Work on Creating Mountain-Pedestrian Trails across Georgia Underway

The Georgian National Tourism Administration (GNTA) says it is continuing construction work for the creation of a network of mountain-pedestrian trails across the country.

Within the framework of the project, national standards for marking the first mountain tracks were created back in 2016.

At this stage, the Racha-Lechkhumi-Kvemo Svaneti, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Mtskheta-Mtianeti, Guria and Imereti regions have been included thus far within the project.

Talks are currently being held regarding the Kvemo Kartli and Shida Kartli regions.

GNTA reports that the selection of Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo-Svaneti as well as the mountainous Samegrelo routes are ongoing.

At the end of the year, Georgia will have formed a network of 600 kilometers of trials.

The work is set to be completed within 2-3 years, and will cover the whole country.
