The trail starts from the edge of Khakhabo village, turning to the right from the road to Chiglaurta. After 50 m turn right to the road up. The road ends up with a small field. Do not go beyond the road’s end as the field is holy place (Mariamtsminda). At this point turn sharply to the right and cross the meadow diagonally up.
From Mariamtsminda the path is relatively visible. Keep up to the top of the meadow, then take the upper path going to the forest. The path leads through the forest more or less on the contur line. On the road you will cross the small stream (not recommended to take the water here as there are often cows).
After some 400 m from the stream the trail turns up, but the path is hardly visible. You come to the meadow when there is no path. Keep diagonally up and on the top of the meadow turn right up when you reach another meadow.
Here turn right and up through the lower part of the meadow. The trail leads up to the large meadow on the slope below the tops on mountain chain. To the forest, the path is clear at this point. The meadow is called Shantlovani (marshland).
Shantlovani meadow should be crossed roughly in the middle. Khakhabo village is visible on the left side far below. The path is hardly visible, keep up to the left towards the groups of pine trees.
Reaching the mountains chain turn to the right for some 100 m and then follow the path turning to the left roughly on the contur line between the trees. You cross the small stream and keep on the path leading slightly up to the pass. From the pass, nice views on the Gometsari valley. The closest village is Gogrulta, the farer village further to the right is Dochu.
From the past the path goes down and right. You will go through a small stream (is is possible to take the water, but the water flow is little.
From the stream the path leads zigzag down through the meadow called Apakurta. You can also go rightly down up to the first trees of the pine and birch forest.
The path zigzags through forest and leads down to the large meadow. Here the remnants of the houses are located (the winter houses of Gogrulta – Gogrulta boslebi/Lashkaraulta). Go down along the houses. At the lower end of the meadow, take the path through the forest further down up to the river Oritskali.
Here firstly cross the stream which conjuncts to the main river (you can jump over). Oritskali has to been crossed through the shallow ford. After the ford go a few steps against the stream and below the tree starts the ascent to Gogrulta. Zigzag the path through thesmall forest with views back to Lashkaraulta. Once you reach a small chain, turn to the right and keep on the path leaving up on the chain. The ruins of tower will be seen on the left on the opposite hill through the meadow. Pass along the ruins of the house. Some 200 m above the house, the view on Gogrulta opens in front of the path. Continue on the path going now roughly on the contour line until you reach the village.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Once you reach the village, the sacred place (Mariamtsminda) is on your left side above. No women allowed on the sacred hill, but keeping on the path is acceptable.
