Truso Valley is located in the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region, Kazbegi municipality. The valley was formed by the river Tergi, on the northern slope of the Caucasus Mountains, between the main watershed of the Caucasus Mountains and Khokhi Ridge, from the Truso Pass to the village Kobi (length 25km).
The lowest part of the valley is 2000 m above sea level (near the village Kobi). Truso Valley consists of strongly folded layers of lower-and Middle-Jurassic slate-sandstones, Upper-Jurassic carbonate layers. Diorite intrusions are exposed on the Khokhi ridge. Upper-Pliocene-Pleistocene-Holocene effusions (andesites, etc.), travertines derived from mineral waters, glacial, and river sediments are widespread. There are modern glaciers on the surrounding ridges (west, middle, and east Suatisi, Mna, Resi and etc.). Old glacial trogues, circuses, moraines; Volcanic cones, and lava flows are well-apparent.
Truso Valley is rich with hydro carbonic mineral waters. Keterisi and Abano are rivers with great outflow. There are almost no plants in the valley. It is covered with subalpine and alpine grasses. Truso Valley is on the edge of depopulation.
