Early departure from Tbilisi through the Georgian Military Highway towards Khevsureti region in the north of Georgia. First stop at Barisakho village (100km from Tbilisi) – the largest village of khevsureti, resides about 70 families. 2 km past Barisakho there is a small village - Korsha, where we will visit small ethnographic museum of Khevsur life made by means of the local villagers. The museum contains unique armours and weapons, domestic and agricultural implements and photographs.

Continue our route over the high Datvisjvari Pass (2677m above the sea level). After passing the Datvisjvari Pass we drive abandoned villages Lebaiskari and Kistani, where you can explore the medieval fortresses and watchtowers. In 15 km from Kistani we will reach the village Shatili, located on the bank of Argun River 1400m above the sea level, near the border with Chechnya. For many centuries it served to defend northern passes in the Caucasus leading to Georgia.

Breakfast at the local guesthouse;
Shatili sightseeing walking tour (around 2-3 hours).
Departure to Anatori abandoned village (4km away from Shatili). It’s called “dead village”, because nobody lives here for a long time. The whole population died for the reason of some illness that the locals called “Zhami” and one the way you can see many cemeteries.
From Anatori we continue way to Mutso village (9km away), located on the rocky hill above Andoki River at 1880m above sea level. The village almost completely abandoned more than a century ago, is a home to approximately 30 medieval fortified dwelling units arranged on vertical terraces above the Mutso-Ardoti gorge, four combat towers and ruins of several old structures and buildings. Difficult to access, the village retains original architecture, and is a popular destination for tourists and mountain trekkers.
Lunch break;
5km driving to Ardoti village, which is abandoned as well and may it sound strange but only one family lives here in family tower. Village is very impressive with its ruins of ancient churches. Next stop will be at Khakhabo village, where only two families are living there today.
