Chuberi village is located in the Nenksra River valley of the Mestia Municipality, 1,300 meters above sea level. Many artifacts have been found on the ancient Larilari burial grounds such as cremated bodies from the 8th-7th centuries BC, gold coins (staters) minted in the name of Alexander the Great and King Lysimachus, and more.
Chuberi is one of the first villages on the road to Svaneti. They have many campsites and comfortable guesthouses so it’s worth staying even for one night.
You should leave Chuberi for Nakra in the morning, around 8 o’clock. You can get to Nakra through the Utviri Pass, 3,000 meters above sea level, where you can see almost all of Svaneti. The road starts with a dense, coniferous forest, and then turns into deciduous trees. At the end of the road, 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 in the village, where, after getting tired from hiking, you can enjoy Svan hospitality.
