4 days 3 nights
Our company offers you 4 days hiking tour in Svaneti. Breathtakingly wild and mysterious, Svaneti is an ancient landlocked in the Caucasus. So remote that it was never tamed by any ruler. Uniquely picturesque villages and snow-covered, 4000m-plus peaks. Rising above flower-strewn alpine meadows provide a superb backdrop to the many walking trails. Svaneti’s emblem is the Koski – defensive stone tower. Around 175 ‘koshkebi’, from the 9th and 13th centuries, still survive here today.
Not so long ago Svaneti was still pretty well off the beaten track. But recent tourism development has brought ski resorts, flights from Tbilisi, a paved road from Zugdidi, and a huge increase in accommodation options. To the point where Mestia, Svaneti’s only town, can get pretty busy in summer. Svaneti’s mystique and beauty, however, are in no danger of wearing thin.
Within this tour, firstly you will visit Mestia – The administrative center of Svaneti. Tucked among high mountains and glaciers, this city stands proudly with high medieval centuries Towers. They look like soldiers ready to have one more battle against the enemy. On this day, also will visit Renewed Svaneti Museum of History and Ethnography.
The next day we will have hiking on the Ushba Waterfall. It is the most affluent waterfall in Georgia. Located in Svaneti near Mazera village.
On the third day, we will visit one of the highest villages in Europe – Ushguli. Here you will have a light hike to the footstep of the highest mount of Georgia – Shkhara. As a bonus, we will take you to the village Tsvirmi. Which has preserved the spirit of Svaneti’s past to this day.
Last day we will have a short trek to the Chalaadi glacier. And finally will drive back to Tbilisi.
