Description

We're willing to bet that you didn't know places like this still existed in our fast-paced, overly developed, modern world. Tucked away in the Greater Caucasus Mountains in northeastern Georgia, Tusheti is about as remote of a place as they come. It's so remote, in fact, that the road to Tusheti is open for only 3 months a year. Even the residents make their visits to Tusheti when they need to bring their sheep up to graze in the summer pastures. Most of the buildings were built hundreds of years ago, so every minute of your visit is like stepping inside of a history book, no museum required. While on your visit to Tusheti, be sure to come home with some knit or weaves that are commonly made by the locals. Although Tusheti might be the one beautiful place in this world completely unspoiled by tourists, there are a few guesthouses built just for tourists hoping to leave the modern world behind. This is seriously a once in a lifetime kind of vacation, the kind you can brag about for a lifetime.
