A tour to Mulakhi Community. The driver will first take you to village Zhamushi, where you will see Saviour’s church (13th century). The church tower has been destroyed by an avalanche, like most of the towers and houses in the village. But the church and its treasures survived miraculously. After you visit the church, you will need to walk up the road to village Lakhiri (20 min). The road will take you to the main (and only) square. From the square you can walk to the right till the end of the village where St. John’s church is (see maps.me) and then when you return to the main square, walk up to the pine forest, and to the left (westwards), to see the general view of Lakhiri and its 18 ancient Svan towers that form a magnificent ensemble. The driver will be waiting for you down on the main concrete road (Mestia-Ushguli) at the bus-stop pavillion.
