Mount Ushba, 4,710 m, GEORGIA/SVANETI, Mount Ushba in Georgia has one of the Caucasus’ most characteristic silhouettes. The impressive Great Caucasus range is by far the wildest mountain chain in Europe and it is one of the world’s 25 Biodiversity hotspots, with as many as 1,600 plant species that exist nowhere else on earth. In 2009, a Russian initiative saw the Caucasus leopard re-introduced to the Russian side of these mountains.
