Take a private tour...its an amazing place and so much better if you have someone who knows their way around. Interesting history, spectacular scenery and go to Udabno if you can...guide can help with that for finding food... We ended up in Mamuka's Guesthouse... Wonderful food and our children remember Udabno more than anywhere else!!!

The day I went. Very bad traffic jam out of Tbilisi. End up can only have tow hours in David Gareja site. Also the tension with Azerbaijan, half of the complex not open for visit. With the limited time for the visit, after seeing two sites near the parking area. I desired not follow the trails but stay near the parking area, to enjoy the beautiful landscapes. And I not the only one to do so, we rather miss some of the building site but stay around the parking lots for the very nice views.

One van visit this interesting monastery with a real pleasure. You can either walk three grom Udabno ( about 3 hours) or by car. Nice restored and historical. Be aware to have your passport as the conflict between Georgia and Azerbeijan is still on.

Living in Georgia for 4 years I would never come up with the idea that one can find a desert here. The desert is not that desert with sandy beaches but the steppe. This place is still a place for conflict disputes between Georgia and Azerbaidzhan. The problem is that during the soviet time the border of both countries was laid exactly in the middle of David Garedja Monastery Complex. From atop of the monastery one can see Azerbaidzhan for over one hundred miles in different directions. Plus, the David Garedja Monastery is a sacred place for all Georgians. The place has religious significance and could be compared with Jerusalem for Christianity.

Due to recent border problem only one monastery can be visited. Interesting landscapes can be seen on the 2 hour + drive from Tbilisi. Only a short hike was possible at the destination.
