A detailed description of Kazbegi tour from Tbilisi attractions
Jinvali Dam and water reservoir.
The Jinvali Dam is a hydroelectric dam on the Aragvi River in the Caucasus Mountains. The building of the dam in 1986 formed the Jinvali Reservoir. Artificial Jinvali lake, which also supplies Tbilisi with drinking water, became one of the most loved attractions in the area. Georgians enjoy fishing and spending their hot summer days. Blue-green water in the lake creates a stunning landscape in combination with forest-covered mountains around.
Our private tour to Kazbegi goes on to the next point.
Erected in the XVI century to dominate on Aragvi river and a major trade road to the North Caucasus, Ananuti castle still stays proudly above the Jinvali water reservoir. The complex is surrounded by massive walls.
The upper fortification with a large square tower, known as Sheupovari, is well preserved and is the location of the last defense of the Aragvi against the Shanshe. The lower fortification, with a round tower, is mostly in ruins.
Within the complex, among other buildings, are two churches.
Gudauri Viewpoint (friendship monument)
There is nothing much to say about the monument itself, it is one more example of Soviet-era mosaiс. But views from there, deep down Aragvi gorge and the Great Caucasus mountains around are really stunning.
The highest point of our Journey during Kazbegi tour is the Cross pass. Its altitude is 2395m above sea level. Now we truly are on the top of the Great Caucasus range.
It is a very well-known attraction in the Kazbegi area. Holy Trinity church was erected on mount Gergeti, near the townlet Stephantsminda back in the XIV century. Dominating upon the area and standing in the shade of a gigantic mountain Kazbegi (5047m) was meant to be the northern outpost of Christianity. If you are very lucky with the weather, then behind the iconic church you will be able to see Kazbegi mountain in its glory. Even if the mountain is hiding in clouds, it is still a fantastic view.
Dariali gorge and Gveleti waterfall
The last spot of our fantastic Kazbegi tour is the north gates of Georgia – Dariali gorge. Narrow, from both sides high rocky walls made this place easy to defend. Gveleti waterfall is in a deep gorge and, you need to hike around 2 km. The hiking level is pretty easy. Gveleti is not accessible until the end of May.
