We travel along the Likhi Ridge, also known as the Rikoti Pass, which serves as a natural divide between the eastern and western parts of the country. This passage marks a significant transition in the landscape and climate, heralding a shift in Georgia's diverse ecological beauty.

Our route takes us through the village of Surami, renowned for its exquisite Honey Bread, and Shrosha, a haven for those who enjoy traditional Georgian ceramic crafts. Here, visitors can acquire clay pots, jars, and Kvevris, the iconic large clay vessels used to ferment, store, and age traditional Georgian wine.

The expedition continues to Kutaisi, an ancient city with origins dating back approximately 3500 years and earliest mentions in Greek mythology through the Myth of the Argonauts. Visit the Gelati Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site symbolizing Georgia's "Golden Age." The monument reflects a period of economic prosperity and political might between the 11th and 13th centuries that began under the rule of King David the Builder. Our journey then takes us to the Motsameta Monastery, an enchanting 11th-century structure perched atop a cliff and surrounded by lush greenery, providing a tranquil retreat.
