Canyoning in Dzmuisi Canyon

No special training or skills are needed to go canyoning in the beautiful Dzmuisi Canyon. You do not have to prepare anything in advance to have a safe trip.


Dzmuisi Canyon is located on the southwestern slope of the Nakerala Ridge in Tkibuli Municipality, Imereti Region.


The route starts in Dzmusi village, 1,050 meters above sea level. The canyon is 3.5 kilometers long with a descent of 650 meters. There are 13 waterfalls on this route, the tallest of which is 25 meters.

The canyon is built from granite rock layers and creates deep basins, which allow canyoners to slide down the waterfall and jump from a height of five meters. On nine of the waterfalls, you can go down with ropes. It takes 3.5 to 4 hours to cover the whole route.

The Season

The best time to go canyoning is from the middle of May to the end of October, when the average temperature is from 20 to 25 degrees.

How to Reach the Starting Point
