Location

The tour will take place in Tbilisi, Jinvali Reservoir, Datvisjvari pass, Shatili, Mutso, Akhmeta, Abano pass, Tusheti National Park, Omalo, Pirikita valley, Telavi, and Mount Tsivi in Georgia.

Abano pass

Abano pass is a high mountain pass located in the region of Tusheti, Georgia, in the central part of the great Caucasus Mountains, at an elevation of 2,850 meters (9,350 feet) above the sea level. Abano pass is the highest drivable mountain pass in the Caucasus. The pass is driveable only by four-by-four cars. Conditions can change quickly and be harsh. Road closures can be frequent, so please check conditions before traveling to this area.

The road to reach the pass starts in Pshaveli and ends in Omalo. It has a length of 84.5 kilometers, but the expected driving time is over than 12 hours. The pass links the Georgian regions of Kakheti (south) and Tusheti (north). Tusheti is the most pristine and remote mountain region of Georgia at 900 to 4800 meters above the sea level. It is covered with ravines and two main river valleys, Gometseri Alazani and Pirikiti Alazani. It is one of the highest mountain roads of Europe.

The road over the pass was built in 1978 and is only open during the summer months from around May until to October, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Avalanches and heavy snowfalls can sometimes block some sections of the road and can be extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. The main settlement in the region is the Omalo Village (1850 meters above the sea level).

Due to Omalo's high mountain location on the northern slopes of the Greater Caucasus mountain range and the absence of well-maintained roads, it is largely isolated from the rest of Georgia for most of the year. Do not stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations while climbing circuitous roads at higher altitudes. This trail passes through remote areas, so you need to be prepared. Tusheti can be reached with a four-by-four vehicle and only a four-by-four one.

Please note that some homestays are often only open from July but a bit a preplanning will always ensure you have somewhere to stay. Four wheeling is an inherently dangerous activity and should not be attempted without the appropriate training and equipment. Tusheti's scenery is a spectacular mix of high, snow-covered peaks, deep gorges of Pirikiti, Gometseri, and Chanchakhovani, and steep, grassy hillsides with flocks of sheep and horses running wild through fields of irises.

Datvisjvari pass

Datvisjvari pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2,689 meters (8,822 feet) above the sea level, located in the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region of eastern Georgia. The road to the summit, located in the Greater Caucasus mountain range, is gravel, rocky, tippy, and bumpy at times. It links the historic highland village of Shatili and Gudani. The pass gets usually blocked by snow in October and becomes passable again in May.

Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous drop-offs. You might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that do not like heights. The road was built in 1970's. The serpentine road to the summit, also known as Datvisjvari pass, Datvisjvarisghele, or Datvis jvari (in English, bear's cross), is used for the transportation from one side to the other. The four-by-four vehicle is recommended. Stay away if you are scared of heights.

Omalo

Omalo is a principal village in the historical region of Tusheti, Georgia. Administratively, it is part of the Akhmeta District in Kakheti. It lies between the Greater Caucasus mountain range and the Pirikita range of Tusheti. Due to Omalo's high mountain location on the northern slopes of the Greater Caucasus mountain range and the absence of well-maintained roads, it is largely isolated from the rest of Georgia for most of the year.

The only access road is through the Abano pass at 2,850 meters (9,350 feet). The fortress of Keselo is a landmark in Zemo (upper) Omalo, this place served as a refuge for locals in the wartime.

Shatili

Shatili is a historic highland village in Georgia, near the border with Chechnya. It is located on the northern slope of the Greater Caucasus mountains in the historical Georgian province of Upper Khevsureti, which is now part of the modern-day region (mkhare) of Mtskheta-Mtianeti.

Food

You will be served daily breakfast and lunch pack included in the price. All dinners are not included. You may try delicious Georgian food and different Georgian drinks from lemonade to chacha in various cafes and restaurants. However, one of the best ways to experience and understand Georgian traditions of eating, drinking, and enjoying life is supra, the Georgian table. It should not always have a festive reason since every day can be festive in Georgia.

Gathering with friends and family is very important here. If the guests are attending supra, it is even merrier. If you are invited, do not be shy. You can try all the dishes, (it is a big pleasure for the hosts if their guests are full and happy), join the toast-master, take wine with the others, and say some warm words too. The order of toasts is not always the same. It varies from region to region, but generally, the first glass should be drained for god and peace, because both play very important roles for every Georgian.

As Georgians saying, supra is a Georgian academy where you can learn origins, traditions, folks, and dance of these people. If you learn the phrase "gmerts dideba chven mshvidoba" (may the god's greatness bring you peace), it would be really appreciated. Mainly and magic word on supra is "gaumarjos" (like a cheer).
