Trekking to Tobavarchkhili Lakes

By TrekGeorgia
Trek to Tobavarchkhili lakes follows the most spectacular mountainous path in all of Georgia, we hike across rivers, cross two mountainous passes at the elevation of 3000m, walk into the sub-tropical forests, and see Georgia’s most stunningly beautiful lakes of Tobavarchkhili. The total distance of the trek is 45 km. The route follows very rug terrain of bushes, long grasses, goes over the Rocky Mountains and snow glaciers. In the last days, we will travel from high mountains to the Black Sea resort and relax there for one day. Tobavarchkhili lakes trekking is a certainly difficult trail but each inch of it offers hikers an unforgettable experience and adventure. if you plan to hike in Georgia or participate in trekking tours in Georgia Caucasus, then this trek is probably the most stunning destination in Georgia.

      Mestia/Ushguli Trek
      We did the 6-day Mestia-Ushguli trek but opted to stay 3 days in Mestia and 2 days in Ushguli. Instead of trekking to Ushguli from Mestia, we did 'day treks' from Mestia and Ushguli. We not only visited the major 'highlights' of Ushba Waterfall, Koruldi Waterfall, Chkhutnieri Pass, Sakhara Glacier and Chalaadi Glacier, Dito (can't ask for a better driver/guide) also took my kids and climbed a couple of the peaks near Mestia and Ushguli. Everything went smoothly and there is no issue at all (the autumn colours is a bonus!). I have no qualms about recommending TrekGeorgia.

      The most memorable trip
      The most memorable and best trip we did in Georgia! Ditto was the best guide / driver we could ask for. We would honestly do any and every trip by Trek Georgia. The homestay was also great and the food absolutely delicious. Thank you for a fantastic trip! We will be back.

      Gergeti Glacier is a must!
      We loved the Gergeti Glacier hike and we could not have wished for a better guide for this trip. The perfect combination of incredible hiking, great food, and laughter! The day started off with some clouds in the morning, but just as we got up to the glacier, the clouds parted and we got an awe-inspiring glimpse of Mount Kazbeg. I'd also highly recommend a brief stop at Alihut on the way down. Great atmosphere!

      An experience of a life-time!
      If you want to experience the real Georgia, then Trek Georgia is the way to explore. The remote villages and mountains in Tusheti were pristine and we loved the hiking, but the highlight was the warmth of the people and the incredibly delicious food (and the cha cha). We had the perfect guide. An expert hiker who was very focused on our safety at all times, and he also gave us insights to the Georgian culture which made us fall in love with the country and its people. It was an experience of a life-time! Highly, highly recommended.

      A wonderful experience all around!
      We did the 6-day Mestia to Ushguli trek and it was truly an excellent experience. I had been wanting to do something like this for years, and TrekGeorgia did not disappoint. The hiking was a lot of fun, the views were incredible, the villages were beautiful and had so much history, the guest houses were great and our hosts were friendly and accommodating, and we ate so much amazing food. Also, our guide, Dito, was the best! I absolutely recommend TrekGeorgia as they took care of everything and allowed us to just focus on the experience.

      Fantastic Horse Trekking Experience in Tusheti
      One week horse trekking in Tusheti - private tour with a friend. The trip was easy to organise through Dmitri. The guide, Tina, is a Tusheti local and it was a very special experience exploring the region with her - she explained history, culture and customs in as much detail as you'd like and is a fantastic host. The horses are forward going, but very good natured and the terrain and route has something to suit all riders. We have done several horse treks in different parts of the world - this was a very special experience and I'd highly recommend.

      Fantastic hike from Mazeri to Ushguli in Svaneti
      Fantastic 1-week hike from Mazeri to Ushguli organised by TrekGeorgia. Dito, our guide, knows the area like the palm of his hand and the whole trip was flawlessly organised. Beautiful scenery, gorgeous villages, and a good night's sleep at friendly guesthouses every day with excellent dinners and breakfasts. Dito was great at responding to every eventuality, including a potentially hazardous medical emergency affecting a group member. All in all a great experience, thanks TrekGeorgia!

      Kind, helpful guide & beautiful hiking!
      I did the 8 day trekking in svaneti, lovely group, excellent guide, supported the group really well and ensured it was a brilliant experience in a very beautiful region! Really nice guest houses and breakfasts/dinners/snacks(!) all great. I don't eat meat but there were plenty of meat free dishes. I needed some medical care at one point and the guide and driver were very kind and helpful. Thank you :)

      World-class trekking on 8-Day Svaneti trek
      World-class trekking landscape, top-notch, flexible organization by TrekGeorgia on the 8-Day Svaneti trek. (We also did the full-day David Gareja-Signagi, full-day Mtskheta-Gori-Uplistsikhe, and half day walking Tbilisi cultural tours with TrekGeorgia, all worth it.) Our guide for all was Dito: level-headed, knowledgable, good sense of humor, and experienced, always providing a great balance between more-than-needed and too-little... (Our trekking group of 7 people from 6 countries had one accidental event requiring a hospital visit when "more" was needed, nicely handled in an expert manner.) Highly recommend the 8-day trek with remote landscapes, spectacular scenery, waterfalls, and medieval villages-towers-museums if you can handle the second day's 1200 (or 1600 m) of climb over Guli Pass (best close-up views of the sorta Matterhorn-like Ushba peak.)

      Great tour for solo travelers! Fantastic hikes, stunning landscapes, great guides and tasty food in nice local guest houses! I feel I had a chance to get a wonderful insight into the life of the local people in this beautiful and remote mountain area of Georgia. Thank you for that!

      Sharing the love of Caucasus
      We did both the Svaneti and Tusheti Trekking group tour. I can warmly recommend for organizing unique experiences that fit your needs. You will not only discover the beautiful Caucasus but also get to know a culture very closely. Our guides were dedicated, adapting to everyone's level, and shared their years of experience in the best way!

      Superb trip
      We hiked in Tusheti, Svaneti and Kazbegi with Trek Georgia guides Dito and Tato. It was a fantastic experience, wonderful scenery everywhere and I have never seen such an abundance of wildflowers. The organisation was superb, quiet, flexible and very professional, the guides were knowledgeable and passionate about their country, its culture and history. We also had a tour of Tbilisi and its surrounding area , including a wonderful winery with our amazing guide Sofie.

      We loved our trek with TrekGeorgia!! From initial email contact with the company through the completion of the trek, the experience was seamless. Our guide, Dito was the best! He was the perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness. A native Georgian, he was a wealth of knowledge of Georgian history, culture, flora and fauna. It is evident that he loves his work. Would definitely recommend TrekGeorgia to guide your Georgian experience.

      The views and especially the flowers were amazing. Our guides were amazing and made the trip special.
      The scenery was amazing. The trekking and accommodation was excellent. Each day was a new experience. The wild flowers stud out for me. Our guides were absolutely amazing and took care of all our needs.

      I got more than I expected.
      The organisation was top level, Tato and Dimitri were very professional. The nature was really beautiful: the view of the white mountains, the incredible quantity of flowers.

    De hike naar Tobavarchkhili lake was in natuur/uitdagend opzicht fantastisch. Het is nog vrij ongerept en je komt enkel koeien, geiten veel flora een aantal andere wandelaars tegen. We hadden een hele leuke groep.
    Wij hadden vrij goed weer de eerste dagen, maar het klimaat is daar nogal vochtig. Dus de eerste en de laatste dag was het echt een muddy business, keep that into account.
    We zijn met de organisatie caucasus-trekking gegaan, de reis kostte 550€ omdat we met 1 iemand te weinig waren, normaal zou het 500€ voor 7 personen, toen er last minute toch nog iemand aansloot, kregen we de beloofde 50€ per persoon niet terug, wat niet afgesproken en dus niet fair was.
    Het eten was niet echt over nagedacht, massa's koeken, maar geen enkel stuk fruit op 6 dagen, van groenten hadden we enkel een komkommer, 1 pot spaghettisaus voor 7 mensen,.. dat kon echt wel beter.
