During your tour to Tusheti you will enjoy seeing historical provinces of the region. Tusheti is the most unspoiled place in whole Caucasus eco region. Beautiful landscapes, breathtaking views, local traditions and culture, architectural and monuments of nature and somewhat simple but tasty cuisine (for example Kotori, which is made of cheese and tastes like Khachapuri) will leave unforgettable and pleasant memories.

Architectural style is common in Tusheti, but every village represents unique combination of towers, houses and nature.
Girevi is one of the villages of Piriqiti community. Settlers living in the villages of Pirikiti community (Chegho, Chontio, Dadikurta and Nakudurta) were leaving the territory, some settlers often stayed in Girevi.  Girevi was the last abandoned village. Today, in the end of the village, there is a post of border guards. Several families return in the village in summer, though in winter it is still abandoned.
