Likhi Range (Georgian: ლიხის ქედი, translit.: likhis kedi) or Surami Range (Georgian: სურამის ქედი, translit.: suramis kedi) is a mountain range in Georgia, a part of the Caucasus mountains. It connects the Greater Caucasus and Lesser Caucasus ranges.

The highest point is 1,926 m (6,319 ft) above sea level. The lowest and most important mountain pass is the Surami Pass at an elevation of 949 m (3,114 ft) which links eastern and western Georgia. A railroad (in the tunnel) runs through the pass, as well as the Zestaponi-Khashuri highway. A southern portion of the Likhi range was historically known as Ghado.
