KELITSADI LAKE TREKKING

3 Days/2 Nights

Pick-up from: Tbilisi/Gudauri/Stepantsminda*

Trekking grade: very difficult. 

Season: July - October

Great track for people willing to avoid more popular crowded trails and enjoy tranquility of Georgian highlands. This three-day hiking itinerary will take you to beautiful hidden alpine lakes in Khevi province and walk you through Truso Valley, with its abandoned medieval strongholds and tiny mountain villages.

Demanding and equally rewarding trek in less explored area of popular among trekkers - Khevi province of Georgia. The trail starts in well-known Truso valley with its colorful travertines and bubbling mineral lake, then goes up in straight vertical to Keli volcanic plateau bypassing Khorisar volcano and several very steep and rocky passes. Camping near the Kelitsadi lake adds up to overall unearthly experience of silent highlands. 

*Please indicate your preferred pick-up and drop-off locations in the comment at check-out.
