Stop At: Aragvi River of Two Colors Viewpoint, ს3, ფასანაური, Georgia

Near the village of Pasanauri we will see one of the wonders of nature – the Merging of the White and Black Aragvi. At this point, the two channels of the Aragvi River join together and, without mixing, flow colored in light gray and dark color. It looks very unusual and amazing. This rare and surprising natural phenomenon in this place can be observed almost at arm’s length.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Russian Georgian Friendship Monument, Georgian Military Highway, Gudauri 383085 Georgia

We will drive through the winter ski resort – Gudauri and then stop at the monument, which is called the Friends of the Nations of Georgia and Russia among people. This observation deck, built in 1983, with a mosaic panoramic wall is located at an altitude of 2395m above sea level – this is the highest point of the pass. The monument was built in honor of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of St. George between Georgia and Russia. This is an ideal place for photographing and admiring the mountains of the Greater Caucasus.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Mineral Springs, Военно-Грузинская дорога, Gudauri 4702 Georgia

Passing the Cross Pass, we move on and stop near the next wonderful place. Here we can observe the Travertine rock with our own eyes. It consists of the same material from which stalactites form in caves. Water enriched with minerals and now flows over this rock, shimmering and giving it such an attractive and breathtaking view that it is impossible to resist and not touch it with your own hands.

And here, on the other side of the road, in a small depression, a narzan source beats, from where you can drink real natural Narzan!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Gergeti Trinity Church, Stepantsminda Georgia

Now we are going to Stepantsminda – a mountain settlement named in honor of St. Stepan, who once saved the city and its inhabitants from an impending avalanche. All members of our group must decide who wants to go to the church of the Gerget Trinity, and who will wait for them here in one of the local restaurants. This question arises for the reason that the ascent to Gergeti is not very comfortable. It can only be reached by off-road minibuses provided by local residents. The road is very bumpy. But still it is worth doing this, because going up to the Gergeti monastery is the culmination of our amazing journey.

From the church of the Gerget Trinity, there is a breathtaking view of the city of Stepantsminda, the majestic mountains surrounding it and of course the Kazbek mountain. Glacier – The Bride (as the locals call it) gives Kazbegi a look …. I probably won’t write about what the peak of Kazbek looks like. Come, go up to the Gergeti Church, breathe the purest mountain air and admire all this beauty!
