Jeep tour to Mestia from Kutaisi

Western Georgia is a real treasure for those called by mountains. Alpine villages, majestic mountain peaks, the best views - all this will definitely not leave you indifferent!

Arrival in Kutaisi - the first day

After arriving in Kutaisi and meeting at the airport, as well as a short briefing, you will go to the city of Mestia along the picturesque valley of the Inguri River with a dam and hydroelectric power station. The first stop is the village of Becho with its famous views of Mount Ushba with a spear-shaped peak. Ushba is one of the most popular mountains in Svaneti with a height of 4690m, and in its shape resembles the alpine peak Matterhorn. Then you continue along the medieval villages with their mysterious Svan towers, included in the UNESCO heritage list, ancient churches and picturesque views. In the evening you will arrive in the main city of Svaneti - Mestia.
