Sairme - balneological-climatic resort

Sairme water was discovered by hunter brothers, who followed the footsteps of a wounded deer. The spring flowed on the reddened stones with rust, and everything around was whitened by salt. Hunters noticed that deer often visit a same place constantly. The place was granted a name Sairme as deer translates as iremi in Georgian (Sa-irme – deer's place).

The shepherds also noticed that a certain area in about 3 km away from the Sairme streams was always green, there was no snow cover in winters, and the land was dry for a few minutes after the rain. The secret of the "magic field" was unveiled in the 1920s, when geologists discovered hot mineral waters below the ground.

Sairme is located in the mountainous zone of the subtropical belt, Baghdati municipality, Imereti region, Georgia. Resort is situated on the northern slopes of the Meskheti mountain range, in the gorge of the river Tsablaristskali, on 950 m above sea level, 25 km from Baghdati, 

The climate is mild with snowy winters (average temperature in January - 1.0 ° C) and moderately warm summers (average temperature in August 17.0 ° C). Annual precipitation is 900 mm.

Notable for thermal waters, the first information about these waters can be found from the 90s of the XIX century. In the 1930s, Sairme was officially granted resort status. The first sanatoriums were built in soviet era. Infrastructure maintenance has also started. In the 1940s, the construction of a highway that connected the resort to the city of Baghdad (then Maiakovsky) was completed.

Sairme has the capacity to receive 150,000 visitors annually. The resort is connected to Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park from the south-east. Zekari is a relatively small resort nearby.

Sairme healing waters flows from several springs and are differ in chemical composition and healing properties: "Narzan" type carbonic acid hydrocarbonate calcium-sodium (stream № 1 and № 3) and "Borjomi" type carbon dioxide hydrocarbonate (well № 4 and № 5). 

In the depths of the coniferous-deciduous forests of the Sairme Mountains, in the valley of the river Tsablarastskali, natural filtration of hydrocarbonate calcium-sodium mineral water passes through centuries-old rocks and natural water "Sairme" is formed in the surface rocks by mixing with ground water. It flows from an altitude of 2000 m above sea level and undergo natural mineralization.

Carbonated mineral water is suitable for regulating the balance of metabolism. The product is saturated with calcium bicarbonate, which strengthens the skeletal system and helps stop the inflammatory process. Carbonated mineral water is used to restore impaired functions of the liver, urinary tract, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract; Promotes the release of harmful products resulting from metabolism.
