Nenskra HPP project company - JSC Nenskra Hydro has created a new website - www.chubekhevi.ge - to promote domestic tourism in Svaneti.
The bilingual website was created within the framework of the Nenskra Hydro information campaign and aims to inform Georgian and foreign tourists about the tourist potential of the still unknown places of Mestia Municipality - Nenskra and Nakra valleys.
Website name - "Chubekhevi" is the historical name of the two valleys of Upper Svaneti, where the administrative units of Chuberi and Nakra are located.

In the blog section, interesting articles are published about the history and legends of Chubekhevi, the distinctive Chubekhevi population, the tourist places there and Svan cuisine.
Nenskra Hydro, an information campaign called "Visiting Chubekhevi", was launched in July 2019 as part of the "Spend Summer in Georgia" tourism support project. Various activities were carried out in the media and social networks: a number of stories, video clips, photographs and articles about the tourist potential of the valleys were prepared and distributed. Within the framework of the project, a FACEBOOK page was also created, which invites visitors to Chubekhevi with friendly language and impressive pictures.
"The crisis caused by the spread of coronavirus has hurt the tourism sector this year. That is why we decided to continue the information campaign through the website with more efforts, to introduce this beautiful part of Svaneti to the public and to contribute to the development of domestic tourism. In addition to the campaign, Nenskra Hydro has implemented a number of social projects in Chuber and Nakra, including to support tourism development: English language and computer management, as well as family-type hotel management courses, promoting land registration and improving domestic infrastructure, ” stated Teimuraz Kopadze, Chief Operations Officer of JSC Nenskra Hydro.

The company will construct a high-dam HPP in Mestia Municipality, in the valleys of the Nenskra and Nakra.
