On the first day we depart in the morning to Tusheti. Via the Abano mountain pass we enter Tusheti region. The trip by car takes about 8 hours. In the end of the afternoon we arrive in the first and main village of Tusheti and have some time to discover the village Omalo, it is an amazing setting high in the mountains. The village is surrounded by beautiful high snow tops. In the evening we will have a delicious traditional dinner. We will spend the night in a guesthouse.
From our guesthouse in Omalo we depart direct North to Dartlo, we continue our way west, towards Khevsureti. Depending on route and weather we stay in a guesthouse or in tents.
In the morning we depart and say farwell to the known world as we will probably not meet other people for the coming 2 days except our own group and maybe some lost hikers. With tents and other camping gear we ride West. From here we ride over trails of shepherds and cattle. On some place the terrain is harsh and difficult due to rocks, boulders and small rivers that we have to pass. In the evening we set up camp and prepare foot.
After breakfast we break up camp and continue our way throught the amazing mountains. Today is one of the longest day of riding in this tour. The distance is only 8 till 10 km but the terrain challenging. After a steep climb we arrive at the atsunta pass on 3500 meters attitude. After we go over the pass we set up camp and prepare a delicious camping style dinner.
