Georgia is one of the best destinations for nature lovers. While visiting my country, you can unveil many hidden gems of nature. You have probably already checked some of my stories about the miraculous nature. In this article, I am going to present you the first part of the series on the most beautiful waterfalls in Georgia.
The Legvtakhevi Waterfall is located in the old district of Tbilisi, near the sulfur baths. Above it, there is a botanical garden where the Tsavkisi River creates several small waterfalls, after which it flows into the Legvtakhevi Gorge. In the end, it connects to the Mtkvari River. This 22-meter-high waterfall is very beautiful, especially in summer, where you can escape hot days, right in the heart of Tbilisi and cool down a bit. But if you have more time, make sure to visit other amazing waterfalls spread all around Georgia.
