Off-Road Trails

Option I - Off-road to meet Bori the Hunter

Chkhari Village (in Teriola district) - the village can be reached by 8 kilometer long mountain path. On the way to the village, one can admire a beautiful view on incredible rocky mountains called Tsintskila. According to a legend, women and children used to hide form ennemy attacks in caves near mountain tops. Path leading to one of such caves is very narrow and dangerous, and can be ventured upon only with the use of special equipment. In those caves, archeologists have found Neanderthals' bones. From the caves one can also admire a great panorama: the Khvamli Mountain, Raczynski and Svanski Peaks, the Caucasus, the Kolchida Valley and the Tkibuli Lake with its small islands. Bori offers a peaceful rest in a forest clearing, and if you are not really eager to go back to civilized world just yet, he is also one of the best mountain guides around. He will take you on a horse ride featuring local caves, waterfalls and mountain roads. He can host you overnight, or you can go back to Kutaisi in the evening.

Option II - Off-road towards the Zekari Pass

The Zekari Pass is located 2226 meters above the sea level, on the border of two regions: Imereti and Samcche-Djavacheti. On the way form Imeretia, one passes trough the city of Bagdati and the Sairme sanatory. Behind the sanatory begins a dirt path. It leads trough a forest, and to mountain path offering beautiful views on the Lesser Caucasus, with its meadows, hills and shepherds' huts. From the Zekari Pass, the path leads through Abastumani (a small sanatory with hot springs and an astronomic observatory) to Achalciche and Varda. Our tip: Zekari Pass is a perfect place to go to on a hot day, for a picnic and a good rest in the midst of nature.
