New on 500px : Mountains of Kazbegi by roliketto by roliketto

This is most people’s destination on the Georgian Military Highway: a spectacularly located town just a few kilometres south of the Russian border, with the snowy peak of Mt Kazbek towering to the west, behind the famous hill-top silhouette of Tsminda Sameba Church. Kazbegi is the main town of Khevi, the region north of the Jvari Pass.

Now officially named Stepantsminda, but still known as Kazbegi, this is a sleepy mountain town at about 1750m altitude, with mainly Soviet-era buildings. It’s a favourite with backpackers for its relatively easy access from Tbilisi (with dramatic scenery along the way), its plentiful homestays and the walking in the area.
