One guide will work with the group of two (and two guides for the group of three or four) throughout the expedition to back you on technical sections of the trail. We will also carry out training with alpine climbing gear to ensure that we safely traverse glaciers and pass the key route sections. All the gear we use is certified by UIAA.


Smooth adaptation to high altitudes is a cornerstone of any successful ascent. The acclimatization plan comprises three stages: 1) a round trip to the Koruldi Lakes and hike to 3,300 m; 2) an overnight stop at 2,900 m; 3) and a radial hike to 4,200–4,300 m on the fourth day of our expedition.

We will carry backpacks for a maximum of four hours a day. The rest of the time will be dedicated to recovery and adaptation to a new altitude threshold. And of course, we will have a reserve day in case of inclement weather or for more rest/better acclimatization.


We will take care of all arrangements. We will organize a private transfer from Tbilisi/Kutaisi to Svaneti, arrange accommodation in Mestia, and provide you with comfortable tents and full three meals a day during the climbing expedition. We will also ensure that you have all the necessary equipment, including personal climbing gear if needed.
