In the article with title "An alternative to the Alps, Georgia"
Bowes states that "Hiking from village to village in the
breathtaking Svaneti region of the Caucasus will make you wonder
why you ever bothered with the Alps".
She also claims that "the food is delicious and cheap, the
people incredibly welcoming (playing visitors with chacha, the
local hooch), and the ice-topped peaks tower above many in the
Alps, exceeding 4,000 meters".
