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.

The cave is not open on Mondays. Opening times: from November to April – from 10 am to 5 pm, from May to August from 10 am to 6 pm, in September and October from 10 am to 5:30 pm.

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

    Hi there, My Friend and i are planning to visit Georgia this coming June, and we are both excited to see Prometheus Cave. My concern is, are there any easy and available rides back to Tbilisi from here? Im just worried that we might have a problem getting back to the main city after. Your reply would be very much apreciated, Thanks!

    Great info, additionally if you don’t want to take a cab for 5lari ,nor, walk or hitchhike, there is a microbus #42 that takes you there for 2lari. The stop is behind the big glass building and market. We found it by asking for 42.

Alas ir nedaudz vairāk kā kilometru garas, skaisti izgaismotas, fonā skan klasiskā mūzika, visur izbūvētas trepītes, celiņi, nekur nevar pazust. Alas beigās ir iespēja izbraukt ar laivu pa pazemes upīti (nav gan garš izbrauciens, bet jautrs, jūties kā Golums no Gredzenu pavēlnieka). Tur mēs paši arī esam bijuši, un es iesaku aizbraukt atvēsināties.. […]
