The road

The route begins in small town Khulo, continues to the east till Danisparauli Village and follows Batumi-Akhaltsikhe Highway for 22 km. From Danisparauli Village we continue towards the Goderdzi Resort by the same road (2.5 km). Goderdzi Resort is the modern downhill skiing destination established in 2012. Currently it is not functioning at the full capacity. In winter, two cable ways are working. They bring us to the height of 2330 m. By Batumi-Akhaltsikhe road we get to Goderdzi Pass (5.7 km). Goderdzi Pass is the key point of this route. From here you can continue your journey in three directions:

We also can reach the Green Lake if we follow the automobile road. We can also continue to the north from the Green Lake and return to Danisparauli Village via Didachara. The route can be passed by both, mountain bike and horse.
