Day Trip to the Kazbegi-Ananuri Mountain Area from Tbilisi
US$ 34.50
Overview
Take a drive through history on this full day trip along the the Georgian Military Highway from Tbilisi into the Kazbegi mountain area. Relax as someone else drives the winding roads, enjoying sights along the way including Zhinvali Dam, Ananuri fortress, Gudauri ski resort, and the Treaty of Georgievsk Monument. A small group size means you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.
What to Expect

During the 9-hour guided day trip from Tbilisi, you will see important locations of Georgian culture and history.

The Zhinvali Dam is a hydroelectric dam on the Aragvi River in Zhinvali, Georgia in the Caucasus Mountains. Despite its obviously artificial origins, the reservoir blends in with the surrounding environment perfectly and delights visitors with its turquoise waters. 

Ananuri is a fortress situated on the foreland by the Aragvi River, not far from Zhinvali water reservoir and about 70 km from Tbilisi, Georgia. It was built by the Dukes of Aragvi and its earliest parts date from the 13th century. The fortress is on the UNESCO Tentative list. The fortress consist of two fortifications joined by a crenelated curtain wall.

Stopping at Gudauri, this ski resort is located on the south-facing plateau of The Greater Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia. The resort is situated in the Stepantsminda District, along the Georgian Military Highway near the Cross Pass, at an elevation of 2,200 meters, above sea level with ski-able area enjoying maximum exposure to the sun. The resort offers high quality skiing opportunities. The slopes of Gudauri are completely above the tree line and are best for free-riders and are generally considered to be avalanche-safe. The ski season lasts from December to April.

Monument or Treaty of Georgievsk Monument is a monument built in 1983 to celebrate the bicentennial of the Treaty of Georgievsk and ongoing friendship between Georgia and Soviet Russia. Located on the Georgian Military Highway between the ski resort town of Gudauri and the Jvari pass, the monument is a large round stone and concrete structure overlooking the Devil's Valley in the Caucasus mountains.

IMPORTANT: Gergeti Trinity Church - You can visit from March to November (in winter, the road is not safe). There is a separate entrance charge for this attraction.
