Are there any trekking maps of Svanetia available abroad? I'd like to purchase the maps before arriving to Georgia.

The preferred map scale is at least 1:50.000, however 1:100.000 would also fit in last resort. It would be at best, if the actual tourist trails (if any) were shown there.

Genshtab maps

As a former Soviet Union member state, Georgia is well-covered by the Genshtab maps, Soviet military topographic maps. In a scale of 1:50.000, they cover the entire nation. Genshtab maps can be downloaded online, or are for sale from various sources, such as the aforementioned omnimap, or from (quite expensive).
