Stepansminda, is a small village, also known as Kazbegi, located in the high Caucasus. On the banks of the Terek River, it is the last place in Georgia before the border with Russia but is most known for the picturesque small church dominating the village from a small hill, with the impressive Mt Kazbeg in the background.
Kazbegi is easy to reach from Tbilisi, and getting there is a beautiful trip through the Caucasus, on the famous ?military road?, built during the Tsars times; it is one of the three roads which cross the High Caucasus.
A day hike up to the feet of Mt Kazbeg is a nice thing to do and it is just wonderful to look down to the valley from the high meadows where flowers and butterflies catch your eyes all way up.
Tsminda Sameba is the Georgian name of this small church; other call it Gergeti, Holy Trinity Chuch; in the village, people name it shortly Sameba. Wlking up for a visit is really a good thing to do!
- Pros:Beautiful hikes
- In a nutshell:Feel the presence of the power of nature
I do not remember the name of the ?pension? where I stayed in Stepansminda The tip here is: don?t worry, don?t make... more travel advice
Walking up to Mt Kazbeg takes three-four hours one way, and that makes a very nice day hike; I mean walking to the feet... more travel advice
