This ancient route through the Caucasus has been much celebrated by everyone from poets to guidebook writers. The road is remarkable for its landscapes, flora and fauna, people and history, and many travelers to Georgia will regard this as a highlight of their visit.
Stop at Ananuri fortified monastery (66 km from Tbilisi). Ananuri is a castle complex set on the Aragvi river. The fortifications consist of two castles joined by a crenelated curtain wall. The upper fortification with a large square tower, known as Sheupovari, is well preserved and is the location of the last defense of the Aragvi against the Shamshe. The lower fortification, with a round tower, is mostly in ruins.
Proceed to Gudauri (56 km from Ananuri), a famous Georgian ski resort, located on the south-facing plateau of Greater Caucasus Mountain range. Stop at the panoramic view site in Gudauri for photography and enjoying landscapes.
Drive to Stepantsminda/Kazbegi town (35 km from Gudauri).

Visit to Gergeti Trinity Church(14th century), which is situated on the right bank of the river Chkheri, at an elevation of 2170 meters (7120 feet), under mount Kazbegi. Its isolated location on top of a steep mountain surrounded by the vastness of nature has made it a symbol for Georgia. The church is a popular way point for trekkers in the area, but we will reach it by jeep up a rough mountain trail (~30 minutes).
