What to Expect
A trip to the semi-desert slopes of the Gareja Ridge. On the way, stop at the store. Walk through the monastery complex on arrival. Altogether 14 monastery ensembles built at different times - Lavra David, Mohatuli, Tsamebuli, Nutlis-Mtsemeli, Dodos Rka and others - were found here.

In the 11th century, in the Lavra of David, a terraced courtyard was built, new cells, a refectory and a church were built. Soon they built a swimming pool, canals and tanks. David Garedji reaches its peak in the 11th-13th centuries. Walk to the monastery Udabno, near which you can enjoy a spacious view of Azerbaijan from the Georgian side. In Udabno there are magnificent frescoes, reflecting religious themes, made in a special technique and color. Some of the frescoes are portraits of historical figures - David the Builder (in Nattlis-Mtsemeli), the queen Tamara (in Bertubani), as well as the biblical events (The Last Supper, Raising the Cross). After a short rest, descent along the trail.
