Church
One of Georgia's most iconic sights, Gergeti Trinity Church sits on a mountain top surrounded by vast stretches of rolling hills and valleys. Depending on the season, it features only a few colors, from grass and sky, to snow and rugged cliffs in the background. Hike to the church or take a taxi to this remote spot, located at an elevation of 2,170 m (7,120 ft). Breathe the crisp mountain air and listen to the sounds of pristine nature. View the 14th-century red stone Orthodox church from up-close and snap photos of the majestic site. Be sure to dress comfortably for this rugged windy place.

  • Climb here on foot takes about two hours, but it is definitely worth it. In addition, I'd recommend not to walk on the road where the cars run. You constantly have to concede them, places Miss each other virtually none, you get a little pleasure from the lift. From the village of Gergeti is a narrow path, with her and offers beautiful views of the mountains. In addition, you don't have to look for a place every three minutes to give way to cars coming. The Church itself, a very spiritual place, it felt. Women cannot go inside the bareheaded and wearing pants, but at the entrance is a large cardboard box, where you can take the shawls and "skirt" and of course the Church offer sweeping views overlooking the gergeti, Stepancmindu and mountain.

  • Maybe a slepp to get up to the church (tip: hire a taxi!; best after snowfall so some excitement Comes into the drive). Once you are on top th eview will reward you, also the frugalitiy of the church ...  more »
  • You may think commercialism visiting places that you see on most photos from Georgia, but I assure you that the way to this place to be for you something more than just another attraction. Although that gets on top of the costs (we paid our 70 gel for two people), it's really some of the best money spent in my life. Total off-road. And this view of the monastery. something beautiful and worth.
