Gergeti Trinity Church, Stepantsminda
(4.9/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Since you have arrived to Kezbegi, you have no excuse to go up there and visit the splendid Gergeti Church! You don't want to miss the ethereal beauty of the scenery from up there, or the green terrai...  more »
  • Disappointed how many people take a car up as it's a perfectly manageable hike if you're even vaguely fit. You can follow the road up or cut straight through the forest if you're feeling adventurous. ...  more »
  • If you're not going to climb on this church that point in the trip to Stepansmindu No. But if you do not regret it. The place is certainly unusual and beautiful! If you are overweight or you're not really prepared you will be very hard to climb on foot, there are many who travel, but of course if the creep Peck the sensations catchy) after climbing you will find cute little church on the hill with a small gift. View course from there is very beautiful and the mountain shrines betrays her mysteriousness. All in all the place is very interesting and beautiful. If you're lucky with the weather that can surprise Kazbek.

  • Amazimg place. The curch is beautiful and the landscape is truely amazing. Must visit place in georgia.
  • The hike took us 1.5 hours, the scenery on the way was amazing. I recommend to walk to the church as it is not hard.
  • The most iconic church of Georgia stood on a small mountain. Young and fit one can walk up to the church from the Kazbegi town for about 75 minute one way. It is also possible to hire a jeep to go up the church. The walking experience is good and the scenery is perfect. Bring a water bottle and you can fill it up when u arrive the top. The church only allowed men in long pants and women in long skirt. No pants are rented for men here but some skirts are borrowed to women for free. No photos are allowed to be taken inside the church.
  • Beautiful place. The views from up there are amazing. Highly recommended.
  • Wonderful place, magnific view, bumpy road up here or a 3h hiking but worth it!
