Gergeti Trinity Church, Stepantsminda

(4.9/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Place to visit! If you travel by 4WD, then easily reach the Church itself. For all other locals offer their "Marshrutki"-Mitsubishi Deliki. Athletes can get around on foot.

  • It's not very easy to get there. The fastest way is to hire a 4WD minivan (like Mitsubishi Delica) in Kazbegi and go on a very bumpy 40-50 minute ride along the winding dirt/rocks road, sometimes more...  more »
  • We, as inexperienced tourists arrived in Stepancmindu to 15-0000 (Travelling on a minibus from Tbilisi hours 3-3, 5). Economical, decided to find companions for rental cars. It turned out-everything is already down. In General, this is the place where you arrive in advance. Or from the evening and stay overnight in a hotel, and in the morning start up (for very easy-going), which will take approximately 3-3, 5:00. Or rent a car for 50 lari and go "with the breeze". We're efficient, pay 50 lari, bent. After one and a half hours lifting, realized that did not pass the half began to catch attempt. We picked up good Moscow girls. But the climb is worth it! This incomparable view! Kazbegi gorgeous. Back to the minibus in Tbilisi goes into 18-0000 or 18-30. We really do not get to it risk (you do remember that 1.5 hours we walked uphill only). So, friends! DO NOT REPEAT our mistakes. or with the utreca go on foot and ozdoravlivajtes' or with utreca take a car with a driver and drive for 50 lari.

  • 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!
