The tour starts in the village of Omalo, which is in Tusheti, on the banks of the northern Alazani River, 1,880 meters above sea level. From here, it is 22.5 kilometers to Jvarboseli, which is accessible by a paved road there, albeit your trip will be more adventurous and inspiring if you take the walking path from Omalo to Ghele Pass, and then cross Gogorata Mountain, passing over the Makratela Range and descending to Jvarboseli. Here, you can spend the night in a family hotel or at the Vardavake campsite.
From Jvarboseli, you head toward the village of Alisgori. Here, you can revel in an amazing view of the whole valley. Then, from Sajinchvlo, descend into the Alazani Valley to find yourself at the Finnish shelter in Alaznistavi where you can spend your second night. The journey from Jvarboseli to Alaznistavi is 20 kilometers, with the latter being a stunning historical and geographical area in Tusheti, where Tushetian shepherds have been herding sheep since ancient times.
Expect some physical challenges along this 16-kilometer route, as you will sometimes have to climb steep inclines. From Alaznistavi, you head towards Sakorno Pass, from where you descend into Tsiplovana Valley. It is not advised to set up camp in tis valley, so you should instead head to Masara Mountain and camp there.
The main sources of difficulty in this 17-kilometer route are the paths carved into the cliff, which take you from Masara to Rkinismta. From there, you can already see Pankisi Gorge.
You will then descend from Rkinismta to the village of Tbatana, where you can take a car to Jokolo.
