Trekking in Wild Georgia - Khazbegi & Chaukhi Mountains

Zur Buchungsanfrage

Glacier, volcanoes and lakes in the wild Georgian mountains…


Journeying to Georgia’s most beautiful mountains is one of our unique tours, going deep into the remote and least-traveled regions in the higher Caucasus.

This exclusive trek was established by the outdoor and survival guide Gilad Sade, after many visits to the regions of the Caucasus.

This sort of a time travel includes participation in a traditional sacrificial ceremony uniquely found in the area, and sleeping in the picturesque villages of Khevsureti region, using the local transportation, trekking to an iceberg to the foot of a volcano, journeying to the lakes of Abudelauri and Chaukhi mountain range, snowy peaks, roaring rivers, isolated villages and a grande-finale in the capital Tbilisi.

A truly unforgettable journey in the kingdom of Georgia.
