Hotel Dalis Mta


Hotel Dalis Mta is located some 35 kilometers from the Dedoplitskaro town, right next to the Dalis Mta water reservoir in the Chachuna managed area.

Many thanks to Ralph Schmidt for making this trip happen. June 5-6, 2021

Picnic Area - Vashlovani National Park 32 km


This picnic area is located on the crossroads before Chalaubani  - the Tsnori - Dedoplitskaro-Kvemi Kedi​ road.
