I left Zugdidi for Mestia, a little village in the Caucasus mountains. The distance between Zugdidi and Mestia is 130km, two hours by car. The road runs along Inguri River (Georgian: ენგური, Enguri), getting into northeast Caucasus Mountains.
The Inguri Dam is a hydroelectric dam on the Inguri River in Georgia. Currently it is the world’s second highest concrete arch dam with a height of 272 meters. It is located north of the town Jvari.
The Inguri River is in western Georgia. It is 213 km long, originates in northeastern Svaneti and plays an important role providing hydroelectric power to the area.
Ushba is one of the most notable peaks of the Caucasus Mountains. It is located in the Svaneti region of Georgia. Ushba is known as the “Matterhorn of the Caucasus” for its picturesque, spire-shaped double summit. Due to its steep profile and unstable weather, Ushba is considered by many climbers as the most difficult ascent in the Caucasus.
I arrived at Mestia finally. As road was bad, It had been taken more than three hours, but it was worth it.
