Hi, you mean for one day hiking? If so, Kazbegi- no doubt. For Svaneti you need 2 days at least ..

You are welcome! Marshrutka leaving to Svaneti from the nearby station at the railway early in the morning. At around 12 midday you'll be in Mestia. You can get a taxi from there to Ushguli and back. Than you may have trekking to the Koruldi lake, locals will show you the path. On the second day - visiting Xergiani museum and you should try the airbus as well. Speechless ! and later that day head off back to Tilisi or continue to Batumi ...

It was raining the last week of September in Svaneti. Too cold and foggy so October may have the same weather. Better check those weather sites for forecast otherwise Kazbegi is the best bet.
