The Khabelashvili wooden bridge was built a few centuries ago to connect the villages of Chvani valley with Khulo. The bridge was originally covered with tin, but the damaged roof was replaced with tin in the twentieth century. Today, the new roof rests on a bridge made of chestnut and oak.

The bridge is located in the village of Khabelashvili, Shuakhevi municipality, in the Chvani valley. The bridge is authentic and with its features, architecture, elements used during construction, as well as roofing, is the rarest in Georgia. Unique types of wood were used during the construction: elm - for slats, chestnut - for slats, oak - for support poles and urtkhela under the roof. According to the villagers, the bridge was built 300 years ago. Its length is 25 meters, and the width of the carriageway is 1.20 meters
