The 18-kilometer Mazeri-Mestia hiking route takes around 9 to 10 hours and is one of the most beautiful in Svaneti. Mazeri village, along this route, is the abandoned settlement of Guli, Guli Pass, and Mestia.
Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti


The route starts in the village of Mazeri at 1,660 meters above sea level, in the Dolrachala River valley, in Mestia Municipality, the Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti region.

From Bagvdanari, one kilometer away, you pass through an abandoned settlement called Guli, where the 10th-century Archangel Gabriel Church lies. From the village, cross over Guli Pass at 2,954 meters above sea level on one slope of the Ushba Massif. The path continues to descend 1,400 meters in the direction of the Koruldi Lakes and Tskhakvzagari Mountain. The last stop on the route is the beautiful town of Mestia, where you can also see the Koruldi Lakes.


The town of Mestia is famous for its ancient fortress towers. The towers of Mestia make an appearance in one of the Japanese director and screenwriter, Hayao Miyazaki’s animes, Laputa: Castle in the Sky. 

We recommend spending the night in a local hotel in Mestia and trying some traditional Svan cuisine.
