Tusheti is that wild part of Georgian mountains, where roads are still not that good maintained, hence dangerous sometimes. Nevertheless, the region is extremely beautiful. You can reach Lower Omalo with a shared car from Kakhetian village Alvani, and hike to Upper Omalo and Dartlo from there. Oreti lake, situated at an altitude of 2400m is another beautiful destination, which would need some strength though. But it is totally worth it! Breathtaking paths, untouched nature, medieval Tusheti towers and being face to face with mountains – this feeling is incredible.
