This high mountain pass is at an elevation of 2226 meters above the sea level. It is located on the border between two regions Imereti and Samtskhe-Javakheti. On the way there, if driving from Imereti, you will pass Bagdati city and Sairme health resort.
After Sairme a dirty road leads through a forest and later you can admire stunning views of the Lesser Caucasus Mountains, clearings, hills and small shepherds huts. From the Pass the road continues to Abastumani (a small spa with hot springs and astronomical observatory) and later to Akhaltsikhe and Vardzia. The route is as interesting as the main road which goes to Samtskhe-Javakheti region through Khashuri. Our tip: on a hot day go to the Pass, have a picnic there and chill out in the beautiful nature.
