Caucasus Diary


My Caucasus Diary...since 2005 I regularly travel to the South Caucasus. Several times during these journeys I have travelled to the wild and remote regions of Svaneti (Georgia) and the 5000 m summits of the Caucasus Mountains. I always stay with friends in Mestia, the Khergiani’s, a family of famous Georgian alpinists, where we are hosted with greatest Georgian hospitality. Here, in their house, I always find memories of new friendships, of climbing partners that have passed, relationships that moved on and of long evenings with friends over wine and food. And every trip here leads to another trip to come, full of new adventures, encounters, friendships and memories.
