On September 16, 17, and 18, Chiatura is to host the Adventure 2022 international adventure tourism festival. Chiatura is known as a mining town, a manganese ore deposit, but Chiatura is much more than that. Ancient archaeological and cultural monuments, karst caves, temples, and fortresses, Chiatura has everything to make the town one of the most important tourist areas in Georgia.
The Chiatura adventure festival, Adventure 2022, serves this purpose, which, with the initiative and financial support of the “Georgian Manganese” company, will give festival guests the opportunity to engage in various types of extreme sports over the three days of the event.
Lake Mandaeti, hidden in beautiful nature, is waiting for everyone who loves sailing. A camping zone for 100 people will be organized on Mandaeti Lake.
People interested in speleotourism and hiking will have the opportunity to visit the Dzudzuana cave, where the remains of the oldest thread in the world were found, and the Kotia cave, where the first complete skeleton of a Paleolithic man in the Caucasus was discovered. The hike will last 24 hours and the participants will camp in the cave with sleeping bags. A choreographic performance “Dovin Doven Dovli” will be held in the vicinity of the Kotia cave. The participants of the trek will gather around the bonfire, with torches –just part of the show that the organizers of the project have prepared for the participants.
Adrenaline, dexterity, endurance, observation, speed, flexibility, physical strength, and fun together – this is rock climbing, for which the climbing route of Katsakhi Sveti and Sveri village is waiting for you. A 25-kilometer bicycle tour and the most exciting high-line show, delicious food and a camping area – all these present the new perspectives of Chiatura.
Within the framework of the festival, there will also be a presentation and discussion about the tourist potential of the town.
The festival will be accompanied musically by TAMADA and Loudspeakers.
The festival is presented by Imereti Tour, and the initiator and general sponsor is the company “Georgian Manganese.” The festival is partnered with Chiatura Municipality City Hall and Sveri Adventure Camp. Supporters: National Tourism Administration of Georgia and DMO Imereti.
