Gergeti Trinity Church, Stepantsminda

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.

  • Be sure to climb on foot to the Church. We climbed to the 10-month-old child, and the path took 1.5 hours one way. Once even stopped his feed (chest) =) must Go the pedestrian trail, and not on the road. We got there on the rose, and there's a cool kind of a while back decided to diversity on the auto-it much longer and very dirty. Probably there's not bad in a dry time of year, but we hoidli in March. N ive never take service taxi drivers, so you will not be able to assess the entire beauty.

  • Who loves mountains and fresh ear. Its the place you need to go. Driving from tbilisi 3 hours tops. Maybe less. ) great views)
  • 1 of the most iconic buildings in Georgia at least from a tourist point of view. It's a decent hike up. I really recommend walking up as reading the reviews from those who rented a vehicle it actually seems more comfortable. I highly recommend going early in the morning. I left my hostel at about 7am and got up to top around 8:15am and had it almost to myself but on the way down I passed dozens of people so really felt it was worth the early start.
  • Unforgettable experience... Truly an amazing place..
  • Wow. It's just unbelievably beautiful place. Breathtaking views.
  • Though the journey to reach on top might be a bit tiring, the view is breath taking. Snow clad mountains is a sight to behold. The church is really old and it feels like you went back in time and got to relive the past. Everything was just amazing.
