Beshumi to Ushguli: Four days in paradise
Georgian Photographer Giorgi Shermazanashvili made a trip from Beshumi to Ushguli. His pictures capture the great beauty of Georgia's west. From the coastal town Batumi it takes around 4-5 hours to get to Beshumi. Travellers should know that the way is uneven and very tiring.

“A rope where passengers breathe in a row”, that is how photographer Giorgi Shermazanashvili puts it. This ropeway connects
Khulo and Tago. It is the second largest in Europe that has no support structure. The length of the ropeway is 1719 metres, and its height 280 metres.

According to the locals, the village would be abandoned if it were not for the ropeway. It is not only used by people but also to move domestic animals. Quite some tourists are afraid of using it, but the man in charge reassures everybody, that the ropeway is safe and works fine.
