Khaheti – is a region in east of Sakartvelo which is mostly known for producing vine. We believe that almost in whole region you will be welcomed and treated with a glass of local vine. Well, maybe it is not an exception only for this region. However, Kakheti is also rich in history as here you will find the incredible monastery cave complex of Davit Gareja in a desolate spot overlooking the Azerbaijan border.

Helpful tips

Markets. In Kaheti as in every other location on the world enjoyed by tourists you will have plenty of shops who can sell you overpriced souvenirs, however, most common is on road stands selling vine, honey and “Chacha”.

Prices in grocery shops are the same as through whole Sakartvelo, however, take into consideration that bigger shops usually hold better price.

Tap water in Khaheti and in whole Sakartvelo is amazing. They have huge underground water reserves, mountain springs and water there is clear and tasty in most of the places. Thus, we recommend trying it and do not bother buying it from shops. Neither of our hosts advised against using water from tap for drinking.

Transportation. To get to Khaheti you can use train, bus or car. As it is one of the largest vine regions in Sakartvelo, it has great accessibility and you can use any other transport you feel like using.

In the region it is common to use public transportation such as minibuses or taxies which are the fastest way to get around the city. We preferred train as this time we only passed by this region.

Best of luck planning your holidays in Khaheti!
