Goderdzi ski resort- what it is?
Goderდzi is a new ski resort in the Republic of Adjara (Georgia), which began work in 2014. It is located only 113 km from Batumi and has an excellent potential for development. Below is information on this place.
The distance is small, only 113 km, but at the time of writing the report (November 2017), it is necessary to pawn about 4 hours on the road.
The first section of Batumi - Khulo (about 85 km), pretty decent asphalt (there are potholes from the heavy trucks), cleaned up, but sometimes it can be ice.
The second is Khulo-Goderdzi. There is only 1 km of asphalt, the rest of the road is a freezing primer, sometimes with a large track, the last 15 km is a strip about 2.5 meters wide pierced in the thickness of the snow, with the height of the walls sometimes above 3 meters.
To Khulo you can reach almost any transport with the appropriate rubber season. Above is only an SUV. The locals drive on old bus Transit and Sprinters by shoeing them in a chain, but this transport often rises and must be pushed out.
In Hulo, off-road taxis are also on duty with whom they can arrange for a transfer.
