Zekari Trekking

Zekari Trekking

 

Zekari Pass is an unusual place for us. We have been exploring it for 6 years now. Together with our friends, local shepherds we develop tourism in a sustainable way. We respect local culture, unique ethnography and traditions. We got to know many unusual places here, tested a lot of trails and roads, which now we want to show you! 

Zekari Pass is located on the border of two regions, Imeretii and Samcche-Djavakheti. It is dominated by Didmaghali peak reaching as high as 2,580 m above sea level. Characteristic supalpine meadows, vast spaces. This place has its own amazing climate. With a bit of luck we can meet here a herd of galloping wild horses. Zekari is called "Imeretin's door to heaven". These areas are so beautiful that they have also been called Imeretin Tushetia for generations. However, they are much less known!

During our trip we offer accommodation in a unique place, which we created together with local shepherds. We are of course talking about our  ZekariWindow! Our cottage, tents and technical facilities with sanitary and catering part are waiting for you! On site our cook will prepare delicious, fresh meals for you. ZekariWindow is located in Kvasakdari villages , at 2,200 m above sea level. 
Here you will rest from the Internet and your phone, which will be useful only to capture beautiful moments in photos. We will feast by the campfire, Georgian dishes, aromatic wine and cognac under the starry sky! From this place we will see the wonderful sunset and sunrise, And sometimes mountains and valleys under a quilt of clouds!

The first destination of our trekking expedition will be Zegani Shepherd's Villagewhich we will reach through picturesque countryside, extensive meadows and hidden valleys. On the way, we will visit three shepherd families who live here during the summer season. We will also go to the highest village in the Imeretia region - the Ivlita. It is reached by one of the oldest roads in Georgia, which belonged in part to the Silk Road. Alexander of Macedon, Pompey's Roman legion, Ottomans, Persians and Mongols passed through this area. The Valley of the Caucasian EaglesThe hotel offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Samcche-Djavakheti region.

You will learn about local folklore, traditions, cuisine and unique cheeses (imeretinsky, sulguni) made by the shepherds who live on Zekari. You will also enjoy fresh kefir, cottage cheese, and still warm milk served straight from the cow at breakfast.  Every year during the summer season, according to a tradition passed down from generation to generation, shepherds graze their herds of cows here. The unique climate, altitude, air quality, and subalpine meadows contribute to the incredible taste of these cheeses.

Exceptional nature, huge spaces, peace and quiet. An ideal place for trekking and rest from the busy world. There will be no shortage of beautiful views, shared feasts by the fire, Georgian cuisine and regional aromatic wines.
