The route starts near the Arakhveti village along a wide ravine starting from the road.
Since the beginning of the route is a couple of kilometers away from the start of the previous route to the ”Lomisi Monastery” on page 66, it takes the same half an hour by taxi from Gudauri the same 70-100 GEL per roundtrip car.
After a flat start – ascent along a steep spur (up to 27 degrees), quickly passed with long kick-turns on the ski-tour. Then, after going out on a large open flat glade – a good place for having a rest, ancient stone cross-khati (sacred place for prayers) at an altitude of 1830 meters (42.41753, 44.51952). Then, after crossing a flat section – ascent though the thin, well-viewed low forest..
In the days of increased avalanche danger, the descent is not far away from the ascent traces – the safest option; if the snow cover is stable, you can descend on the sidelines of the ascent line through the forest and ravine.
