Another attractive descent made from Ushguli is made in the valley just west from the village. The route starts in the smaller village called Murkmeli. You can drive by car to the starting point and start skinning directly from the side of the road. This ski tour first leads to a first summit and descents 2 km down from the west ridge to join the initial route up again. From here you walk up again and you continue more east on the ridge to descent north bound back to the village.
Please pay close attention to the elevation in the terrain on your way up as to choose a descent without terrain traps. As always, make sure the snow conditions are suitable for doing this tour, you can analyse this during the hike up by digging a snow profile.
