Gergeti Trinity Church is a popular name for Holy Trinity Church near the village of Stepantsminda in Georgia. The church is situated on the right bank of the river Chkheri (the left tributary of the river Terek), at an elevation of 2170 meters (7120 feet), under Mount Kazbek. The iconic view of the church and Mount Kazbek is one of the best examples of the harmonic combination of architecture and the landscape, so typical for the architecture of Georgia. The church is a popular waypoint for trekkers in the area and can be reached by a steep 1.5-hour climb up the mountain.
