Welcome to Roshka
Nine kilometres past Barisakho, a side-road climbs 7km west up to the tiny village of Roshka. A wonderful walk from Roshka takes you up to the three small, but very beautiful, coloured Abudelauri lakes with their backdrop of the jagged Chaukhi massif. It's about 2½ hours (5km) up to the first (green) lake, then 10 minutes on to the stunning turquoise lake, and a further hour (with no real path most of the way) up to the white lake, below a glacier coming down from the Chaukhi massif.
The excellent Shota Tsiklauri's Guesthouse, at the very top of Roshka, provides four comfy guest rooms and fine food.
