bGT PEAK TRAVEL BLOGS
I am (Brown Gal Trekker) quite excited for my upcoming trek in the Republic of Georgia! There lies the range of the Caucasus Mountains and to explore these peaks, one must travel to Svaneti, Kagbezi and Tusheti regions of the country. I hope to meet local guides/operators to explore the possibility of supporting their local tourism and promoting it when I return to the U.S. The region is still very much at the infancy stage of tourism and the trails themselves have yet to be built at a level that is friendly to beginner hikers.
In my research on this trip, there are a few websites that have been quite helpful in planning the trip. It is worth mentioning that the Transcaucasian Trail is a non-profit organization that is working on developing a world class long distance trail in Georgia with the hopes of promoting tourism in the region.
