Itinerary


Day to day

In the morning we pick you up from Batumi hotel and drive to Akhaltsikhe highway that leads to Machakhela gorge.

Make a stop near the confluence of Chorokhi and Machakhela rivers. Take 1.5 km easy walk to the ruins of Gvara fortress, built in the 6th c. The site is perfectly set to observe and control two gorges and two roads passing there. Enjoy beautiful panoramic views on the mountains and rivers.

After visiting Gvara fortress, on the way to the village Adjarisaghmarti, make a quick stop at the Gun monument, as it marks a gateway to the gorge which was primarily prominent for its 19th c gun-making traditions - manufacturing hand-made Machakhela guns.

Cross the river Squrdidi and continue the way. Have photo stop at Tskhemlara beautiful arched bridge, encounter villages Kveda and Zeda Chkhutuneti, see the waterfall and Machakhela ethnographic museum. It is noteworthy that there are interesting exhibits in the museum, that were characteristic of residents’ lives.

For lunch visit local Family. Taste homemade national food in the village house and learn about domestic life in Adjara mountains.

After lunch head to the direction of Chkheri bridge and waterfall. This section of the route goes along the narrow road across the steep slope of the gorge. During the trip, there can be seen impressive panoramic views over Machakhela gorge. From Chkheri Bridge the route goes down the bottom of the gorge, passing through Chkhutuneti fortress ruins and ends at the Qoqoleti arched bridge.

Take time and walk in the forest as far as you'd like. There are two trails Mtavarangelozi Mountain Trail and Kokoleti trail. Other passes are not marked, but very smooth and nice. Some wild animals could be seen here. Rangers control the area.

Return back to the city by the same route.

There are plenty of options to do in Adjara.

Let's be your host again!
