Bakhmaro is located in the district of Chokhatauri on the Meskheti mountain range in the Guria region. Distance from Tbilisi is around 340 km – a journey time of around four and half hours, at over 2000 meters above sea level, Bakhmaro (Georgian: ბახმარო) in Guria region is the highest alpine climatic resort in Georgia. The average annual relative humidity is 73 per cent and the mixture of sea and mountain air is beneficial for people with respiratory problems. The surrounding mountains are a source of Bakhmaro bottled spring water, which is similar to Borjomi water in its chemical composition.
Views from the forest covered mountains are breathtaking, especially from Lenchis Seri (2505 m), which is called “Sun rise hill”. There is also a smaller Bakhmaro peak called “Sunset hill” (2250 m). When there is clear visibility it is possible to watch the sun set on the Black Sea.Winter is moderately mild but snow cover is very high (up to 5 meters) and lasts for about 6 months. Work to develop the area and its infrastructure was begun several years ago and will establish Bakhmaro as an all-year round resort, including winter sports. Bakhmaro houses are of an unusual style. Built of wood, they are perched on columns to maximize air flow in the warm, damp climate.
