Getting There & Away

A taxi or 4WD day trip for up to four people from Mestia costs 150 GEL to 200 GEL; one-way trips are only a little less. The road is unpaved, and in poor condition, for the last 30km. It's normally open all year except after heavy snow or landslides, but non-4WD vehicles can only manage it from about June to October (and they need high clearance). The rough track on from Ushguli to Lentekhi in Lower Svaneti (75km, via the 2623m Zagar Pass) is passable from about May to September. 4WDs charge 300 GEL for the three-to-four-hour trip.
