Day 3: Stepantsminda-jinvali-mutso-Shatili

After breakfast we will leave town and continue on to visit 18th century Ananuri Castle-a beautiful complex of different churches and watch-towers looking out over a water reservoir. After our visit of the site,we continue our adventurous drive to the small, mountainous   region of Georgia-Khevsureti. Encircled by the snow-capped  glaciers  of the Caucasus, hidden away from the surrounding  world, Khevsureti towered villages are like nowhere else in Europe and are places that feel so exotic, unique and magical, a place where ancient pagan traditions have survived, and where medieval fortress villages still stand guard over sacred altars in the valleys.

Today we visit Anatori- medieval communal tombs, where,in times of plague infected villagers would voluntarily enter and wait for death, then explore the fortified village of Mutso and finally take a gentle stroll through Shatili-an ethnographic museum-settlement of Khevsureti.

Overnight in Shatili.
