Cave town journey was really amazing. Have to pay some amount in Georgian Lari to enter. Have to climb up the caves to see the real beauty of that place with river background. It very cold and windy but worth visiting.

We enjoyed our visit to Uplistsiche cave town, we went up the hill to the old church and a long the way up we have seen many old caves inside the hill, the view from up the hill is amazing where you can see the mountains, farms, cows, horses and the river.

The Uplistsiche Cave Town is an interesting place to visit especially if you are interested in ancient history. The house guides are very knowledgeable and few speak fair English. A visit requires some climbing up the steep hill and is not accessible to wheelchairs.

As the first visit of two similar experiences harking back to pre-historic Georgia, or whatever the area was called, thousands of years ago, Uplistsiche really blew our minds, with solid proof of cave habitation for an entire community attempting to survive in an apparently hostile environment. Painstakingly carved with primitive hand-tools out of the living karst rock, these extensive grottoes... More

This cave city dates back to 6,000 years ago. Come as part of day trip tour from Tbilisi and enjoy climbing and scampering around this complex. There are bathing, housing, cooking and assembly chambers. Christianity supplanted the pagan culture here, this a church has been built atop this complex.

Interesting troglodyte city in pleasant location near Gori. Exposed so take a sun hat and water. Worth climbing to see the church.

Walk in footsteps of the Silk Road. With this amazing cave town where you can see the ruin remains of churches, theatres, chemists and living quarters of the ancient inhabitants of the cave town. Even the escape tunnel and the old jail. But the aside of the history the views of the landscape are amazing.

This might not be a fun excursion in bad weather as there is much walking around among the rocks. It was very interesting to see how much work went into carving rooms, decorations and functional spaces from the rock. As mentioned there are also great views to be had of the surrounding countryside from this vantage point. I was with... More
