We will leave Tbilisi in the morning and head to the Imereti region. Our first stop will be Modinakhe – a reconstructed medieval fortress towering over Sachkhere.

Next, we will drive to the mining town of Chiatura, where we will stop at the medieval rock-carved Mghvimevi Monastery and take a cable car ride to the ruins of the former Pioneer Palace. We will also visit an old cable car station and enjoy lunch with a local family.

Finally, we will visit the fascinating impressive 40-meter-high Katskhi Pillar, with a tiny hermitage built on top of it. While climbing to the top of the pillar is forbidden for secular people, the view of the church is one of the most iconic in Georgia.

Return to Tbilisi in the evening. The end of the tour.
