In 1 week on June 1 I will be going to Mestia and plan to hike from Mestia to Ushguli. Unfortunately when I check the weather forecast it looks like a lot of rain.
Has anyone been in the area recently? And know what the conditions are on that trail this spring?
Hi, I am currently planning a road trip around Georgia and Armenia and would really like to cross over to Abkhazia from Georgia.
We are planning to rent a car in Georgia and I was wondering whether it is possible to cross over to Abkhazia by car? i haven't found any trip reports of people who have actually done this.
If not, would it make sense to leave the car parked in Zugdidi for a couple of nights or would that be risky?
We are going on a 7 day 7 night trip to Georgia. Below is the itinerary we are planning to follow.
I have a few questions on which I will be glad to get some answers. I have added the questions below.
Day 1 -July 1 - Arrival at Tbilisi at 8:20 PM (Stay at Tbilisi)
Day 2 -July 2 - Tbilisi sightseeing (Stay at Tbilisi)

I am looking for information about the road from the Çıldır Aktaş border gate to Vardzia.
* I don't have my own vehicle so looking for transport this way (public or private), what are the options and how long should it normally take?
In fact my full travel is from Kars/Ani in Turkey, if there are taxi or tour services that could take me from Kars/Ani to Vardzia cross border in one long day, it would be interesting to know too!
Would be great if some of you had any advice!
Thanks a lot
I'm going to Georgia for a competition and I have decided to take 9 more days to travel around, from 30/05 to 8/06 when I have my return ticket. I'd really love to do some trekking, but I'm not sure what to choose.
30/5 from Borjomi to Kutaisi, flight to Mestia (or stay and see the Okatse Canyon ?)
31/5 around Mestia (or from Kutaisi to Tbilisi)
1/6 flight to Tbilisi (stay in Tbilisi)
2/6 Tbilisi - Kazbegi (how ?)
3-4-5/6 around Kazbegi (Gergety church, trekking to the meteo station - is it…
Turkish and U.S. friends will meet in Tbilisi for about a week in June.
Thinking about renting a car for a few days for some touring outside the city.
The Turks don't own cars and have little experience driving.
I'm a very experienced driver in the USA and Turkey. Reasonable driving experience in north-central Europe (think Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and Costa Rica.
Driving--anywhere--in India is something I will NOT consider! I could handle Egypt to include "quick" in-out in Cairo.
Hi I'm traveling to Georgia on Saturday and will be staying with friends of family (from West Georgia) most of the time that I'm there. They found an inexpensive tour to Svaneti for me but it only leaves on Saturdays and I've been invited to a family wedding at the same time, so I think that will be more fun than any tour.
I am also interested in Khevsureti. I have seen a few tours online and sent inquiries. Has any one taken a tour of this region? It seems to fit my travel plans better as the…
