Climbing Mount Ushba, Svaneti, Caucasus


Are you up for a challenge? Then climbing Mt Ushba, in Georgia, is the trip for you! Denis, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, will lead you on this 12-day adventure



12 Days

Jul, Aug, Sep




  • 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 mountain outside the Alps to be compared with the Matterhorn.

Climbing Mount Ushba is not easy. At 4,710 m (15,450 ft) it is high, but also, it has a very steep profile and the weather is unpredictable. Therefore, it is reserved for experienced and well-prepared climbers. A certified mountain guide is a must for this climb.

Of course, the rewards of climbing Mount Ushba are many. The view from the top is outstanding. Additionally, you will get a unique sense of accomplishment from climbing this challenging mountain, and discover the unique landscapes and people of the Caucasus.

This program has a 12-day duration. You can find an outline below, although we can adapt it to suit your preferences and needs. I look forward to guiding you on an unforgettable climb!

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