One of Georgia's most iconic sights, Gergeti Trinity Church sits on a mountain top surrounded by vast stretches of rolling hills and valleys. Depending on the season, it features only a few colors, from grass and sky, to snow and rugged cliffs in the background. Hike to the church or take a taxi to this remote spot, located at an elevation of 2,170 m (7,120 ft). Breathe the crisp mountain air and listen to the sounds of pristine nature. View the 14th-century red stone Orthodox church from up-close and snap photos of the majestic site. Be sure to dress comfortably for this rugged windy place.

Gergeti Trinity Church Reviews
Советую отправляться в это путешествие пешком, потому что на авто больше половины эмоций и впечатлений вы потеряете, подъем и спуск не так сложны как кажутся на первый взгляд, всё путешествие наверх и... more »I advise to go on this journey on foot, because on the car more than half of the emotions and impressions you lose, the ascent and descent are not as complex as they seem at first glance, all the journey to the top and back takes 3 hours maximum. Wear comfortable shoes and get in the way!
La peculiarità di questo monastero è la sua collocazione in mezzo a panorami mozzafiato. Vale la pena raggiungerlo per questo. La struttura in sé merita ma dal punto di vista architettonico e storico ... more »The peculiarity of this monastery is its location amidst breathtaking panoramas. It's worth achieving for this. The structure itself deserves but from the architectural and historical-cultural point of view I found it in the average.
So absolutely cool! What a total gem this church, and the country of Georgia is. This was a fantastic experience that I can't wait to share with more people. Easy enough hike for healthy adventurers. Those that aren't, book an inexpensive trek up in a van. Our guide didn't speak a touch of English, but did speak Russian. His driving would've had me arrested back home. Glad we made it safely to and from even if I was totally in edge both literally and figuratively speaking. Would be happier to walk next time, maybe. It does get windy. So, keep that in mind. Be respectful of the areas they ask you not to photograph too.
Beautiful church on top of a mountain. Our hotel told us it would take 2-3 hours to hike. In late March with still snow everywhere it took us about 5-6 hours round trip hiking up it. We walked through town and up the roads for the majority of time as snow was too deep. It was just as beautiful and if you leave early in the morning there will be few people driving up the mountain. Of note, google maps doesn’t show the hiking trails available up there but you can download them off of the maps.me app.
