Koruldi Lakes

Koruldi Lakes

Georgia Svaneti Qoruldi lake/Koruldi Lakes, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti, Georgia.Route starts at the main, newly reconstructed Seti square. Yours first task will be to make it to the cross on a mountain north of Mestia it lies halfway to the lakes and is visible from the city. Start walking from square to the east and when you see Liberty bank at the left side of the street, turn left and take the street heading directly towards the cross on the hill . Follow it past several Svan towers, soon you will pass under old stone arch - trail should be marked if you are not sure, ask around or watch for orange/white markings. Follow the street towards the cross. You will leave village behind and eventually come to the spot where main tourist trail sharply turns to the right. Here you have an option to take a shortcut which could save you some 30 minutes of walking, but is very steep and not that well marked. If you want to take it, just leave the tourist trail and continue climbing directly towards the cross. However, I would recommend to take standard trail, its longer, but more comfortable. Follow the main trail to the east and after some 30 minutes you will emerge on the jeep track. It will comfortably take you to the cross (there are also several shortcuts on the way), whole walk from Mestia to cross takes up to 2 hours. At the cross there is a wooden shelter and tourist marker showing way towards the lakes. Also, this is one of the hikes where I would consider hiring a guide. //www.caucasus-trekking.com
