Beautiful Stepantsminda - a Must See Place in Georgia!

There is a place in Georgia we would love to return to. It is called Stepantsminda and is located in the stunning Kazbegi mountains. It reminded us a bit of Switzerland and Slovenia with all the mountains and rivers but everything else was completely different to those countries (the food, culture..). I listed some photos to show you this beauty!

Stepansminda in the Kazbegi mountains is about 2.5 - 3 hours drive away from Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. We went there by taxi as this is one of the common ways of transfer in Georgia (about 150 GEL - 50 EUR) but you can also take the Georgian minibus called Mashrutka (10 GEL - 4 EUR in one way). I loved the drive to Stepansminda as it was sooo picturesque. Make sure to ask your driver to stop at the beautiful church called Ananuri.

We stayed in Stepansminda 3 days in total (you can go for a day trip from Tbilisi too but I recommend you to stay for a few days at least!). Our B&B was called Alpenhouse. The highlight of this stay was the view from the terrace. That was priceless! If you are wondering if this is a good place to stay in Stepansminda, we can say, yes it is for the view and its delicious breakfast. Although its location is spectacular, it has also its disadvantage - you need to walk about 20 min to the village if you need something ;)

The second day we went for the hike to the famous Gergeti trinity church. It took us about 1.5 h to reach the top. The landscape on the way was simply fantastic! However, we were surprised about all the tourist crowds we saw once visiting the church but the hike up and down was peaceful with not so many people around. All those crowds apparently came by jeeps (yes, it is possible to reach the top by a 4WD). Anyway, it is still an amazing place to go!!

It is hard to describe the beauty in words so I hope the photos speak for themselves. It is one of the places, I think, everyone should go when exploring Georgia.

    Hi Jenny

    Thanks for your comment! We went at the end of August! It was still a bit hot by then, so I'd recommend to go in September or October!

    Enjoy :)

    My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
