There are just few small shops, no ATM or bank office. Hiking from Omalo in Tusheti to Shatili in Khevsureti is an absolute delight. Better to hire horse with guide to take your staff.

This is a mountainous part of Georgia. The best (and probably the only) time to visit is summer. There are no roads to speak of, and it is probably safer to backpack than to drive. Beautiful scenery, great food, friendly local population. I stayed in...More

The most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. Roads are really scary. It took us 5 hours from Telavi to get there. We stayed 3nights in Upper Omalo and visited neighbouring villages.

1. Can I get to Tusheti with SUV 2x4? - I can order from rentalcars-com only SUV vehicle group, they refuse to guarantee that I get 4x4 and not 2x4! 2. Is it dangerous to drive to Tusheti by myself if I have no experience of driving Jeeps (SUV)? 3. Can you advice me any local that can drive me there and back?
