“If you visit the country in winter, you will love these mountains”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Wonderful, white and peaceful mountains, full of small beautiful corners, frozen trees, iced rivers and silent birds... A place to enjoy nature like no other.

“Arakadz Mountain Hike: An easy hike, great value, excellent views”
Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

The hike takes you from Kari Lake ( elev 3200m) to the 2 summits of Arakadz. Mountain, an extinct volcano. Kari is reached via car. The road takes you through spectacular views of Scotland- like ranges, bedouin Yezdi herds, and real honey making locals who'll sell it for 10$ per kilo, freshly collected from the hive!!

The hike is easy, takes 3 hrs to reach summit 1. ( elev 3880 m). The 1 hour extra to reach the north facing summit 2, elev4080 m. You can view the caldera, and even photograph Mt. Ararat from here.

The whole trip with private guide, taxi costs 45,000 Drams( roughly 110 US$).

“Awesome must to see place”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

Fantastic view of Kazbek mountain and Gergeti Church. The Military Highway condition is poor and it is tiring to get to Kazbek, but once you get there you feel all the magnificence of this area. I will definitely visit this area one more time :)

“See the Caucasus Mountains in All Three Countries”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

We went very high in the Caucasus Mountains in Azerbiajan, and Georgia. Life up there is as it was in times long ago. Khynalyg village out of Guba is really worth the effort.

We then, in Georgia, drove to Gudauri, stayed over night, and then crossed over the high pass to Kazbegi to see the Kazbegi Trinity Church, one of the most famous churches in the world.

The mountains are amazing. Will be up again when further into this trip.
