Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • Took a fun off road drive up to the Gergeti Trinity Church. For me the view from up top was the truly amazing part of the journey, a fantastic view of the mountains towering over the town of Stepantsminda .
  • Even if you come here and dive into a cloud, if it worth the effort.
  • Yeah it's hard to reach there But the view there is worth The mountain, to look to the city from up and the church.. all lovely Don't miss it..
  • Great historical place, we went in May so the weather was not stable but a car lift up works and was a great view over the fog.
  • You really should hike up here if you're a healthy person. The whole spell will be broken otherwise. Before June you really need a wind proof jacket; may be not for the hike but you really need it when you get the top of the hill.
