The Greater Caucasus is the most spectacular mountain range in Europe. The twin-peaks of MT Ushba can compare with any in the Himalayas. Walking in the presence of grand snowy peaks is truly invigorating - the more so due to its originality. Georgian tourist companies offer a large selection of walking tours - lasting from one day to three weeks - and always through stunning scenery.
