Khde gorge and Kibishi pass - looking for gpx log

Hello, is here someone, who hiked through Khdestskali gorge (Kistinka gorge in Russian sources), crossed Central Kibishi pass and descended to Juta?

We are considering this route this summer and also would like to describe it on my web, as I have first-hand account and many photos, but still missing that Gpx log. Thank you.

Hello Thanatos,

I have done a quite similar trekk in August 2014. Have You seen that topic: Masyw Kuro i dolina rz. Kistura - może ktoś był tam?

Hello,

yes, I saw it. It looks great, but its not exactly what I am looking for :wink: . Just curious, what was the name of the pass you took to get into Khde/Kistinka valley?

I know only the elevation of this pass. According to a map: 3629 MAMSL. The pass (as well as many others in its neighbourhood) has no name.

I am not sure the Kibishi pass is accessible for hikers. We met a group of well-equipped Russian climbers leading by a Georgian guide. They went from Zemo Larsi to Juta by Kibishi pass. I had an opportunity of looking along the ridge which divides Khde Valley from Sno Velly. It seems to be very rocky and precipitous. IMHO the crossing of the ridge made by me in 2014 is the most optimal choice for non-climbers. Perhaps even the only passable one.

Thank you - after some more consultations we will probably change the route and take the one you took.

From what I know, descent from Kibishi pass is doable, but probably a bit risky for non-climbers and not something I would put on my web - that descent is supposed to have 40-50 degrees. We have steeper non-climber passes in Tatras, but still... :P ... never mind, heard that your route offers better views.

Thanks for the advice :idea:
