Khevsureti

Khevsureti

Khevsureti is another beautiful highland region of Georgia. Its villages Shatili, Arkhoti and Mutso were defensive towns, which is obvious by their impressive towers. Khevsurians are expert cattle-breeders, so their main diet is meat. Their most delicious meal is ‘Khinkali’, a boiled meat dumpling, which is now popular in all the regions of Georgia.

On the rocky slopes of Khevsureti, aurochs still wander. To hunt them takes a great deal of skill, since they are most difficult to chase. If one does manage to catch them, their meat is most delicious and rare. Khevsureti is also famous for its poetry lovers. Poetry festivals are frequently held, and, most of the participants can create the finest poetic samples spontaneously. Georgians are not the only people interested in preserving this prettiest of regions in its primordial form. The World Bank financed a major project to protect and preserve historical Shatili buildings, for future generations of Georgians and their guests.

The road to Khevsureti turns northeast off the Georgian Military Highway shortly before the Zhinvali Reservoir and runs up the Pshavis Aragvi valley towards the mountain gavel road. You need jeep 4x4WD to drive to Barisakho and Shatili. There are simple local guesthouses providing overnight accommodation and fresh local food.

Distance from Tbilisi is 160 km (6 h), from Mtskheta 140 km (5 h 30 min).
