2 Day. Exploring the life of abandoned mountainous villages.

  • Shatili sightseeing.
  • Anatori village. It’s a dead village, where nobody is living.
  • Mutso village. Ruined fortress village of Mutso is straight out of a fantasy movie. Located on rocky hill at 1880 m above sea level, it has about thirty towers (about 300 years old) and dozens of dead lonely houses, left alone after earthquakes. The towers are connected to each other by a warren of walls, roofs, stairs and ladders. Many of the restored towers offer access to the wide wooden balconies that look out over the valley. Rehabilitation works are due to start at the site soon.
  • Lunch-picnic.
  • Ardoti village. In this village lives only one family. Here you can see ruins of ancient churches.
  • Drive back to Tbilisi.
