  • I recently took a short trek in the mountains surrounding the Pankisi gorge. The guide Devi Asmadiredja accompanied me. The love she has for her adopted home made the adventure all the more special...  more »
  • According to some, Pankisi Gorge and the surrounding valley is dangerous. In our experience, the valley was a lovely place filled with warm and hospitable people. The valley is indisputably beautiful, almost staggeringly so. There are a number of charming guest houses in the region, led by the oldest and best established in the valley, Nazy's Guest House, now six years old, in Jokolo. The Pankisi Valley has not received much government investment over the years, yet the Kist people who live there are proud of their Georgian heritage. Ethnically Chechen Muslims, the Kists live across the Caucasus from their relatives in Russian Chechnya and there is significant emigration to Chechnya from the valley because of its better economy. By all means, visit the Pankisi Valley. You'll be glad you did.
