- GOMBORI PASS
At 1620 meters above sea level, Gombori road is one of the most picturesque roads in Georgia. It offers travellers incredible views of magnificent sceneries of Alazani valley and the Caucasus Mountains.
This 6th-century monastery is one of the most cherished religious monuments throughout Georgia. Rebuilt in the 11th century by Kvirike III of Kakheti, it was the tallest church in Georgian until the Sameba Cathedral was finished in 2004.
Besides its religious significance through history, Alaverdi Monastery is also famous for its wine cellar. Here, the monks have been making their own wine for as long as the monastery stands.
LUNCH IN NATURE
On our way to Tusheti, we’ll stop on the road to have lunch surrounded by the impressive nature of Georgian highlands.
Zemo Omalo will be our first stop in one of the most picturesque parts of mountainous Georgia Tusheti. Here you’ll be surrounded by unbelievable views of the Caucasus mountains, green at bottom and covered with snow on top.
This small medieval fortress just above the village of Omalo was used by Tushs to protect themselves from the invaders. Keselo was constructed during the Mongol invasion of Georgia in 1230s and originally had 13 towers. After centuries of neglect and erosion, in 2003 five towers were reconstructed.
GOMETSARI VALLEY & DOCHU
Dochu is the most beautiful village in all of Gometsari. It was mostly built during the late middle ages and is famous for its unique architecture which seamlessly follows the terrain. Houses in Dochu extrude from the slopes as if they were a continuation of the mountain itself.
After a busy day of exploration we will return to Zemo Omalo, where we’ll have dinner, taste local chacha/wine and relax at a guest house.

- PIRIKITI VALLEY & TUSHETI VILLAGES
Pirikiti valley is one of the two main valleys in Tusheti created by the river Alazani. It’s a beautiful piece of nature surrounded by snow-covered rocky peaks, deep gorges, tower-dotted villages and steep, grassy hillsides speckled with sheep. Here we will visit the summer-only settlements of Dartlo, Kvavlo, Chesho and Parsma. The Pirikiti valley is part of the Tusheti Protected Areas and a top destination for trekkers in Georgia.
In the evening we’ll return to Zemo Omalo and have dinner at the guest house.

- KVEMO OMALO
Kvemo Omalo is one of the busiest small towns in Tusheti. Located at 1890 meters above sea level, this village has a boarding school, a clinic and a visitor centre. It’s also one of the few places in Tusheti that’s settled all year around.
Shenako is a village on the south slope of Pirikiti ridge. It’s a summer settlement with only one family staying all year around. Unlike other Tush villages, there are no towers in Shenako instead, you can see old beautiful houses with unique balconies, stony roofs and stunning views from balconies. One of the only two churches in Tusheti is situated here - the Church of Holy Trinity.
Dirklo is one of the coldest villages of Georgia. It’s the best place to get the view of Diklosmta, a 4285 meters tall peak in the eastern part of the Caucasus Mountains. One of the beloved destinations in Diklo is the Pichekhi fortress. This ancient fortress standing right at the border with Russia offers amazing views of the valleys in Tusheti.
