In the morning, we will drive towards historical province of western Georgia – Samegrelo.
On the way, we will make a detour to Okatse Canyon, near the village Gordi and take a short (8 km) but very scenic hike. The first part of the walk takes you through historical Dadiani forest and the ruins of the 18th century palace. Soon after, the path descends down to the canyon and continues on a hanging walkway that runs along the cliff until reaching the observation deck with panoramic view.
After the walk, we will get back to the visitor’s center and drive another hour and half to Mukhuri.
Mukhuri is a small, sleepy village located at the foothills of Egrisi mountains and planned Samegrelo National Park, in the valley of Khobistkali river. Due to its surrounding lush greenery and fresh mountain air, Mukhuri is considered to be one of the centers of Georgian beekeeping.
After dinner at the guesthouse, there will be a group meeting with presentation and final QA concerning your upcoming trekking trip.
Overnight in Mukhuri.
