Mtskheta – Mtianeti region spans quite diverse terrains from the historic capital of Georgia, Mtskheta, up north to the mountain regions of Khevsureti in the Great Caucasus mountain range. Following the route of the original Georgian Military Highway northward up toward Russia, one can see a magnitude of regional highlights: the Jvari and Svetiskhoveli churches in Mtskheta at the confluence of Aragvi and Mtkvari Rivers, the Ananuri fortification and, after the road winding up through spectacular mountain scenery, the ski resort of Gudauri. Further up crossing over the Jvari (Cross) Pass on the Main Range of the Caucasian Mountains the road leads down to the village of Stepantsminda ( former Kazbegi), dominated by the majestic Mt Kazbegi  (5047m).
