Description

Mount Ushba is one of the greatest mountains of 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 of 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…
