Sights to Visit


Day to day

Tskhrajvari Viewpoint

8:30 AM - pickup from Tbilisi. Drive towards mountain village Shovi (1650 m. above sea level) in Racha, approx... 5.5 hours. If weather is good (good visibility) on the way we make a small detour (approx.. 2 km hike) towards the Tskhrajvari viewpoint (Georgian – “Nine Crosses” ), situated on the Western slope of Nakerala range, at about 1350 m above sea level, it offers breathtaking panoramic views. Our end point resort Shovi is famous for its mineral water springs, some of which are naturally sparkling and untouched pine forests surrounding the whole area.
Overnight in hotel in Shovi.

Buba Glacier

Hiking distance: 13 km (there and back), 7 hours.
Difficulty level: medium.

Strat at 8:30 AM. Scenic day hike that starts from Shovi resort and follows up Buba’s Tskali gorge towards the glacier. Not very demanding trail, with some great panoramic views and number of mineral springs.

"<strongUdziro Lake

Hiking distance: 11 km, 9-10 hours
Difficulty level: hard

Start at 8:00 AM. Start walking up through the pine forest from Shovi, towards the alpine valley and Geske pass at 3070 m. Crossing the pass is the most physically demanding part of the trail, as you gain quite a bit of elevation (1500m in vertical) although it doesn’t require any special equipment or mountaineering skills. The last part of the climb is considerably steep. After finally reaching the pass, we slowly descend towards the lake where we camp for overnight.

Trail to Glola

Hiking distance: 8 km, 5-6 hours
Difficulty level: medium

Wake up at 8:00 AM, after having a breakfast and enjoying the beautiful views of Caucasus (if weather is good, we can even see peaks of Svaneti such as Shkhara, Ushba and Tetnuldi), start tracking towards the Glola village, which lies just 4 km from Shovi, where we started trekking. While this day is relatively easier, there is still a lot of elevation to loose, that puts more strain to the knees, so keep in mind it’s still a demanding hike, not suitable for everyone. Pick-up from village Glola – drive back to Hotel in Shovi. Dinner and overnight in hotel.


Hiking: 13 km, apprx. 6 hours.

Start at 9:00 AM. On our last trekking day, we are going to visit some of the most beautiful mountain villages in upper Racha, including Chiora, Ghebi – which has become a basecamp for many interesting off-the beaten hikes and beautiful village Gona, often called as ‘Georgian Switzerland’ known for its close-up views of Caucasus summits. From village Patara Ghebi, we'll take a hike to Lagora Huts, at the base of Shoda-Kedela mountains.

In the evening, return to the guesthouse
