Kvemo Kartli is a region in southeast Georgia. Bordered by Kakheti from the east, Shida Kartli from the north, Javakheti from the west, and Armenia and Azerbaijan from the south. The administrative center of the region is the city Rustavi. The main river of the area is Mtkvari. The last part of the region is the lowland, Kura valley, which here is very wide. Here are cities – Rustavi, Marneuli and Gardabani. Agriculture is very highly developed in the valley, but from a tourist point of view, the lowland of Kvemo Kartli is not interesting at all. The western part, which is bordered by the Trialeti range from the north and Samsari and Javakheti range from the west, is much more interesting, and here in gorges covered by deep forests are the most exciting places of the area, but tourist infrastructure is not developed. Kvemo Kartli is very close to Tbilisi. There can be organized cultural tours, archaeological tours, naturalist tours and horse riding tours in Algeti national park, adventure tours and canyoning in Birtvisi canyon, and hiking tours.
