Besides the spectacular mountains, Truso valley is also interesting because of the peculiar travertine formations, mineral springs and a mineral lake, which are a sign of vulcanism in this region. We had spent the night at the beginning of the hike and started early, which allowed us to enjoy the valley all alone.
We had a beautiful day at the Truso valley. Starting early for sure was a good idea. It was still very cold at the beginning, but soon the sun worked its magic and we had a fantastic weather. On the way in we had the valley to ourselves. On the way out numerous groups of hikers were driven into the valley by little buses. Also we would have been able to drive further into the valley, but we preferred to walk instead.
Our next destination will be Stepanzminda with a little church in front of the impressive Kazbegi mountain – more on our next post!
