One beautiful short walk from Juta goes southeast to the foot of Mt Chaukhi (3842m), a multi-pinnacled peak popular with climbers, 1½ hours from Juta. In a long, spectacular day of nine or 10 hours you can continue up to and over the 3338m Chaukhi Pass (passable from about July to mid-October) and down to Roshka in Khevsureti via the stunning Abudelauri lakes.

The trail over the pass itself and down to the lakes is not particularly obvious: a guide with a packhorse costs 100 GEL from Juta to the pass or 250 GEL to Roshka.
