Svaneti is a high mountain region in Northwestern Georgia, home of the fierce and chivalric Svans. An extraordinary and surreal land of towers, snow, craggy peaks, wine, and dancing; where gold was fleeced, where time has not merely stopped, but rather simply never existed. The entire region is a UNESCO world heritage site. Most important cities: Mestia — the Svan capital, Mazeri — a stunningly beautiful landscapes mountain village and starting point for Svaneti Mount Ushba trekking, Kala, Lentekhi, Melle, Soli, Ushguli — perhaps the most picturesque Svan village, at the bottom of Georgia's highest mountain, Shkhara.
