If you’re looking for a multi-day trekking experience that allows you to soak in the many charms of this region, we’ve got the perfect itinerary for you!

The First Day: Datvisjvari to Khakhabo

One of the greatest options to start your journey in Khevsureti is to take 13 kilometres long, Datvisjvari - Khakhabo path, connecting the northern and southern parts of Khevsureti.

From Datvisjvari you will hike down to place Tsubrovani and then follow the path leading up to Chanchakhi Pass, from the pass you will continue the way through Chanchakhistskali Valley and arrive at the fortress-village of Khakhabo. The village is almost abandoned and only a few people continue to live there. Here you will have the opportunity to stay the night in the family guesthouse or camp near the village.

The Second Day: Khakhabo to Ardoti

This day of the journey is gonna be short, and you will only need to cover 8 km. From Khakhabo you will follow the trail to the mouth of the Andakistskali River. Here you must turn left, and after about two kilometres, you will reach the lovely village of Ardoti, where you can book a stay at the family guesthouse or camp for the night.

The Third Day: Ardoti, Mutso, and Shatili

From Ardoti, the path joins with a main road, which leads to the fortified village of Mutso. This incredible village had a strong strategic location and for centuries was controlling the important roads coming from the north. 

On the road from Mutso to Shatili, are the Anatori Tombs. These tombs are 18th-century monuments with a tragic history. The local village was overcome with a serious disease. The infected people voluntarily self-isolated themselves to protect their community, retreating to the tombs and spending their last days there. 

From the Anatori Tombs, the road follows the Arghuni River to Shatili, a beautiful village with around 60 tower fortresses from the 10th and 11th centuries. Here you can spend the night after completing your three-day trek.
