End of Amazing Jeep Tour in Tusheti – Enjoy Wild Life of Georgia



Tucked into Georgia’s far northeast corner, Tusheti has become a very popular summer hiking and horse-trekking area, but remains one of the country’s most fascinating and pristine high-mountain regions. The single road to Tusheti, over the nerve-jangling 2900m Abano Pass from Kakheti, is 4WD only and passable only from about early June to early October. Evidence of Tusheti’s old animist religion is plentiful in the form of stone shrines called Khatebi, decked with the horns of sacrificed goats or sheep, which women are not permitted to approach. Defensive koshkebi, centuries old, still stand in many villages.
Today most Tusheti folk only go up to Tusheti in summer, to graze their sheep or cattle, attend festivals, cater for tourists and generally reconnect with their roots. Many have winter homes around Akhmeta and Alvani in Kakheti.
Tusheti has two main river valleys – the Pirikiti Alazani and the more southerly Gomtsari (Tushetis) Alazani – which meet below Omalo, the biggest village, then flow east into Dagestan (Russia). The scenery everywhere is a spectacular mix of snow- covered rocky peaks, deep gorges and steep, grassy hillsides where distant flocks of sheep appear as slowly shifting patterns of white specks.

The Lek army was trying to take over the place for a long while. The legend states that the Leks sent their secret service man to the master in Dagestan to determine the weakest part of the fortification. There is a story about how the master builder of the fortress and the fortress itself were tied by an oath, but the local priest took the oath away so the builder committed treason. The secret was in one white stone, that was taken out of the fence and all the walls broke down. There are only the remains of the village left today.
