    Day 4: Lakhushdi-Mkheri Hike

    Stop At: Mkheri church in Latali, 42°58'02. 42°37'16., 9 GA-1, Roopville, Georgia
    Mkheri mountain is one of the best one day hike in Svaneti, but it is not started from center of Mestia and this is a reason why this rout isn’t as popular and well known as some places around the center. I read several reviews of Mkheri and old path had some weakness by hiker’s opinion, first was a muddy part of the train and second was views from the path. After the rain some part of the road is really muddy and by my opinion one more weakness is that there was just ion path and wasn’t possibility to do round trip. Old and signed path started from Center of Latali community
    Last year me and young people village Lakhushdi decided to recover and clean old path from Lakhushdi to Mkheri. I had several requests to tourism department to clean path and make signs, but they promised us to clean of the path after the several years. So one day we decided to did that work as volunteers and it was big adventure as well. We collected working tools in each family what we needed: chainsaw, petrol, oil, hatchets, and etc. Old path was afforested and this is why we needed more work than imagined. We spend 2 night outside without the tents under the tree at the end of the September near to 2000 meters from the sea level, Work was continued for several days, it was absolutely wild nature, and we were first humans the during the last several years. And we were so proud when finally reached to the top of Mkheri with path. Sunrise on the morning was the most beautiful thing what I ever seen.
    Description of the rout:
    As you remember old path from another village hade 3 major weaknesses: Muddy parts, views from the road and no possibilities for round trip. I think we solved all these weaknesses. Whole part of the path from Lakhushdi to Mkheri is Dry. Hikers have chance to see Caucasus and Svanetian mountains, Several villages and etc. New path gives you chance to decide back to home by same way or do round trip. New hiking path is beginning at village Lakhushdi where you can stay at Ecohouse Svaneti and there are several small guesthouses as well, village is unspoiled from tourism and bet view of Mountain Ushba. Path crossing the river Enguri, after the 1,5 km crossing old village Sgobuli, where are several towers and wooden huts , beautiful meadows, view of the mountains Tetnuldi, Ushba and etc. After the meadows begging wild forest for several kilometers than again start meadows and ridge where is starting the best panorama views by 360 degree, Final destination is Church on 2500 Meter, where you can decide come back to Lakhushdi by same way or do round trip via old path. Difficulty of the path is Medium and takes 7-8 Hours, Elevation is 1200 meters, you can rent local guide in Lakhushdi and possible to rent horses as well
