Great emka 2014-02-01 15:01

Hi Paul, Another photo of a monastery that I haven't heard about. As it is not so far from Akhaltsikhe so you went there probably with a taxi . Interesting how the different building and walls lie along the diagonal. Fantastic forest with pines and other trees in different colours. Beautiful composition, nice natural colours and stunning sharpness.

Default To emka: by taxi

Hi Malgo,

From Akhaltsikhe we made a day trip to the Sapara Monastery, to the castle of Khertvisi and to the cave town of Vardzia.
All three places are quite remote.

We discussed the price with a taxi driver in the center of Alkhaltsikhe.
They do know what tourists would like to see.

You can also make the taxi stop along the way to visit more places.
There are more caves along the road. Sometimes you don't notice them in that mountainous landscape but the taxi driver can point them.

PS: Sapara is not really much visited. It's also not so beautiful as for instance Gelati near Kutaisi. (my personal opinion)

Best regards from Belgium,
