Ushguli, Svaneti (Georgia) view map

Ushguli is the highest permanently inhabited village in Europe (2.100 m. above sea level), located in Svaneti, at the feet of Shkhara (5.068 m.), one of the highest Caucasian summits. About 70 families, approximately 250 people live in the village, which dates back more than 2000 years.
The mountainous region of Svaneti in the northwestern part of Georgia is one of the most remote and inaccessible regions of the country. Svaneti retains a pristine medieval quality. This sense of time warp, combined with the grandeur of the natural setting, makes a trip to Svaneti well worth the effort no matter how difficult it may be to get there.
