Your adventure begins in the resort of Lebarde, which is a balneological and climatic resort whose mineral waters have therapeutic properties.
The route from Lebarde takes you through both forest and alpine meadows on your way to a pair of lakes at 2,300 and 2,400 feet above sea level respectively. The hike from the resort to the first of these lakes is 10 kilometres.
The area around the lakes makes an ideal spot for camping at the end of your first day.
The next stop on your hike is the Askhi Limestone Massif, which acts as the border between western Samegrelo and Lechkhumi. Along the way to the massif, you’ll find shepherds’ summer huts, where you can spend the night.
The plateau is 2,000 to 2,100 metres above sea level, boasting beautiful subalpine and alpine meadows where it is also possible to camp.
Your adventure eventually ends at Zubi Village, which is located 30 kilometres from the Askhi Massif. The village is famous for a rare variety of Georgian red wine grapes: Usakhelouri. Why not celebrate your successful hike with a glass?
