Ushguli is the highest permanently inhabited village in Europe. About 70 families, approximately 250 people live in the village, which dates back more than 2000 years.
For 6 winter months, snow covers the whole place. The superb location of Ushguli and the unique lifestyle of the people in the village turn the place into a popular destination to visit - in summer time :) But only few groups visit this plase in winter. Be one of the bravest!
