Getting There

Mount Ushba is located in the Svaneti region of Georgia, just south of the border with the Kabardino-Balkaria region of Russia.

What to Expect

As in other mountains of the Caucasus, the weather can change several times a day, which often makes it challenging to climb mount Ushba. Temperatures on the peak in July and August range from -10 to -15


Between the Black and Caspian Seas, with Russia to its north and the Middle East to its south, Georgia contains four of Europe’s ten highest peaks. At 15,400 feet, Mt. Ushba is the nation’s fifth-highest peak, but its double summit separated by only 66 feet in elevation is regarded as the country’s most challenging climb. Climbers have named the surrounding area “The Rotten Corner” because of unpredictable and difficult weather conditions.
