Sea, sunshine, a beautiful coastline – those are the things that you imagine when you hear the word “Adjara”, but these are not the only things that should spring to mind. This part of Georgia has another face too.

This village is part of the municipality of Khulo. The road leading to the village isn’t great so it is better to use an off-road vehicle to get there. It’s located on the Northern face of the Meskheti Ridge, on the right side of the Acharistskali River, 800 meters above sea level.

The village has its own public school and library and it has a population of only about 1000 people. The main trade of the local population is cattle-breeding.

The locals are very sociable and easy to talk to, so you can ask them anything about this location and get great advice about the must-see places around Didajara.

By the way, Didajara is the last populated place on the road to Green Lake – the most beautiful lake in the alpine region of Adjara. We will tell you about the magic of this special place in the second part of “Seasons – Photo Diary”.
