I would like to implement high availability setup in Subversion servers. What would be the recommended options. I know that subversion does not provide HA feature ( Wandisco does but it's costly). I am familiar with HAProxy but svnsync only sync master to mirror so I could not use HA proxy. Could you please suggest a recommended option?

I do not believe there is any official way to do this.

Unofficially, it is possible to host your repositories on a NFS mount that is then mounted by multiple SVN servers and load balance between them. It is up to you to test it and make it work but it is possible. I would only do this with an Enterprise Grade NAS that has fast SSD storage and even then it definitely slower than a single server using a fast local RAID array. But if you have some real need to have this sort of setup it is possible.

Of course with an Enterprise NAS it is also possible to have the storage snapshot replicated to a second location as a failover.
