Start from: Mestia
Time: all day
Combine your visit to UNESCO sight Ushguli with a breathtaking panoramic jeep-tour to Latphari pass. The pass is located 8 km away from Ushguli, near Kala Community. The 12-km ascent will bring you to a view-point at 2830 m above sea level with a small lake and tiny St.Luke’s church. The entire of Upper Svaneti and a big portion of Lower Svaneti can be seen from the pass; the valley of the Enguri river from Shkhara to Ushba; Ushguli and Kala from bird’s eye view. But the gem of Latphari is the fantastic panorama of the Bezengi wall peaks: Shkhara, Jangitau, Katintau, Gestola, Tetnuldi and their glaciers. The visit to the pass will add about 1.5 – 3 hours to the Ushguli tour, depending on how much time you will spend at Latphari. There is a marked trail that you can do around Latphari and Gorvashi passes for about 1.5 – 2 hours).
