Long time ago, in the southern slopes of The Greater Caucasus Mountain in Georgia lived star-crossed lovers, none of them was able to live together as their families where in hundred years conflict with each other and it was thought that the person who will reestablish relationship with the member of other family will be cursed forever and their souls will never find peace.

Tsangala was a young boy who lived on southern slope of the mountain and beautiful girl called Gogona lived on northern Slope, during the whole year they had a single chance to meet , in February when the Winter Festival was held in the Village Gudauri, that was between this two mountains.

Every year for only one week they were able to meet and express their feelings and emotions in dancing and singing. During the last eleven month they could only reach each other by screaming their names »Tsangala…Gogoonaaa…Tsangaalaaa…Gogoonaa….» and mountain echoes were the keepers of their secrets and the only witnesses of their love.
One winter when they finally decided to run away from the mountains and live together they came down in Gudauri for winter festival, danced and sang songs and late at night they decided to run. It was end of February, so the ice had started to melt and when Tsangala and Gogona tried to run over the frozen river it broke down and this innocent couple was dead. But their love was so strong and so powerful that on the other day a bridge from flowers was established and from that day even strangers and people from other parts of world could enter the beautiful place of Gudauri. While crossing the river Tsangala felt on the other side of river and Gogona on the other, so their soul could not find each other and they became vagrant souls, wondering in the mountains of Gudauri.

From that day every winter in middle of February their soul settles in whoever crosses the bridge and visits Gudauri and their spirit forces people to ski on the mountain slopes, to dance and sing and enjoy being in Gudauri, everything that they weren’t able to do together. At the end whoever is able to do everything and especially sing the folk song »Tsangala da Gogona» will help this vagrant souls to meet each other and to find peace.
