FAQs: Hiking in Georgia

What should I know about Hiking Georgia?

The mountains of Georgia form the famous Little Caucasus, whose average elevation is around 2000 meters. The highest peaks are situated on the Russian side.

Why should I choose Georgia for my Hiking adventure?

Stepantsminda

This is a small town still known by its original name Kazbegi, very accessible from the Georgian capital, Tbilisi. In addition to its several hiking trails, it has an emblematic church that stands out in front of the snow-capped summit of Mount Kazbek (5033 m).

The towering houses ‘koshkebi’

In Tbilisi you can admire a sharp stone tower that stands on a hillside. Austere and with an almost cartoonish appearance, this is one of the "koshkebi" or medieval tower-houses that give a magical touch to the mountain villages of Georgia.

Security

In the 1990s, the Georgian Caucasus Mountains were unfortunately famous for the lack of security in the area. However, since 2004, with the new Sakashvili's government, the only "dangers" you can face are the shepherd dogs and the intense hospitality of the locals.

Which language is predominantly spoken in the Georgia region?

Georgian language. It uses its own alphabet, which is impossible to understand for foreigners.

What can I expect from the weather during my Hiking trip in Georgia?

Winter is very rainy, with lots of snowfall. The lower areas, such as Svaneti, usually have hot and long summers, but as the altitude increases, the weather gets cooler.

When is the best time to travel to Georgia for Hiking?

Spring and summer months, from May to September. July and August are the best months for hiking.

What currency is accepted around Georgia?

Georgian Lari
