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 Jvari monastery near Mtskheta(26 km from Tbilisi). The name of this monastery is translated as the “Monastery of the Cross”. Its construction is dated back to the sixth century and stands on the rocky mountaintop at the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers overlooking the town of Mtskheta, which was formerly the capital of the Kingdom of Iberia.

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 and can be reached by a steep 3 hour climb up the mountain, or around 30 minutes by jeep up a rough mountain trail (local 4×4 vehicles available for 10-15 $ per person for round trip).
