This half-day hike is perfect if you are tired of touristic sightseeing and want to immerse into nature for several refreshing hours. Within just few steps from Tbilisi downtown we will start our way up into amazing woods nearly unknown both to locals and travelers. Walking in these beautiful landscapes with breathtaking views of the city we'll explore the trails of Nightingale’s Plain, see the Turtle Lake and finish at Mtatsminda Natural Park. We will also have some relaxing stops to inhale deeper and taste Georgian organic tea with traditional local energy snacks. Absorbed into marvelous nature we’ll experience 30 minutes of silent walking meditation to dive into all five senses. At the end we’ll come to the best viewpoint of Tbilisi and taste famous hot donuts in a local café on the top of Mtatsminda mountain. Here our adventure comes to an end, but you'll be free to choose either you want to keep hiking downhill or take a funicular ride into Tbilisi Old Town.
Hello there! I am a co-founder of Hike Tbilisi, an organisation that promotes naturalistic excursions in Tbilisi and around. Climbing and walking in the nature are passions that make me experience mountains 7 days a week. Being madly in love with this territory in my free time I love to look for new paths and breathtaking views. The languages I speak are English and Russian, and for last 5 years I've guided travelers from all over the world. Why choose a hike with me? Because I can help you to discover how beautiful it is to be in the mountains in total safety, having fun and letting ourselves be fascinated by the colors and magic of the nature.
