Welcome to Kazbegi, Georgia’s most popular Caucasus Mountains retreat. We spent over a week in the region in summer 2020, splitting our time between Kazbegi town (officially Stepantsminda) and Juta. Kazbegi is easily accessible from the capital, Tbilisi.
It takes around 3.5 hours to get there by marshrutka or car/taxi, heading north on the scenic Georgian Military Highway. There is plenty to see and do in the region beyond visiting the famous hilltop Gergeti Trinity Church. In this film we show you the best places to visit in Kazbegi, including Truso Valley, Gveleti Waterfall, Dariali Gorge, Tsdo village, Gergeti Glacier, the stone carved heads of Sno, and the gorgeous Juta Valley (aka ‘The Dolomites of Georgia’).
