Journey to the Mountains of Svaneti

Svans are very proud of their home and their culture, so this is a difficult decision. 

How have people been adapting to this environment?:

Within the last ten years, a boom in tourism has increased job opportunities and income in the region. A ski resort was opened in 2010, and there are many guesthouses, restaurants, drivers and tour operators in Mestia. Trekkers, skiers and mountain lovers travel from all over the world to visit Svaneti.
