Khevsureti Guesthouses - Booking

Khevsureti region is situated between three deep gorges and four mountain ranges, which are covered with ice and snow. The citadel-village of Shatili boasts a variety of towers that are centuries old and still inhabited. The suspension bridges are used to connect towers and let the villagers move from one dwelling to the other. Even in recent past a place called Anatori ossuary was used by gravely sick Khevsurs: to save their families they used to set out to that place and meet their end in seclusion, keeping their kinfolk safe from the calamities of sweeping epidemic and mortal disease. The warlike character of Khevsurs influenced some historians to the point that they were inclined to relate this tribe of the Georgian highlanders to the Crusaders; but the decisive point, of course, was the presence of the images of the cross in the national attire of the Khevsurs. Along with their bellicose history and experience, they have also a custom of the opposite peaceful nature and ethics: if a young girl or a woman throws her kerchief between the fighting Khevsurs, it signals her order to stop the combat and the men always obey the lady's interference.
