Enjoy a ride along the legendary Georgian Military highway up to Stepantsminda Village. On the way you will see the Jinvali water reservoir, the impressive Ananuri fort, stop by some mineral water springs for refreshment, and of course enjoy the scenic views from the Friendships monument in Gudauri.
Our final destination is Gveleti, a small village some 7km away from Kazbegi towards the Georgian-Russian border. Here we start our hike to the beautiful Great Gveleti waterfall - the path becomes narrow as it leads you through a green gorge along a wild mountain river.
The hike takes about 1 hour one way and includes a little bit of elevation gain. The water in the river offers a perfect source of refreshment along the trek.
After the trek, we stop at Daryal gorge to enjoy the view over the mountains and a valley. On the way back we recommend stopping at a restaurant which is famous among locals for its khinkali, Georgian dumplings and finishes the day with a good and authentic dinner.
