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.
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.
