Ushguli

Going to Ushguli in Georgia was quite an experience. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site and is said to be the highest (approx. 2100m above sea level) permanently inhabited village in Europe. You can walk to Ushguli from Mestia in about four days if you want to stay in guesthouses or three days if you … More Ushguli

I remember I saw some photos of Svaneti region in Georgia and I instantly imagined myself wandering around some snowy peaks of the Caucasus Mountains.

It is located near the Tibetan border, around three hour drive from Kathmandu. I hope I won’t spoil everything by saying … More The Last Resort
