The Legvtakhevi (Tsavkisistskali) Waterfall

The closet place and the easiest way to cool off is to visit Legvtakhevi canyon with a waterfall, located in the center of old Tbilisi.

Name of the district comes from fig trees and it translates to (the gorge of fig trees) as there were many fig trees at that place. The venue is extremely popular with tourists, especially in summer, since the temperature is considerably low. It is noteworthy, that there are sulfur baths (Abanotubani) adjacent to the waterfall, so after sightseeing one can enjoy revitalizing and relaxing bubble baths as well.
