Detailed Itinerary:

We will leave Tbilisi early in the morning and head along curvy mountain roads to Samtskhe-Javakheti to visit Paravani - the largest lake in Georgia. Parvani lies at 2072 meters above sea level. It's one of the highest-located water reservoirs in the country. Locals call the area - Georgian Siberia due to low winter temperatures.
In the past, the Russian Tsars used Paravani and its vicinity as an exile destination. Today, the region is home to a significant Armenian community. Weather permitting, we may spot several of its members fishing from the ice on the frozen lake.
After finishing our stroll, we will drive to the nearby town of Poka. Here stands a small nunnery named after St. Nino. The nuns run a small extracurricular school for local children and produce a variety of goods, including cheese, jams, honey, and chocolate.
Right before lunchtime, we will take one more short drive to Lake Saghamo to look at a small local fish farm. Saghamo is a great bird-watching point, so if you own binoculars, take them with you.
We will stop at a small local restaurant/ guesthouse owned by the Margaryan family for lunch. The delectable homemade dishes are a real culinary treat. Time permitting, on the way back to Tbilisi, we will stop in Tsalka Village and take a short walk to St. George's Church. The tiny temple rises on the edge of the Dashbashi Canyon, offering a fantastic view of the gorge. Return to Tbilisi. The end of the trip.
