High above the clouds lies the fairytale land Svaneti, rightly referred to as the roof of Europe. Several populated villages at an elevation of 2,000 metres are situated between mountain peaks of more than 5,000 metres. Isolated in untouched nature, age-old traditions long gone in other regions of Europe are still alive well in Svaneti. Come With us on a journey into this unknown fairytale land!
In this book the Norwegian Richard Bærug tells the story how he and his Svan travel companion Shako Margian became the first men in history to travel all the way around Svaneti on foot and on skis. It turned out to be a wonderful journey into a unique natural world with fabled mountain peaks, beautiful little churches, secluded villages, and characteristic tower houses included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. And not least, exciting encounters with the people who still live in this mountain region.
