What will You See on Khikhata Mountain?

There is a large number of karst tunnels on the slopes of the mountain, which is itself covered in subalpine greenery. A geodesic marker has been installed at the peak of the mountain.

The eastern part of the mountain is called ketsebi (“pans” in Georgian). Sometimes it is considered a separate mountain and called Ketsebi Mountain. 

On the southern slopes of the mountain there are some caves where you will find traces of ancient human life – pottery shards and evidence of fires.

On the northern slope, towards Mravaldzali Village, there used to be a monastery, so the locals call the place mosalotsi (“for praying” in Georgian). 

Between Cholevi Cliff and the forest you will find the remains of a church. They say that the monks left this place and settled in a new church near the village, which is now Mravaldzali Saint George Church.

Nature on Khikhata Mountain

A number of rivers and decently-sized streams have their source on Khikhata Mountain, forming beautiful lakes at the bottom where you can pitch a tent and enjoy the serenity of nature. For those who prefer a more active kind of relaxation, the footpath to Khikhata Mountain, which starts in the village of Mravaldzali, should provide an interesting day hike.
