized shells of nautiluses and sea urchins. The canyon provides a unique blend of natural beauty and historical charm.
