Village in Sno Valley

The Sno valley runs southeast off the Georgian Military Highway from Achkhoti village, 4km south of Kazbegi. The small village of Juta (2150m), an outpost of the Khevsur people from over the mountains to the east, is about 15km along the mostly unpaved valley road and a starting point for some great hikes. A taxi from Kazbegi to Juta costs about 80 GEL; for the same price the driver will often wait and take you back again after a few hours if you want.
