1. Hike to Gergeti glacier

One of the most popular day hikes in Georgia. It climbs from Stepantsminda village to the foot of Gergeti glacier covering Mt. Kazbegi. On the way, you will pass the beautifully situated Tsminda Sameba church, probably the most famous Georgian landmark. As its parameters suggest, this walk is ideal for really fit hikers. Walkers with less stamina and more money can start their walk from the church, which is accessible by jeep.

Distance: 22km (there and back)

Duration: 9 hours

Elevation gain: 1500m up and down

2. From Mazeri to Mestia through Guli pass

One of the most popular day hikes in Svaneti, this very demanding walk offers superb views of Ushba mountain. If you are a slow walker and have a tent, you can split it into two days and spend unforgettable time camping by Koruldi lakes.

Distance: 20km

Duration: 9 hours

Elevation gain: 1400m up, 1500m down

3. From Juta to Roshka

The well-known trail connects the Kazbegi region with Khevsureti. It is very interesting due to the proximity of the imposing Chaukhi massif with its seven sharp peaks and necessity to scale the 3431 meters high Chaukhi pass. At the other side of the pass, you will find Abudelauri lakes – three beautiful alpine lakes with different colors (green, blue and white). I prefer to spend more time in the area and explore the wonderful Arkhoti valley, but the trail is also doable if you have only one day. If you start early from Juta, you will arrive at Roshka in the late afternoon. From there you can hire a jeep to Korsha village, sleep there and catch the morning bus to Tbilisi. And if that sounds too hard, you can make only a pleasant walk to the foot of Chaukhi massif and return back to Juta.

Distance: 18km

Duration: 9 hours

Elevation gain: 1400m up, 1800m down
