Good idea to spend your day is to take friends and with cars go to rest to Sioni Reservoir located 65 km from Tbilisi.
You have to take Tbilisi-Tianeti Road, which begins from the Gldani District. Serpentine-like road going through the spectacular woody mountains up to the top and then down. The government is making road renovation works, so the part of the road is already in good condition, but some still not, so please note, that the driving time will take approximately 1,5 h each direction and the best time to depart Tbilisi is 9-10 am Directions where to go you can see in the map.
Area of Sioni is very beautiful, with crystal clear air and the reservoir’s waters are not polluted, because it is no pollution sources in this area. The only “traditional” local problem is huge amount of waste along the coastline, so if you are too sensitive to that, please choose further way from the traditional resting place directly at the dam.
