About the Area where the Rally will take place
The Rally crosses almost the whole country, it starts from the capital Tbilisi and covers the Eastern, the Western, the Southern and the Northern regions of Georgia. The finish location will be known a month before the start.
The mountains occupy thirds of Georgia. In the south there are the mountains of the Minor Caucasus (2,000–3,000 m above the sea level). In the north – the ridges of the Major Caucasus (up to 5,000 m above the sea level). The highest peak of Georgia is Mount Shakhra (5,068).The southern slopes of the Major Caucasus are crisscrossed by deep river valleys. There is also well developed system of karstic caves (over 470) with the largest of them, Novoafon (3.3 km long, 50,000 sq. km).
In the west of the country lies the Colchis lowland. From the West it borders on the Black Sea; from the east it is lined by the Suram (Lihsky) ridge which separates the western and eastern parts of Georgia. To the east of the Suram ridge is the Kartli plain, Ioria and Shirak plateaus and the Alazani valley.
Georgia's east is the fertile plains with historical areas Imereti, Kartli and Kakheti.
