About Sights – Prometheus Cave

Discovered in Imereti region in 1984, Prometheus Cave is one of Georgia’s natural wonders providing visitors with breathtaking examples of stalactites, stalagmites, curtains, petrified waterfalls, cave pearls, underground rivers, and lakes.

Khvamli Mountain is visible from Prometheus Cave and is the place where legend says that Prometheus was chained.

The 1060 meter walking route through the cave was upgraded in the summer of 2012 and visitors can also enjoy a 280 meter boat tour on an underground river.

How to get there? By bus/train from Tbilisi to Kutaisi, take mini bus from bus station next to Kutaisi Macdonald’s restaurant to Tskaltubo (წყალტუბო). At Tskaltubo bus terminal/market take taxi to the cave.

How much does it cost? A standard tour is 6 Lari and a boat tour 7 Lari. Georgians should show their I.D. cards to obtain a discount. Check opening times before going (usually closed Mondays).

    By the way, I think you mean Tsqaltubo (წყალტუბო), the spa resort town, not Tskhatubo. I don’t think there is any Tskhatubo…
