Itinerary


Day to day

Driving distance: 180 km, walking distance: 5 km, elevation difference - 300 m, duration: 3-4 h, difficulty: easy

The guide will meet you at Kutaisi hotel. As the tour is private, we start upon your convenience.

Pick lunch boxes and head from Kutaisi to Gvirishi through the villages across Rioni gorge. Lechkhumi region is known for the cultivation of wheat. The name of the village and the waterfall Gvirishi are related to the endemic wheat species.

First visit Zanduri house, is an ethno-village presented in a small space that includes a wine cellar, a barn, and a lovely family. Walk in a beautiful apple garden, listen to the host’s story about wheat and wine production traditions, taste natural apple juice, honey and bio wine from this beautiful garden and continue our trip to Gvirishi waterfall.

The waterfall is located on a rocky mountain massif, 4 kilometers away from the village. Observe 25 meters height cascade from the glass panoramic platform. 

Continue the way to the village Lailashi. There is 19th-century synagogue in the village. One of the most popular attractions here is a small outdoor pool that overlooks Lajanuri Dam and creates unique landscape for photography lovers. The pool water is cold and worth visiting, especially in hot weather. 

Here, nearby the pool, we suggest making an outdoor lunch. 

After lunch, drive to the verge of Lechkhumi and Racha regions, Sairme Pillars. Start 5 km walk to the pillars (double-way up & downhill). If we are lucky, we might find and collect some mushrooms on a path. 

Next stop is Tsageri, the administrative center of Lechkhumi region. Visit a small park and market, where we can buy locally produced salt: that is mix of spices and a secret ingredient, which gives your dishes an amazing flavor.

At the end of the day arrive to Green Lake, Kulbaki village and visit family trout farm. The word Lechkhumi means fishing place. Let’s catch a fish on spot and enjoy delicious mushrooms picked up in Sairme forest for dinner.

Dinner and overnight at the family hotel in Kulbak.

Breakfast at the Kulbaki Hotel. Morning hike around Kulbak Lake, walking in the small forest-park is highly recommended. 

Grab meal packages and drive approximately 1 hour to the mystical Khvamli rocks. The 150-300 meters high and 10 kilometers wide rocky massif is located at an altitude of 2002 meters. The road ends near St. George's church. The walking path takes about 3 hours and the ascents are steep, but rewording. The breathtaking panoramic views and fresh air of the alpine zone helps you to cover the distance in a pleasant mood. 

St. George's Cathedral dates back to the 12th century and is a hall church architecture. Liturgies are held only on holidays. 

Continue the way to main destination, the peak of Mayak, which is considered as the highest point of the Khvamli rock massif - 2002 m above sea level. If the weather is fine, we might catch a glimpse of the Black Sea. 

Light outdoor lunch break is recommended here.

It takes about one hour to reach Okureshi village from Khvamli rock. There are small villages splattered at the foothills of the rock:  Okureshi, Tvishi, Usakhelo. Unique minerals and rare grapes are grown on this land. Usakhelouri is the most expensive wine, produced in this micro-zone with limited addition. 

Let’s visit a family, that makes this unique type of wine! Local host will serve tasting of two type of wines: Tsolikauri and Usakhelouri, and we can enjoy delicious Lechkhumian dishes prepared by the hostess. In this warm family environment, we recall the beautiful paths we walked on a tour. 

On this warm note continue back to Kutaisi hotel.
