One day trip to Kazbegi - Gergeti Trinity Church

Gergeti trinity church (Tsminda Sameba in Georgian) was built in 14th century. It is situated on Mount Kazbegi, one of the highest and most beautiful peaks of Caucasus, at an elevation of 2400 meters, in the village of Gergeti near Stepantsminda. Gergeti church is the main chapel of Khevi. You can take a minibus from Didube station, get off in the central square of Stepantsminda and then have a walk up to the mountain. It is a popular place for trekkers.
