To & From Tbilisi
Tkibuli is situated 250 km from Tbilisi (Tbilisi - Batumi highway). It is on the main road to Racha region (Terjola-Tkibuli [40 km], Kutaisi-Tkibuli-Ambrolauri). If you are going to Tkibuli, it is better to choose the road going through Terjola. The road going through Kutaisi looks better on the map but in fact it is in very poor condition.
