About Lower Sharakhevi - Khmala Mountain - Bodakhevi

Best time to visit: All Season

The trail starts next to the river Aragvi, in the lower Sharakhevi gorge 850 MSL. From the river Aragvi the trail follows the ground road up to village Kvemo Sharakhevi 3.5 km. From the village, the trail is directed to south-east and goes to  Zenamkhari village throught the forest. There are ruins of ancient churches. At the 1700 MSL there are shepherd shelters with old wood stoves and some firewood as well so you can warm up and dry your clothes. Also you can easily find empty shelter to stay overnight in winter. But in summer they might be occupied by shepherds so it's better to have a tent with you.



After Zenamkhari village, trail goes to north-east and climbs up to 2160 above sea level over the mountain Khmala. In case of good weather, you can enjoy the stunning views on the mountain range Caucasus and the Queen of Khevi "Mkinvarsveri". The trail leads to the south-east direction on the alpine zone, then follows the gorge in the woods and descends to the village of Bodakhevi.

One other thing is there a road that leads to the beginning & end of the trail. Will we need to hire a 4wd or can a normal vehicle get us there?

I can see from the village Tianeti to the trailend Bodakhevi the road appears to be a small road. Do you know if that is ok for a normal vehicle to travel?

Yes you can get to the start and end point with any vehicle. All the roads are paved. Road from Bodakhevi to Tianeti was not paved by the time we went there but it's a normal gravel road, not a problem for small cars

ვიყავით ამ მარშრუტის შარახევი-ხმალას მონაკვეთზე. მარშრუტი საკმაოდ პრობლემატურია ვინაიდან ბილიკი ქოხებსა და შარახევის შუაში ძალიან გატყიურებულია და ძნელად იკითხება. არაა რეკომენდებული გამოუცდელი მოლაშქრეებისთვის. აღსანიშნავია რომ გზაზე არის კოლოსალური რაოდენობის და ძალიან ტკბილი ასკილი. ხედები ხმალას მთიდან მართლაც დიდებულია. შეიძლება მაგ მარშრუტის სხვადასხვა ვარიაციებით შესრულება. იგივე შარახევიდან ადის შემოვლითი გრუნტის გზა, რომელიც კარგია სასიარულოდ.
