The route passes through Machakhela National Park, one of the most beautiful gorges of Ajara. Once there lived gunsmiths who made flintlock guns, the Topak of Machakhela, famous all over Georgia. On the moped you will make the way, which in ancient times was overcome by a warrior in order to get a precious gun. On your way, you will see (and photo) mountain rivers, waterfalls, ancient fortresses and arched bridges, a functioning water mill, a unique village power station with an aqueduct operating since Stalin’s times, and an artillery battery from the times of the Cold War. You will also see the border between Georgia and Turkey from a height of 1000 meters. In addition, you will have a chance to meet a local centenarian (105 years old!) and a young blacksmith – a descendant of Machakhelian gunsmiths. Learn how people lived in this place hundreds of years ago and how they live now, try the foods and drinks that Machakhela is famous for.
