The moment we stepped out of our vehicle, we stumbled upon this magnificent view. It reminded us once again of how great and marvelous the Creator is. The sun was out but the temperature up there was very cold.
On top of a hill in Gergeti township in Georgia is the Gergeti Trinity Church. This is located 7120 ft above sea level. This is one of the Georgian Church’s pilgrimage sites. The road going uphill is quite rough but the moment you reach the top, I assure you that it is worth it. From Tbilisi, it would take around 3-4 hours ( I guess?) going to Gergeti and when reaching Gergeti, we had to ride a 4wd off road vehicle because of road condition. Travel is around 30 mins from Gergeti town going uphill.
On our way to Gergeti, we made a stop over in this river they call Aragvi River to freshen up.
One of the special places we have visited is the Ananuri Fortress. The location is always packed with visitors and pilgrims alike but no matter how many people would come to visit, what I really noticed is, this place is just so peaceful and calm. I think it is because this site is surrounded by plain nature. It is just so amazing.
Wifey’s favorite is the paragliding activity in Gudauri. Well, for me, at first few minutes. Here’s why. Before take off, I was excited and when I was already airborne, I was for a minute enjoying and amazed with the view; but not long after few movements and after going in circles, I was already nauseous. But for wifey’s case, she enjoyed most of the time. Anyways, I am still happy that I have tried it at least once in my entire life – bucketlist checked! lol
This part of our Georgia journey was one of a kind, unique and worth the effort. Will surely treasure the memories we had and definitely will go back one of these days.
Until then, Madloba Georgia! 🙂
