Zekari Pass is in the south of Imereti, in the gorge of the Khanistskali River, 2,182 meters above sea level, and connects two regions of Georgia - Imereti and Samtskhe-Javakheti.
Zekari Pass is part of the small ridge of Meskheti in the Caucasus. It starts from Baghdati Municipality, south of Imereti, and ends in Adigeni Municipality of Samtskhe-Javakheti after 24 kilometers.
This road has been used for caravan traffic since ancient times. The area is mostly mountainous and is covered with forests of oak, walnut, chestnut, spruce, ash tree, and other valuable species.
Mountains, forests, meadows, hills of the small Caucasus, flocks of sheep scattered on the mountain slopes, small huts of shepherds - everyday life disappears here, and only peace remains.
Near the pass, the Kershaveti river originates, in the same valley as the Zekari balneological resort. The sulfur waters extracted from the ground are mainly used for the treatment of rheumatic and neurological diseases.
However, don't think that only the healing waters have special powers, the mountain air, and the stunning surroundings also offer a lot of health benefits.
