More About Tusheti, Georgia

Take a trip to:

Tusheti, Georgia


According to archeological material found in Tusheti, people settled here in the Late Bronze Age. In Georgian historical sources, there is very little information about Tusheti. This unique part of Georgia preserves the remains of an old culture. Tush Towers - these resilient stone structures provided shelter for the Tushetians as well as a watchtower to escape Chechens’ and Dagestani.

Tucked away in Georgia’s far northeast corner bordering Chechnya and Dagestan in neighboring Russia, Tusheti is one of Georgia's most picturesque and pristine high-mountain regions. The single unpaved (and often terrifying) road to get here from Kakheti passes over the nerve-jangling 2900m Abano Pass and can only be done in a 4WD from around late May to mid-October.
