Winter colors
Feb. 2020
A very beautiful place where you can spend some time taking marvelous photos. It's located north east of Tbilisi, where you can find it on your journey to the east towards Gori or Gudauri. The view are widely different depending on the season. I very much enjoyed the winter colors in february.

Beautiful and serene
Jun. 2019
Located on the military highway north of Tbilisi, the reservoir was created in the Soviet era by constructing a dam on the Aragvi river. The W-shaped reservoir provides drinking water to Tbilisi and the nearby dam generates hydroelectric power. Both get their name from the nearby city of Jinvali which was an important trading city in the ancient times.

The reservoir is beautiful and serene with turquoise blue waters. It offers many photo opportunities. Creation of the reservoir submerged many ancient archaelogical sites and as per our guide, the tops of some of these are still visible when the water level is low.

A fortress complex is situated on the banks of the reservoir and there is a small tourist oriented market across the road.

The reservoir is beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

We stopped by Jinvali water reservour before going to Gudauri a ski resort at the Caucasus Mountain range. The view of the dam was breathtaking. It is a spot on beauty.
There are few shops where you can get nice warm shoes, gloves and some souvenir before driving off to the mountains.
