Bike Tour: Juta - Chiukhi - Abudelauri

The Juta - Chiukhi - Abudelauri cycling route is difficult, with a total gain of 1300 meters, and is not recommended for beginners.


The tour starts from the village of Juta and follows the trail up to the so-called main camp, next to the Juta Lake. At the camp, the route turns left and heads towards a Chiukhi Pass. From here, the trail starts to descend sharply and arrives at the famous Abudelauri Lakes.

The route can be completed in 1-2 days.

The length of the trail is 15 km, and it is loaded with beautiful water bodies and spectacular views. The colourful lakes of Abudelauri stand out, namely, the White, Blue, and Green lakes. The lakes are covered with snow until the middle of May, and in August their water levels decrease significantly.

The Chiukhi Massif and mountain pass are magnificent. They are some of the truly spectacular places in the entire Caucasus. The village of Juta is also quite picturesque, located by the Snostskali River Valley, at an altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level.

Things to Consider

Make sure you have all the necessary equipment, including knee pads, a helmet, gloves, elbow pads, a camera, a first aid kit, water, food and spare parts.

The best time to tackle the Juta - Chiukhi - Abudelauri bike tour is from the second half of July to the beginning of October (before the first snowfall).
