Zhinvali (Jinvali) water reservoir, also known as a lake is located on the Georgian Military Highway. Soviets constructed the dam in the 1980s. As Tbilisi was growing rapidly, there was a need of a new water supply. Government decided that the Aragvi Gorge rich with glacier water was the perfect spot.
How to get there :
Take a private car going to Jinvali Water Reservoir, 40 km to the North from Tbilisi Georgia
Zhinvali, also Jinvali, is an artificial water reservoir located on the river Aragvi in Georgia. The building of the hydroelectric dam formed the Zhinvali Reservoir. The dam has been built in 1986.
You have probably noticed this perfect blue surface lake, if traveled to Gudauri or mount Kazbegi (Gergeti church) via Georgian military road. If not, and you are still planing your trip to this area, the chances are you will make a stop at Ananuri castle complex (which is located near Zhinvali water reservoir), but there is a small watching platform when approaching from Tbilisi – a perfect place for a group photo or as I prefer – landscape photography.
This place is perfect place to relax and take a lot of yoga pose. Beautiful time to unwind and relax. I recommend this place to visit in Georgia you will enjoy for sure.

“He is very personable, friendly, and above all, so passionate about traveling and sharing his country to us that his enthusiasm overflows like water from a ruptured fire hydrant. As a guest, I can sense his excitement and it is infectious. I’ll leave the tour feeling like I just hung out with a long time friend and I can’t wait to go back. If all tour guides are GREAT like Mama Gia, I’d gladly take more tours!”
