Tbilisi - Gombori Pass - Lechuri - Abano Pass - Omalo
We will depart Tbilisi very early in the morning. Our drive will take us over Gombori Pass to the foothills of the Great Caucasus. Once we reach the village of Lechuri, we will turn off the asphalt road and follow an unpaved mountain route towards Abano Pass - the highest driveable mountain pass in the Caucasus (2,826 m.a.s.l.). Prepare for an EXTREMELY scenic yet DIFFICULT ride. It will take us a minimum of 3 hours to climb to the top of the pass and another 2 or 3 hours to reach our guesthouse. Upon arrival in Tusheti, we will head to our guesthouse in Omalo before exploring the area. We will stroll around the village and visit Keselo Fortress for the spectacular views of Tusheti.
Day in Tusheti (Shenako, Diklo, Dartlo, Kvavlo)
Today, we will visit the picturesque St. George Church in Shenako village and hike to the ruins of the Diklo Fortress. We will also stop at the fortified village of Dartlo, hike to the remote Kvavlo, and explore nearby settlements. You will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the local cuisine. You can go on a horse ride (optional) in the afternoon too.
Omalo - Goat Panorama - Bochorna - Abano Pass - Lechuri - Tbilisi
Our last day in Tusheti will start with an excursion to the Goat Panorama - a scenic viewpoint from which lucky visitors might be able to spot wild mountain goats. Next, we will head to Bochorna - the highest settlement in Europe (2,345 m.a.s.l.). Finally, in the early afternoon, we will head back toward Tbilisi. Short breaks at scenic spots will help us to ease the ride. We will also stop to eat late lunch in a local restaurant. Return to Tbilisi late in the evening. The end of the tour.
