Hostel Balda run by the Bartia family has a lot to offer. Apart from the friendly family atmosphere, there is a gazebo, where the family rests and eats after work and a stream of fresh mountain water for drinking. Hostel Balda is the perfect spot to continue your journey up to Balde canyon and Kaghu waterfall. If you want to get an adrenaline rush, go with Bartua on an off road drive in a Zil-131 6×6 through the Megrelian wilderness. They will take you on a mountain trail which leads to the breathtaking waterfalls Toba and Oniore. The whole family is so kind and helpful that even the fact that they speak only Georgian and Russian won’t be a problem.
