Georgia - Caucasus Trekking

Georgia - Caucasus Trekking


From £2,305
Altitude 3,430m Grade: T3

Trek through three ancient provinces and stay with the local people then discover Mtshketa.

Stretching from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea, the Caucasus Mountains form a natural barrier between Georgia and Russia to the north. Our Caucasus trekking itinerary takes you deep into the remote provinces of Khevi, Khevsureti and Tusheti, some of the most unspoilt regions of the Caucasus range where tourism is still very much in its infancy. Four wheel drive tracks take us deep into the mountains and on foot, with pony support we penetrate even deeper, crossing several high passes, and visiting remote and ancient villages and fortifications as we go. While most nights are spent camping in some beautiful locations, on occasions we will be the guests of the local people - a rare opportunity to meet then and understand their way of life.

Time is also set aside to explore the capital of Tbilisi and the old capital of Mtskheta, with its 6th Century Jvari church and 11th Century cathedral.

  • Repatriation
  • The altitude that you are expected to attain
  • The location especially when travelling to Antarctica
  • Grade of trek/climb/expedition
  • Medical cover

When they do, we rely on Global Rescue to provide our clients with medical, security, travel risk and crisis response services. Without a membership, an emergency evacuation could cost over $100,000.

Road transport was very good, excellent drivers. Walking wasn't arduous, and horses carrying gear was great. Flowers and scenery magic! Company great too.
