Sairme - is a balneological – climatic resort which is distinguished with its mountain climate, coniferous and deciduous forests and is rich in healing mineral and thermal water deposits. Because of the results of curing diseases, Sairme is also called a urological resort. Waters of Sairme are used to treat: inflammatory and calculus diseases of the gall-bladder, biliary ducts and urinary system, chronic inflammation of the liver, the small and the large intestines. Sairme mineral water causes the intensification of urination. As a result, calcium salts are able to work against the inflammation. Injured parts and swelling are cured, inflammation disappears and the body gets its normal condition. Due to the calcium salts, mineral water of Sairme is unique and has no analogues in the world.
Sairme is located approximately 50 meters away from Kutaisi, in a picturesque gorge overlooked by centuries-old trees, 950 meters above sea level. In the depth of Sairme's coniferous - deciduous forests, mineral water consisting of hydrocarbonate, calcium and sodium, goes through the natural filtration in the centuries-old rocks. Then it mixes with the ground-water in the surface layers of the rocks. This is the way how low mineralized water 'Sairme' is formed.
The first information about Sairme's waters can be found in the sources of the 90–ies of the nineteenth century. In the wood, hunters noticed the place where deer often gathered. They followed a wounded deer and found a spring which flowed over red, rusty stones and everything around it was white because of salt. Deer got the salt and the water in turns. That was the reason why the place was called 'Sairme'. Shepherds paid attention to the place too and discovered another unusual thing - about 3 km away from the spring of deer, the grass was always green. The spot didn't cover with snow and the ground got dry in a few minutes after the rain. The secret of the magic valley was disclosed in the 20th century, when geologists discovered hot mineral water in the depth of the earth. Sairme is an ideal place of the alpine zone of the Lesser Caucasus. It borders Borjomi – Kharagauli National Park in the Southeast. The height of the centuries-old trees exceeds 50 meters and their diameters are more than a meter. In this area there are many ancient churches and monasteries, which create an extraordinary environment for treatment and rest with the combination of the beauty of the nature. more...
