A Russian tourist has been found dead as a result of an avalanche on Kobi-Gudauri highway, the head of the rescuers of the Mountain Resorts Development Company Vako Dundua told Georgian First Channel.
Dundua said the tourist entered the forbidden zone without relevant equipment.
“The avalanche on Kobi-Gudauri highway fell yesterday. A four-person group of tourists was skiing in the forbidden zone, which was likely to trigger an avalanche. The avalanche killed one tourist, while others survived,” Vako Dundua said.
