Katskhi – the monastery on the top of the rock

This beautiful place is at the quiet Gomi-Chiatura-Zestafoni Road, in a picturesque part of Imereti Region. It takes up to 200 km long way from Tbilisi to reach Katskhi. You can make stops in Mtskheta, Uplistskhe, Gori and Chiatura (so it will be interesting one day long round trip) or to extend the journey till Kutaisi, where to overnight in a hotel and then to visit, for example, Sataplia National Park, Prometeus Cave, Martvili Canyons, Kinchkha Waterfalls or Okatse Canyon.
