Archangel’s church of Guli is located right over Mazeri; it used to be part of a small settlement, and you can still see the ruins of big Svan manors nearby. From the church, the trail goes towards Guli pass (3000 m) between the valleys of Mestia and Mazeri. A few hundred meters below the pass, the horse trail turns into the Gulichala gorge and in good weather, you can admire Ushba from very close. The trail ends at the basecamp of one of the alpinist routes to South Ushba summit, marked by a memorial stone to perished alpinists and rescuers.

The excitement of riding in Svaneti is, in just one word, authentic. You ride the trails the locals ride when they tend to the cattle or go hunting; the horses are the same ones that work in households, and even the gear is just what the owner uses when he is off hunting or after his herd. How much closer to the real thing can you get?

You don’t need to be an experienced rider to do these tours. Actually, it’s a good opportunity to try riding! In the mountains, the trails are not suited for galloping, so the tours are mostly walking-pace ones. In some places, you may have to dismount and lead the horse (especially downhill on slippery bits), but generally, local horses know how to choose the best route.
