One of the most exciting villages of Khevsureti are Lebaiskari, Kistani, Shatili and Mutso, adorned with well-preserved magical medieval towers and fortresses. We meet tombs of Anatori high in the mountains, which used to be the place for those diseases with plague during the medieval period. Khevsurians have many icons and prayer houses. Khevsureti, as well as other highlander regions of Caucasus, preserves a lot of interesting and archaic traditions and festivals. July is the most special in Khevsureti, when the most important Khevsurian festival of Atengenoba moves from one village and icon to another. Traditional way of beer brewing is very ancient and interesting, as it has a secular and ritual purposes and is still of a great importance in Khevsureti. Most part of Khevsureti is absolutely isolated in winter. The only mean of getting here in winter is helicopter and for this reason, Khevsurians resettle to lowlands during the summer. These inaccessible and mystic places attracts more and more new adventurers from all over the world.
