Hi There, your GPS-Track of sheperds trail has a "non-official" part. From 41.82359°N, 43.13649°E where it leaves the blue blazes until the sheperds hut on 41.84575°N, 43.14219°E where it gets to yellow blazes, there is no path at all, hundreds of fallen trees, dense vegetation and a overgrown creek. Perhaps you should add a warning at least. Official path follows the red blazes from Amarati shelter and continues with yellow blazes north of it. Thank you! :)

Hi Christian, Thank you for reporting the problem. We've not hiked on this track for a long time and there might be some issues. We will take a closer look and fix the problem. Thank you again and have a great time in Georgia

Hi, I have hiked the trail from the Lomismta shelter to the Amarati Shelter and can agree on the statement from Christian. The GPX track is at this part incorrect and not hikable.
The traveller should follow at a shepherds hut the marked yellow trail to the right and hike to the ridge, then follow the red marks to the left and pass mount Megrukhi and Mount Amarati and proceed to the shelter. The way is longer than the GPX track, but with no major technical problems.
The GPX track, as described by other hikers, is at this location unpassable. There are lots of fallen trees, often there is no path, and the ascent is extremely steep.
Please add a warning that the GPX track should not be followed at that spot. Thanks for your support.

Dear Benjamin, Thank you for bringing this up to us. We updated the GPX file and it would be great if you could help on checking whether we got it right?

Thank you in advance
