near Omalo, Akhmetis Raioni (Georgia)

Great 5-day walk connecting some of the nicest mountain villages in Georgia and crossing 3431 meters high Atsunta pass. My favourite part is behind Atsunta pass, walking on Khidotani ridge with great views in all directions..

    Hello, once in Shatili, you dont have to return to Omalo as there is a marshrutka from Shatili to Tbilisi.
    However, in October is Tusheti quite deserted as most shepherds leave it at the end of September.

    Beautiful trek, first few days are still on dirt track which is too bad. The pass is beautiful and the descent after that even more so

    Yes, road to Omalo is already open. However, Atsunta pass is usually not passable at this period, still too much snow on the trail.

    Do you know if the road to Omalo is already open this year or when will it be open? We are planning to drive there (in 4x4 of course) around 10th of June so still a month to go but I am anxious to learn about conditions. Any information very warmly welcome!

    Hi madzik, bad news. The river took some 500 meters of the road behind the rangers station, they are working on it, but the road is still not open yet. By current plans, it will be made accesible in the early June

  • madzik03 May 21, 2017

    Thank you so so much! I appreciate your help. I plan to be there around the 10th of June. Could you please let me know how the situation evolves?
    Once again many thanks!

    Hi Jozef! I wanted to thank you for your amazing work with (couldnt post it there as i am not a facebook user).

    I hiked for a week in Tusheti and Khevsureti in august. I did the Omalo-Shatili trek and then my own combination of several of your tracks (Kistani-Kalatano-Akhielli-Roshka pass-Sadzelisghele pass-Abudelauri-Chaukhi-Juta) and your page has helped a great deal to prepare it all.

    Amazing work.
    All the best.
