Your Local Expert

Dimitri Kaulashvili

We are trekking guides, have been trekking and exploring the Caucasus Mountains for the last 10 years. I am a local guide and with my fellow friends, we organize everything ourselves. We stay at our friend's guesthouses, ride our horses, and drive our cars on the off-road. We aim to create a unique experience and introduce true Georgian local to our guests.

Day 2

Kazbegi-Gergeti Trinity Church-Gergeti Glacier-Kazbegi

HB, Hiking Distance 16 km, starting elevation: 1,740m, maximum elevation 3200m The hardest but probably the most beautiful part of your trip to Georgia is for this day. Our final destination is Gergeti Glacier (at 3200m), Its width is 6 km², length- 8.92 km. First, we hike to the famous Gergeti Trinity church which is located on the 2167 meters from sea level, right below the summit of Mt Kazbegi and above the small town of Stepantsminda. The church was built in the XIV century and is a must-see place in Georgia. After the church, we follow the mountains range and narrow gorges, passing the Sabertse pass and reaching to the Gergeti glacier. This day offers you a glistening mountain landscape with colliding glaciers, lush alpine meadows, roaring rivers and marvelous panorama views over the Great Caucasus Mountains.

Day 3

Kazbegi-Truso Valley – Kazbegi

Hiking Distance 20 km, starting elevation: 2050m, maximum elevation 2200m In the morning, we travel for Truso Valley which is located near Kazbegi. Truso valley suggests an absolutely different experience. A vast plain area surrounded by the high mountains, mineral waters, travertines, a lake with geysers and abandoned houses are just some reasons why you should visit this valley. We will take an easy hike around 6 hours (both way 20 km). Overnight at guesthouse in Kazbegi (Double/Twin rooms with private bathroom)read more
