If you traveling in Svaneti, then Ushguli is must to do. It's so beautiful, peaceful and authentic place. From any place you can see glacier Shkhara and local Svanetian Towers.

Traveling to Svaneti is a great adventure. It is a fascinating (and not too log ago, lawless) region up in the hills of western Georgia.

Svaneti is pretty close to what I imagined Georgia to be - isolated, traditional, scenic and raw. This area, set high in the mountains has harnessed it's isolation to create an unwaveringly authentic community. Make no mistake, traveling here isn't for the faint of heart (or those who fear heights), but the remoteness and calm of the region has an indescribable power that just makes you feel free and alive.
