Sataplia Cave

Sataplia Natural Reservoir is located 6 km northwest of Kutaisi. It is located at Samgurali Hill at an altitude of 360 meters above sea level. Sataplia means “the place of honey”. The name derives from Sataplia Mountain, which got its name from the tradition of collecting honey from bees inhabiting the mountain. The reserve was created in 1935 to protect geological, paleontological, speleological and botanical monuments.

Visitors can take a walk in Sataplia Cave, which is 900 meters long, 10 meters high and 12 meters wide. It was discovered in 1925 by Petre Chabukiani, a researcher and pedagogue from Kutaisi. About 100 meters from the entrance there is a beautiful cupola-shaped hall and in 150 meters there is the “melted cemetery”. The cave is decorated with colourful lights which illuminate amazing stalactites and stalagmites. On the territory of Satplia Reserve there are also dinosaurs` footprints and from a glass-bottomed viewing platform one can admire stunning views of the nature reserve. The reserve is closed on Tuesdays.
