Kachreti beckons travelers with its rich history, cultural heritage, and above all, its ever-changing weather patterns. Each season bestows its unique charm upon the town, offering visitors a diverse range of experiences. Join us as we delve into the tapestry of Kachreti weather throughout the year.

Winter Whispers: December to February

As the sun takes a gentler approach, Kachreti occasionally awakens to a serene winter wonderland. Snow blankets the town, transforming it into a scene right out of a fairytale. The snow quickly melts leaving muddy side roads. The temperatures average around 8°C (46°F), inviting locals and travelers alike to embrace the days. Mostly, there is no snow and over the past few winters, days of snow can be counted on your fingers. Winter sports enthusiasts rejoice as the nearby Gombori Range becomes a playground for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. The cozy aroma of Georgian cuisine wafts through the air, enticing visitors to warm their souls with hearty meals and local wines.

Spring’s Embrace: March to May

As winter gracefully bows out, Kachreti weather welcomes the tender embrace of spring. The temperature rises to an average of 15°C (59°F), coaxing vibrant blossoms to paint the landscape with hues of pink, white, and gold. Ancient landmarks like the Alaverdi Monastery emerge from the winter slumber, inviting curious souls to explore their storied past. Nature awakens, coaxing adventurers to traverse the meandering trails and engage in outdoor escapades like horseback riding and hiking.

tropical plants thrive here too. There are olive trees, palm trees and my favourite, the banana plant. The one below was planted last year and after April, when it was a mere 30 inches tall, it was uncovered for the summer and has exploded into life with 7 beautiful pups which I will transplant as soon as the weather cools.

Summer’s Radiance: June to August

Summer descends upon Kachreti with a burst of energy, painting the canvas with vivid colors and vibrant life. The sun graces the town with warmth, as temperatures reach an average of 30°C (86°F). The sparkling Ziari lake becomes a sanctuary for relaxation, while the clear skies beckon adventure seekers to explore on bike or foot. Local markets bustle with activity, showcasing fresh produce and cultural treasures. It’s a season of celebration, as festivals and events invite visitors to immerse themselves in the vivacious spirit of the town.

Autumn’s Splendour: September to November

As summer bids farewell, Kachreti wather undergoes a breathtaking transformation, donning the golden hues of autumn. The temperature gently descends to around 18°C (64°F), creating an idyllic backdrop for exploration. Vineyards come alive with the harvest, offering wine enthusiasts a chance to savour exquisite flavors and participate in age-old grape stomping traditions. Cultural festivities weave a tapestry of local traditions, fostering connections between visitors and the town’s vibrant community.

From nearby Kodalo village on the road to Ziari and the Ziari lake, it is well worth to stop for a moment to take in the beauty of the Caucusus Mountains at the far side of the Alazani Valley.

Kachreti weather is a realm of ever-changing beauty, where the weather dances through the seasons, leaving behind a trail of captivating experiences.
