"For example, there are pathways from Tskhrajvari to St. George’s monastery, from where you go to the village of Nikortsminda and on to the lower villages of Racha, namely Tskmori, Gogoleti, etc. These places offer a landscape that is mixed with coniferous and deciduous forests that make a spectacular sight.

Kvemo Kartli and Shida Kartli regions are no less beautiful. You can see the colorful forests in the Gudarekhi and Birtvisi areas, which are quite simple to access. "There are many crossing trails in Manglisi, Kaspi municipality, as well as the road going through the shady woodlands of Tskhvarichamia, where there are some very beautiful views. Rkoni is very nice too, from where you can go to Kldekari. Both are the areas of Shida Kartli and there are many mixed forests there", - Bukhrashvili adds.
