Short description:

Svaneti is a historical mountainous region in the north-west of Georgia, inhabited by Svans.

Geographically and historically, Svaneti is divided into Upper and Lower, separated by the Svaneti ridge. Upper Svaneti is an alpine valley in the upper reaches of the Inguri River. In administrative terms, Upper Svaneti is the Mestian region of the Samegrelo-Upper Svaneti region with its center in the urban settlement. Mestia. From the north and east, Upper Svaneti is bordered by the Main Caucasian Range with the peaks of Shkhara, Ushba, Tetnuldi, etc., along which the Georgian-Russian border passes. From the west, the area is separated by the Khurum ridge from the Kodori Gorge. Upper Svaneti was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Mestia - an urban-type settlement, is the cultural and religious center of the mountain of Svaneti. There is a historical and ethnographic museum in the village, where unique icons and manuscripts are stored, a house museum and a bust of a native of Mestia, the famous climber M.V. Khergiani (buried here). Several dozens of medieval Svan stone houses with watch and residential towers have been preserved here; churches (X - XIV centuries), including Matskhvari (Spas), Targzel (Holy Archangels) and others. Numerous medieval churches and fortifications of the Mestia region are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Mestia is also a center of alpine tourism and mountaineering; from here ascents to the peaks of Ushba, Dzhangi-tau, Shkhara and others begin. On December 1, 2010 the first ski resort was opened here.

Hatsvali (Mestia) is a young but very promising ski resort in Georgia, 1865 meters above sea level. Built by state order, Hatsvali in the future will become part of a large state tourism project, which should combine the slopes of the Svanetian mountains in one system. The resort began operations in 2011, after the opening of a small airport in Mestia in December 2010.

Tetnuldi resort is located in one of the highest mountain regions of Georgia - Svaneti, near Mestia, 2260 meters above sea level. The opening of the Tetnuldi resort took place in December 2016. The resort features stunning views and the widest opportunities for freeriding.
