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.

  • The views around offer stunning, impossible not to drive, besides a great road you can drive your car, and admire the views.

  • Fairy-tale view. Seen from the terrace of the Rooms you can see the church/Monastery high up on a peak and there behind a gigantic 5000 m tall snow-clad mountain. In the village below genuine life in simple buildings. You travel to Georgia to see a slightly different world and it is fulfilled.

  • The church is wonderful and would deserve 5 stars if only it would have been preserved from massive, uncontrolled tourism. There is a nice and easy hiking option to go to the church which I highly recommend. Though it happens that most of tourists flows is coming by car through the road that has been built. Such a pity!!!!
  • One of the best place in Georgia to see. Love the natural beauty of this place. One of the best relaxing places that you must visit and explore the historical landscape around. You will enjoy the experience of seeing the history of this Church in the top of mountains of Kazbegi near Russian border. I advise you visit this place if you are already in Georgia
