Racha is a spectacularly beautiful highland
region of Georgia. As a contrast to the West Georgian temperamental
population, Rachians are unusually calm. There are lots of jokes
preserved in folklore on their easy-going nature. Racha's
population is famous for baking bread and their wonderful food. You
can find Rachian cooks even in the furthest spot from Georgia,
Australia. One of the main attractions of Rachian resorts is the
unusually pleasant climate and the bountiful hunting grounds. In
Racha, the many pure, cold rivers and streams provide some of
Georgia's best fishing, and the thick forests and mountains bring
hikers and hunters from all over the world.
Travel all around Racha, visit each and every village, look for old wooden houses, see the fabulous vineyards in Bugeuli, look into the misty eyes of Shaori Lake, remember Nikortsminda’s ornaments, look through the symmetry of hewn stones of Barakoni, count the colors in the forests that resemble a multi-colored Dagestani carpet, take photos of fir trees wearing skirts, towering walnut trees, moss, mushrooms with funny-looking hats and bear’s footprints. You need to taste the sour waters bursting here and there from the ground, freeze in Sakinule Cave, go up to the Alpine zone in Ghebi village, try their potatoes and just when you think you’ve reached the end of your journey you still have lots more to see. The main attraction in Racha is its people – unhurried and attentive people speaking real literary Georgian.
