In Khevsureti, hiking is a journey into the past, in an environment where ancient traditions, customs, and rituals are still alive today. 

Gudani Village

The majority of the customs of Khevsurs were “born” in Gudani village in southern Khevsureti. The clothing of the Khevsurs, their equipment, their customary law, and holidays all originate from Gudani. The most important place of worship in Khevsureti is the Gudani Cross, which was the religious center of all of Khevsureti. For centuries, difficult national cases would be discussed there, and debates would go on about whether to keep or change judicial norms. 

Gudani village is 75 kilometers away from Dusheti city, 1,720 meters above sea level. The route from Gudani to Roshka is one of the shortest, but most impressive ones. Take an 11-kilometer dirt road from Gudani to Ukankhadu village, 2,000 kilometers above sea level, and from there, continue on foot. 

The path slowly attains greater difficulty and in about five kilometers you reach Tanie Pass. Tanie pass is on the main range of the Caucasus Mountains and is considered one of the most difficult hiking areas in Georgia. From the pass, there is an amazing view of southern Khevsureti and the Khevsureti Aragvi River.

Roshka Village

Soon enough, you arrive at an intersection of ridges and continue along the ridge to the west. At certain points, the path crosses the ridge to the slope to the south.

After about 10 kilometers lies Boghovacho (Arkhoti) pass, where a dirt road heads down into Arkhoti Valley. Cross through the Roshkistskali river valley and the road continues to the village of Roshka, 2,000 meters above sea level. 

Erratic rocks are scattered across Roshka village, two of which are among the largest erratic rocks in the world.
