Ushguli, a small village at 2.400 meters above sea level, is the highest continuously inhabited place in Europe. It is located in the deep Svaneti region, about 50 kilometers and over two hours’ journey from Mestia.

Due to the heavy snowfall in the region and a road that is frequently unstable and in poor shape, the community is cut off from the outside world for about 5 to 6 months each winter.

It’s a special location, surrounded by a breathtakingly lush environment dominated by Georgia’s tallest mountain, the spectacular Shkhara peak (5.200 meters). Here, life appears to have gone back in time since the rhythms of living are completely different. feel-good “end of the world” vibes.

A tour of the medieval eras. This is the Caucasus Region, not a time capsule.
