In the morning, we leave Tbilisi and head north into the mountains along the Georgian Military Highway. We will make stops at Ananuri fortress and Russo-Georgian Friendship monument, then cross the 2379m high Jvari (Cross) pass. Afterward, we will leave the main road and after a short off-road ride, will leave our cars at the Kvemo Okrokana village to make a 4-5 hours long hike in the abandoned Truso valley. After returning to our cars, we will ride to the Stepantsminda (Kazbegi) village, where we will enjoy a dinner and spend a night at the local guesthouse.
Today, we will climb the Kazbegi massif towards the foot of the Gergeti glacier. If the weather cooperates, we will enjoy stunning views of surrounding mountains dominated by 5033m high Mt. Kazbeg.

After breakfast, we will take a car to the Juta village.

From here, we will descend to the colorful Abudelauri lakes and follow the trail to the Roshka village, where we will spend a night at the guesthouse.
In the morning, we will take cars and navigate the off-road descending into the Pshavi Aragvi valley.
