8 Day Yoga & Wellness Retreat in Ajara, Georgia
One of the most beautiful regions in Georgia, Ajara is situated on the Black Sea coastline. Batumi, the "Pearl of the Black Sea" as it is often called, is administrative centre of Ajara. It is a place of numerous architectural innovations and home to picturesque beaches. Visitors especially admire the region's pristine and unaltered nature. It is particularly intriguing for eco tourists, as it hosts various protected areas such as Batumi Botanical Garden and Mtirala National Park. Mtirala National Park is the wettest place in the whole country thus providing climate for unique subtropical plants and habitants. Culture-wise, Ajara hosts the oldest fortress of Gonio dating back to 1st century AD. The retreat program is based in Tsikhisdziri. It is unique for its mixture of sea and mountain climates which provide healing properties for various diseases. The resort slopes are incredibly beautiful as they are covered by tea plantations, bamboo avenues and citrus gardens. There is no trip in Georgia complete without a visit to Tbilisi - most unique capital in the world. Tbilisi feels European, medieval and completely foreign all at once, it seems to change after each and every quarter, leaving you amazed and inspired.
