Day Tour to Kazbegi
With more twists and turns than a hairpin mountain road, this day-trip will leave you exhilarated and engaged as we chat regional politics, ogle over extraordinary frescoes, our hands at making Khinkali and spot distant shepherd flocks, dwarfed by mind-blowing landscape.
Pit-stops include: Zhinvali reservoir, Ananuri fortress, the Russia–Georgia Friendship Monument and the jaw-dropping Jvari pass.
Just 12km from the Russian border we arrive at mysterious Kazbegi, where you can opt to continue on to 14th century Gegeti monastery on foot or by 4x4. Adventure is in store either way, with a short but challenging hike, or a nail-bitingly bumpy drive, and a mesmerising, more-than-worth-it final destination!
Finally, we will head down into the village for dinner with a local family. Find out what it takes to create the perfect Khinkali, before tucking into an impressive spread of local dishes, celebrating the day’s discoveries, as we raise our glasses of Chacha and homemade wine.
