  • Discover one of the legends of the Caucasus

  • Contemplate the fantastic views around Mount Ushba.


Mount Ushba is one of the greatest mountains in the world, one of the legends of the Caucasus. Located in northwestern Georgia, it was the first mount outside the Alps to be compared with the Matterhorn. Indeed, some said… “The Caucasian Matterhorn is found”!

It is the most beautiful and difficult mountain in the Caucasus. Therefore, it is reserved for experienced and well-prepared climbers. A certified mountain guide is a must for this climb.

The view from the top is just incredible…

Please find below the program I usually propose. Of course, I can adapt it based on your time here, what you wish to do and your fitness level.

Please contact me if you are interested in trying the ascent of Mount Ushba. Let’s plan this great adventure together!

I also lead a program to the top of Mount Elbrus. Check it out!
