Tusheti is a real paradise for those, who prefer active rest, tracking through the mountain passes, breathing fresh air, sleeping in a tent in the mountains. It is the best way of physical and spiritual rest.DSC0127320140803_094203In Tusheti at the cross-road of Piriqiti and Gometsari gorges, there is a beautiful place Mirgvela. It is about 4km from Omalo. On the field of pine-trees you can set up your tent, make a campfire and watch the sunrise from the picturesque Caucasus Mountains in the morning and the sunset in the evening. While gathering some wood for fire, you come across beautiful mushrooms. You can also taste the sweetest wild strawberries.DSC0128320140803_054743
