Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti


Chuberi community, which combines 10 neighbouring villages is located in the Nenksra River valley of the Mestia Municipality, 1,300 meters above sea level.

Archaeological excavations showed that people lived here since ancient times. Many important artifacts have been found on the Larilari burial grounds such as cremated bodies from the 8th-7th centuries BCE, gold coins (staters) minted in the name of Alexander the Great and King Lysimachus, and more.

The center of the Chuberi community is the village of Kvemo Marghi. Here, as well as in other villages of the community, you can stay at family hotels.


You should leave for Nakra in the morning, around 8 o’clock. The route starts with a dense, coniferous forest, and then turns into deciduous trees. The highest point of the trail is Utviri Pass, 2,714 meters above sea level, where you can see almost all of Svaneti. At the end of the trail, you will reach alpine meadows. In winter, there are many wild animals on this path, including bears and wolves. The best time to take this trip is from July to September.

Nakra Village is in the alpine zone and has guesthouses to stay in, where, after getting tired from hiking, you can enjoy Svan hospitality.
