Climbing North Ushba in 8 days, in the Caucasus Mountains


Join Shako, a GMGA Ski guide on this amazing trip to climb the North summit of Ushba in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia.



8 Days

Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Climb the notable peak of Ushba (North), a 4B grade peak on the European scale.
  • See incredible views from the top.
  • Scale on an interesting combination of ice, rock and fresh snow.


Join me to climb the north summit of the notable peak of Ushba in the Caucasus Mountains. Located in the Svaneti region in Georgia, Ushba is popularly known as the “Matterhorn of the Caucasus” because of its gorgeous double-summit and is definitely worth exploring.

The 8-day trek will take you to climb the north summit. You will scale on an interesting combination of ice, rock and fresh snow. No wonder it is a dream summit for all climbers!

We’ll begin the journey in Mestia. The following days will take us through various camps and all along, we’ll be rewarded by stunning views of neighboring peaks.

The north summit of Ushba is a 4B grade on the European scale, so make sure you have previous climbing experience. Also, we’ll be ascending in a higher altitude region, so it is a must to have a fit body to sign up.

We’ll climb the summit of the fifth day and what a feeling it would be! You’ll be stunned by the jaw-dropping views of the south summit and the spectacular alpine terrain. Then, after relishing our time, we’ll begin our descent and after a day of rest, end the journey in the beautiful village of village Mazeri.

If this spectacular tour to the peak of Ushba interests you, send a message now to book your seat. You’ll have an amazing time, I assure you.
