The Prometheus Cave is located 20km northwest of Kutaisi, one of the most important historical and economic centers in the western Georgia.
The Prometheus Cave, also known as Kumistavi Cave, is about 11 km, but only 1.4km are open to visitors. The cave is truly impressive and well worth of a visit.
You will be walking along six large chambers followed by a 400m-long underground lake, illuminated by coloured lighting and classical music. the scenery is decorated with amazing stalactites and stalagmites, like you are inside a magic fairy world.
You can’t visit on your own. When you buy the ticket they will be putting you in a group with a guide and you walk along a concrete path from where you can see a wonderful array of curtains of stalactites, stalagmites, petrified waterfalls, cave pearls, underground rivers, and lakes.
There is also the option of a boat tour on one of the underground rivers.
The temperature inside is a constant +14°С, while humidity varies from 96% to 98%.
How to get there:
Take a bus from the main station to Tskaltubo, from there you have buses to the cave. It costs 1 GEL.
Entrance fee is 23GEL with an extra of 17 GEL if you want a boat trip. More info here.
