The drive from Tbilisi to David Gareji is so pretty, complete desert and countryside with nothing. Loved it! Then the monastery is u pon a hill, you can climb to see ubadno or the main gate with not a lot of walking, the views, the...More
An inspiring place. An exciting journey across the beautiful steppe to get there and upon reaching the monastery greeted by friendly monks. An awe inspiring landscape and a fascinating history. Beautiful if slightly forbidding buildings (straight out of Game of Thrones!) and I can understand...More
We went there by car from Sighnaghi. The closer to the David Gareja, the worse the road is, be prepared for some bumps.
Place itself seems like there's not much to do at first glance. It unfolds in the progress, and once you reach the...More
The monastery is about a couple of hours drive from Tibilisi. After we leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city, we pass through acres upon acres of farm land and a frequently changing landscape of hills. There are many breathtaking views and photo...More
David Gareja is such a impressive sight not only because of the monastery and the caves but also because of the really really impressive landscape and the fact that you're basically right on the boarder to Azerbaijan.

We went with the shuttle bus tour leaving from Tbilisi Pushkin Park (where the tourism information center is located) at 11 AM every day. The day trip is 25 GEL, takes about 2.5 hours to get there, another 2.5 hour hike, and another 2.5 hours...More

A difficult walk up a constant gradient, for many travellers. If you're under 30 and sporty it is 'easy' my friends said. Very hot with no trees or shade. No water available, except at the starting point. About a 30 minute drive from anything, but...More
The Larva monestary is fairly accessible but the best bit is the Udabno monestary up the hill. It is a very tough walk but worth it. Would not recommend to anybody who can't walk up the very steep hill.

I'm not sure its possible to visit from Azerbaijan. You'd need to go to Tbilisi first as there are no other roads or border checkpoints. From the nearest border crossing it would be a 3 hr drive each way to David Gareja via Tbilisi and you need at least 3 hrs there. Yes you'd need a double entry Azerbaijan visa and if required a Georgian visa.
