We throughly enjoyed our trip to Dashbash canyon. It was interesting seeing a lesser known part of Georgia. Unfortunately it had rained the day before so it was muddy getting down but it was a lovely spot. Levan was a great guide. We particularly enjoyed a local spot where we stopped for a delicious and very reasonably priced lunch.
