Khikhani Fortress: a green paradise near the clouds

 

If you are one of those who love to collect new experiences, who love to discover new and unknown Georgia and new destinations, then do not waste time, collect a hiking backpack and move towards the Khikhani fortress!

 

Here are a few facts and useful tips that will help you better plan your route.

  • The fortress is located in the village of Khikhadziri, within a 3-hour drive from Batumi
  • You can get to the village by public transport. The cost of the trip is 8-10 GEL
  • Before going to the fortress, you can have rest in guest houses (“Khikhani”, “Bako”, “Luka”)
  • The distance from rural houses to the fortress is about 8 km, which you can walk or drive a four-wheel drive car (local people will help you in finding it). Another important point that local residents can help you with is to warn the border patrol about your hike since the fortress is located close to the state border with Turkey.

 

You must be prepared for the fact that mountain hiking will not be easy. You will have to hike up more than a kilometer, and your legs and body will be your main opponents. However, do not give way to tiredness, otherwise you will not achieve your main goal - to visit one of the highest and most beautiful mountain peaks of Adjara!

 

Blackberry bushes, wild nature, large stones and logs - all this you will see on the way to the fortress. However, when you reach the end point, your emotions will surpass all expectations: this is a real green paradise near the clouds, at an altitude of over 2.5 km above sea level!
