Kazbegi

Georgia
Kazbegi travel packages
This is most people’s destination on the Georgian Military Highway: a valley village beneath two of Georgia's most famous symbols, Mt. Kazbek and the Gergeti Trinity Monastery.

Also known as Stepantsminda, Kazbegi is an ideal base for exploring Georgia’s northern border. The drive to this town follows the Georgian Military Highway, a route carved through the mountains by Czarist Russia, through some of its most scenic areas and past some of its most famous landmarks. Your drive pass through the region's most famous ski area, Gudauri, and include stops at scenic vistas, such as the Ananuri Castle, and the cliffside Russia–Georgia Friendship Monument, which shows Russian and Georgian history via colorful tiles covering its interior. Paragliding is available next to the monument.

Kazbegi sits below the Gergeti Trinity Church, a national symbol located atop a mountain between the town and Mount Kazbek, a steep peak popular with mountaineers. The mountain can be ascended via a steep hike, but most visitors elect to be driven to the monastery by jeep. There are several waterfalls and valleys that can be explored between the town and the Russian border, ten miles to the north.
