Chiatura: Georgian Chernobyl Day Tour

1. Chiatura: Georgian Chernobyl Day Tour

At 8:00AM, your driver and guide will meet you at your hotel/place of residence in Tbilisi. From here you will drive to the Katskhi pillar. Stunning and mysterious, this 40-meter high natural limestone monolith towers over the gorge of the Karshuna River. On top of the pillar, there is a monastery and reconstructed 8th-century church most likely built by the Stylite. There is only one inhabitant, monk Maxime who has been living in the monastery for over 25 years in solitude and silence. You will then continue onward to Chiatura, an industrial town founded in the late 1800s. In Soviet Georgia, the town was a center of manganese mining. Present Chiatura attracts visitors who are interested in Soviet time left-overs and remnants. To grasp a true feeling of the past, you can ride a communism-era cable car still used by the locals as a means of transport. This transport system has a dozen operating ropeway lines for passengers and two cargo lines for transporting manganese. The total length of the cableway exceeds 6,000 meters. Located between steep valleys and deep gorges Chiatura will leave an unforgettable impression on anyone visiting this off-the-beaten-track Georgian destination. At the conclusion of your day, you will be driven back to Tbilisi before being dropped off at your hotel/place of residence.

What people are saying about Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti

Outstanding Experiance!

Our guide Alex and our driver David were really great. It was an awesome day for us - It was a perfect tour, the whole day was well organized and Alex gave us some hints and told us how to find some hidden gems on our further trip. They also asked us about our wishes (picknick, unusual foto-stops, coffee-breaks, ...) during the day and fitted everything possible in our plans for the day. They really know how to do such kind of tours!

Chiatura was an incredible Soviet place. If you interested in seeing something different and step back into Soviet times this is the tour for you. Also see other things churches also. My driver/tour guide was great. Not afraid to get dirty and explore. Great day trip!

A slightly different sightseeing tour - but really highly recommended. Our guide Aleksi was great and brought the information across in an understandable and interesting way. Whenever possible, he responded to our interests.

We had a super guide called Aleksi he was charming, informative and nothing was to much bother which my husband used extensively as he kept getting him to stop for photos!
