ABASHA CANYON (აბაშის კანიონის)

The attractive Abasha Canyon (🎫17,25 GEL), also known as Gachedili or Martvili Canyon, is located in Western Georgia at an altitude of 240 meters above sea level. It was carved by the erosive action of the Abasha River in the limestone rocks of the southern part of the Ashkah massif in the Odishi-Guria plain. The canyon is 2,400 meters long and 5 to 7 meters wide, and 50 to 70 meters deep. Canyon creation was triggered by a major earthquake responsible for many Abbasid rifts. Unfortunately, it has been comprehensively adapted to the needs of tourists. It now contains multiple walkways and bridges giving lovely views, although it feels far from natural between the crowds and the built environment.
