Tusheti

Dartlo - the highest village in the list of protected landscapes of Tushetia.
There live no more than a dozen people there today. But there is a hotel where you can sleep.

This village is one of many beautiful villages throughout Tushetia. It is located at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level, in the Pirikita Alazani gorge, which is located on the northern slope of the Caucasian ridge. In addition to castles, buildings and towers, the ruins of Christian churches are also preserved in the village.

In the past, the enemies especially attacked one of the towers of Dartlo. This tower had 6 floors: on the ground floor, prisoners were held, and from the second to the fifth, it served as a refuge for women and children. The sixth floor was used by soldiers during the battle. This tower now stands in the middle of the village. You can also see the "stone chairs" preserved here. Elders of the village sat on them, discussing controversial cases (theft, murder, treachery).
