My name is Hector and together with my partner Xenia are visiting the Borjomi-Kharagauli park in a few weeks. We were interested in doing the footprint trail considering the time we have there, but we were wondering if there is a way to get back to Borjomi/Likani once you reach the end of the trail in Kvabiskhevi . Or do you have to walk it back?

Thanks and regards,

Hello Hector,
Kvabiskhevi village is on the main road so it's easy to find some transport. You can hitchhike easily, or find some minibus coming from Akhaltsikhe. If you would like to be more confident, you can get a phone number of some local taxi and call him when you get close to the Kvabiskhevi. You can get a taxi phone number in the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park Visitor Center.

Have a nice trip

Amazing hike, the gorge is very beautiful, we did the hike in start of July the weather was excellent, the views from above are gorgeous.
A few notes on the trail.
Total climbs is 800 m, total decent 800 m however there is a part in the hike where the decent is very fast the angle of decent is very steap so be aware..
