Lower Sharakhevi - Khmala Mountain - Bodakhevi

Hiking

Description


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.
