It's not your last chance, because you can still join us on the very last moment of departure to Tusheti around 18th of July.
We start from Tbilisi, the capitol of Georgia. Two other Guys from Switzerland will arrive on July,16th in Tbilisi. We spare a day for the town and start the Journey on July, 18th, with a trip through the wineyard of Georgia, Kakheti to the Winter settlement of the Tushetians, Alvani.
We will have a good typical Georgian dinner there with some good wines. On 19th we start the difficult road via the Abano-Pass of 2900 m to Tusheti, with a short stop in the biggest village Omalo. This road takes us 8 to 10 hours, depending on the weather conditions, but the scenery of the wild mountains will indeed impress you.
We follow the Tusheti Alazani River to Dartlo, where we stay at the Guesthouse of Manana. Next day we make a short walk to the next village Cesho, and further on to the villages Parsma and Girevi with its impressing ancient Defendstowers.
Here we saddle our horses and cross the mountain range to Tsova Tusheti, a beautiful wide valley with sheep and dogs and rough herdsmen. We camp with the herdsmen and try to catch some Brown trouts in the evening. If you do not like horse riding, you of course may hiking. We take your luggage on the horseback.
We follow the tiny pathes to Jvarboseli and the Eagle-nest-like small village of Dochu on the rock with a magnificent view down the river. We cross the range again to Cesho and change horses to a 4WD to go to the Northern villages of Shenako and Diklo close to the Dagestanian border.
We have to be back in Tbilisi on August, 1st.
Join the freedom of Tushetis mountain world with us.
