During the fall, the motorway towards Bakuriani is especially beautiful. It follows upwards forest-covered slopes. Against the verdure of coniferous forests, yellowish and reddish foliage of trees and thick bushes flesh out in thousand hues. And the caravans of mist turned into white ships incessantly float in the gorges and over slopes.
Leave everyday stress and concerns behind and come up to Bakuriani.
Ski season lasts till mid April. Then snow melts in the plains, while the mountains remain snow-covered.
In April and May, you could enjoy watching the mists sliding over the mountains and take a walk in the blossoming coniferous forests. In summer, it’s pleasantly cool here during evenings and sometimes it’s even cold. And this happens while down in the flatlands people are disturbed of unbearable heat.
Go up onto Kokhtagora through cable-way. From a top Kokhta you will see the Caucasus Range stretched before your eyes. The festival of colors, the azure space, and the chain of mountains – from the black Sea to the Caspian – see this miracle of nature in a clear day.
