    We met some rangers at the park, here is what they told us:
    The one day rout recommended by the park administration (1 then 6) is approximately 12-14 km. 1 until it changes in to 6 is 7-8 km. The steep climb is about half an hour long. The total walking upwards time is approximately 2.5 hours.
    The rangers hut is better than the shelter, it can contain up to 12 persons and there are matrases there so you can sleep comfortably. You should take the food with you though.
    Here is a price list which I received from the park:

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Take the train to Bakuriani. It takes 2, 20 hours and leaves from a small station next to the market. It's beautifull going up slowly. The costs are 1 dollar.
