Kazbek mountain with the Gergeti Trinity church, also called Tsminda Sameba. Here we were surrounded by an amazing landscape with cream top mountains. We started from Kazbegi, also known as Stepantsminda. It's a small town north of Georgia and located 10km away from the Russian border. The town is located in a beautiful valley with the Kazbek Mountain as the highest peak in the country with 5,047 meters.

The Gergeti Trinity Church acts as a place for pilgrimages. Everybody who want to be blessed have to walk all the way to the top of the hill by foot. The church is an iconic symbol of Georgia. It`s situated at the bottom of the Kazbek mountain peak. This is the place where Georgian kings kept their holy relics and other such treasures. The church is one of the most sacred churches in Georgia. It was built in the 14th century.

The Gergeti Trinity Church is surrounded by breathtaking mountains with snow tops. Mount Kazbek is the third highest mountain in Georgia after Shkhara and Janga, and the seventh highest peak in the Caucasus mountain range. Georgians call the mountain “the white bride." 

Delved into the Greater Caucasus Mountains and marvel at the rugged beauty of the Georgian countryside on this private 10-hour Kazbegi tour from Tbilisi. We visited the scenic town of Stepantsiminda, where life ticks by at a relaxing pace, and to ascended to the top lwhere Gergeti Trinity Church. Enjoyed the breathtaking views all around, down to the valley and up to the snowcapped mountain peaks around. 

Gergetian Trinity - the Caucasus Mountains in the Georgian architectural complex. Because the Trinity which is situated at the altitude of 2200 meters gives you feeling of being closer to God, mysterious scenery strengthens this feeling.
