Tbilisi is larger than many visitors first think and is home to at least 1.5 million of around 3.7 million Georgians. Together we will explore the historic part of the old town, take the cable car to the Narikala Fortress and give you an introduction to the history, country and people, customs and habits. You will see Georgian churches, Armenian churches, a Jewish synagogue, the remains of a fire temple, a mosque and a Catholic church within a kilometer radius. Tolerance and hospitality are very important throughout the Caucasus.
In the evening there is a hearty welcome evening in a Georgian restaurant.

One of the fascinating things about driving in Georgia is the constant change in landscape. We drive south past the largest auto bazaar in the Caucasus through the industrial wasteland of the city of Rustavi and reach a hilly steppe region, as if abandoned by God and humanity. Here and there we can spot rare birds or roam former military training grounds. In the Middle Ages, the solitude in the steppe became a coveted retreat for Georgian monks, who lived here in caves and operated a regionally important agriculture with cattle breeding and even viticulture. The gravel roads at David Gareji are fun to drive, which should familiarize us with the vehicles today. Overnight in Signaghi, the wine town overlooking the Caucasus. Driving distance about 200 km

Today we take the breathtaking pass road up to the Abano Pass in the lonely region of Tusheti, which is one of the most beautiful regions in the Caucasus. The road quickly becomes narrower and we take tight bends through dark, wooded gorges past rushing waterfalls. On steeper sections we need the gear reduction and leave the forest zone at 2300 meters to drive higher and higher along the rugged slopes in the direction of the Abano Pass. The pass takes its name from the Abano hot springs, where we might be able to take a relaxing dip on the way back. Abano means bath and the 2866 meter high pass to Tusheti is the bath pass. At the pass, a wide panorama opens up in front of us to the north with many chains of high mountains, Tusheti lies in front of us. The drive remains demanding for the next one and a half hours to Omalo and in the constantly changing landscapes of sky, mountains, gorges, rocks, stones, old avalanches and burst trees, after lonely defense towers and small villages, towards evening we finally reach the center of the region, Omalo.

The Tush people are also Georgians, but no one knows when they migrated to these high valleys – it must have been ages ago. But the many flocks of sheep show us that sheep breeding is their most important main occupation next to tourism. The inks are considered clever, courageous, robed. You can sing very well. In civil life they are shepherds or lawyers, pilots, doctors and engineers. There are said to be many poets and philosophers among the shepherds. Traditionally they have defended the country to the north-east against the Dido (Chechens) and against the Lekebi (Dagestan). Today in Dartlo we get to know a typical Tuschen village with the stronghold-like defense towers. We drive the varied gorge to Jvarboseli and try to be enchanted by the landscape and the inks.
