Heshkili Svaneti Georgia

This place is a true paradise for cabin lovers. Here we experienced authentic Svanetian culture and we found it to be the  special place to get lost and find yourself. The cabins are located in Keshkili –  Heshkili huts Svaneti provide a garden, terrace and bar. The accommodation features evening entertainment and a shared kitchen. Unfortunately, at that time they didn’t have spare rooms so we got there to take some nice pics.  The host served us with a pie which had unbelievable smell of wild cranberries. She was very kind towards travelers and even assisted us in photographing. If you get to this place, check the cabin on a tree. This trip was a true  fairy tale to me. Svaneti Georgia
