The climb to the bottom of the glacier is along side to a flowing stream with extra ordinary scenery of mountains and un touched vegetation, wild nature. You can walk 3 hours from Ushgoi or drive a 4x4 car and then walk 1 hour to...More

This hike is a wonderful option for a day trip from Mestia. The surrounding landscape is just fantastic, especially on a clear and sunny day. Avoid rainy days since the path is quite rocky and it leads close to the wild icy river which might...More

Reviews were right, the way there by walk is nothing special, but cheapest option. Hike to the summit was stunning, beautiful way and the glacier is really nice.

Nice hike, second half on the rock is little bit more difficult. I recomended to drive to the start of bike and do not start in the town. Road from the town is flat, boring and very dusty.

Beautiful walk on the snow, next to the river and the mountains. We were there on April, it was snowing and we couldn't see the glacier because of the amount of snow, but the walk was worth it.

Most of the hike is over easy terrain. The trail is clear, starting just after the suspension foot bridge. No guide is needed, you just have to know where the trail starts. Near the end the glacier has deposited piles of rubble and many of...More

About 6km hike in the valley which unfortunately is a construction site right now, so if you have the ability to skip it with a car you should in my opinion. Then 1.5 hours hike up to the glacier. The road is nice, chilly and...More
