"Ushba ... It rises in the very center of Upper Svaneti, above Mestia. Its view amazes, stuns, scares and delights. Two and a half kilometers of sheer inaccessible cliffs of pink granites and gneisses! Two and a half kilometers of plumb over the green carpet of meadows and above sparkling glaciers! Try to imagine it. No, it won't work if you didn't see Ushba. It won't work. I saw many different mountains - the Caucasus, Tien Shan, Pamir, Altai, Sayans, Kamchatka ... I visited the Tatras, climbed the most beautiful peaks of the Alps — Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. All mountains are beautiful. Ushb . No one can not be a second Ushba "- Alexander Kuznetsov "Svaneti ".
