We will leave Tbilisi early in the morning and head to Tedzami River Valley. Our first stop will be the Church of the Mother of God in Chachubeti Village. Here we will start the hiking. Our first destination will be Ikvi Church, a cross-in-square church dated to the 11th century. The road to the church follows an old earth road surrounded by trees, forested mountains, and gentle meadows.
From Ikvi church, we will head to the medieval Rkoni Monastery. The main temple of the monastery dates to the VII century. Our last stop will be the picturesque Tamar's Bridge, one of the best-prserved stone bridges in Georgia. This medieval construction offers a splendid opportunity for more and less romantic spring photos. From Tamar's Bridge, we will hike back to Rkoni village, where we will meet our vehicle. Next, we will drive to Mtskheta to enjoy our Supra. Return to Tbilisi. End of the tour.
