  • In a country full of so many fortresses, monasteries, and other assorted ruins, not all of them can rate a 5. A stop in Khertvisi is worth it to see how ancient trade routes were protected. Really...

  • When travelling from Rabati Castle to Vardzia, this is a nice stop on the way. You can walk around the castle, but mind your step as there are no guard rails at all.

  • The place is beautiful from the outside and quick to see if you are passing by to get to Vardzia mines. But is not worthy to spend for the entrance (10l) as there is nothing inside worth to see. You walk in and out in 10 minutes or so.
  • Nice fortress but definitely doesn't worth the price. 10 gel per person is too much for a short walk around old walls. Not restored, nothing inside.
