Diklo village belongs to historical Tusheti. This is a real paradise for nature lovers. The most attractive trails for horse riding and trekking go through Tusheti. Stunning panoramic views around!
Harsh climate, difficult road conditions and isolation made the village empty in winter season, which starts sometimes in September and the passes are not open until next June-July. This depopulated village offers tranquility, freedom and fresh mountain beauty. The ruins of the Diklo fortress overlooks the village. There are some shepherd’s summer shelters, sheep and one simple guesthouse, with very nice and hospitable host offering the basic facilities, homemade dairy products and hot meals. It is available to make a camp nearby or to book overnight here in advance.
