Dashbashi Canyon – Canyons of Tsalka or Dashbashi canyons is one of the most impressive natural monuments of Georgia, green and beautiful all year long. Located 110 km from Tbilisi and 2 km from small town of Tsalka, In village Dashbashi. Natural Monument is a canyon carved by Ktsia (Khrami) River. It is located at 1,110-1,448 m above sea level. The vegetation cover of the surrounding ecosystem is rather sparse. whereas the plants on the steep slopes of the canyon and astounding waterfalls create absolutely different micro-landscape.
with characteristic micro-climate, specific fauna etc. It is nice and chilly in summer (but beware of hogweeds this season). It is also exotically green and warmer than Tsalka and Dashbashi village areas in winter. Beautiful with its dozens of frozen waterfalls. Which you will find even more if you follow the canyon up from the main tourist site.
Another Important site in Tsalka. Ruins of medieval Kldekari fortress which was the center of resistance for Kldekari principals against Georgian kings. Kldekari literally means stone gate and it actually defends historical route between Lower and Inner Kartli regions. Which cuts Rocky Trialeti range and makes a natural pass – stone gate. From the fortress you can observe June’s all green or newly snowed plateau of Tsalka in winter with some frozen lakes, Algeti national park forests in the fall, also Gori and inner Kartli ridges and plains.
