Tusheti – This is 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 valle
