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.

Definitely worth a stop along the way to or from the Vardzia caves. Huge fortress with great over the surrounding valley.

Whilst there is not a great deal to see within the fortress, it is worth a brief visit. The views over the valley. the town and the Mtkvari River are exceptional.…

If you go to Vardzia, dont miss this place. A nice walk around the fortress, and nice view to the surrounding mountains. Only 30 mintues to stay but it worths it....
