We got up as the sun filled our room with light, looked through the window and caught a sight of our day’s destination – the Shkhara mountain’s glacier. Shkhara is the highest point in Georgia and one of the highest peaks in the whole Caucasus mountain range. Needless to say, it is a marvelously looking wonder of nature.
One early and bright summer morning in Tbilisi I woke up after a good night’s sleep and decided to visit the mountainous Svaneti region, which I heard was stunningly picturesque. Went to the Vagzali bus station where the intercity marshrutkas are waiting for travellers and at 7 o’clock me and my boyfried were already setting off to an adventure.
Built in the 4th century and now restored to its previous glory, Nekresi monastery complex presents you with beautiful views of Alazani valley and a glimpse of unique early Georgian architecture.
During my trip to Georgia, I got to know what Kakheti has to offer quite well, as I had a chance to go on a great roadtrip around the region. I’ve seen so many churches, monasteries and other heritage sites that after a while some of them began to look exactly the same to me. It’s never a good sign to lose sense of excitement while travelling, so I created a list of my favorite places which are most worthy of your visit, to my mind.
