Zhabeshi – Hadishi

The Zhabeshi-Adishi hiking route is of moderate difficulty and full of excitement and pleasant surprises. It runs for 12 kilometers and should take 5-6 hours to complete.


The route starts in Zhabeshi, a village in Mestia municipality, which is accessible by car.

Zhabeshi is situated on the banks of the Mulkhra River, 1,680 meters above sea level.

The road from Zhabeshi ascends up to a mountain plateau, 2,400 meters above sea level, passing through Tetnuldi ski resort along the way. The ski runs here include the longest in the South Caucasus, at 9.5 kilometers, and the longest vertical descent at 1.7 kilometers. For winter sports lovers, this is a mouthwatering prospect.

From there, it is about four kilometers to the village of Adishi, which sits 2,100 meters above sea level.

Adishi (Hadishi)

Adishi is a village in Mestia Municipality and is widely known as the most beautiful settlement on the Аdishchala tributary of the Enguri River. One of its appealing features is the fact the village is completely invisible until you reach the beginning of it, leaving visitors speechless as they enter this tucked-away delight.

Аdishi is an ancient village, with well-preserved Svan towers, together with three churches from the 10th-12th centuries. The artwork on the walls of its churches exemplifies the so-called Svan school of medieval Georgian monumental painting.

In Аdishi, visitors stay at family hotels or otherwise camp near the village, next to the water. Meanwhile, locals raise cattle and thus visitors can also expect to sample the freshest possible dairy produce.
