The Khrami River has its source on the slopes of the Trialeti Range. The length of the river is 201 kilometres and is the right tributary of the Mtkvari River. Three reservoirs have been built on Khrami, including Tsalka Reservoir. The river is mainly fed by snow. The water level on the route is dependent on how much water has been released from the reservoir.
The first section starts near the village of Senebi, close to Bolnisi city, at 640 meters above sea level, and ends at Disveli Village, 540 meters above sea level.
The section is 13 kilometers long, with a drop in elevation of 100 meters, while the difficulty rating ranges between 2 and 3 (intermediate difficulty, tall and irregular waves, cliffs and whirlpools, transparent but narrow exits).
The second section starts at Disveli Village, 540 meters above sea level, and ends near the Tamarisi Hydroelectric Plant, 370 meters above sea level. The second section is 15 kilometers long, with a drop in elevation of 170 meters and a difficulty rating of 2-3 (intermediate difficulty, tall and irregular waves, cliffs and whirlpools, transparent but narrow exits).
The best months for kayaking on both sections of the Khrami River are March to June and October to November.
