The first bright shots you will make on the shore Zhinvalsky reservoir . A huge water area stretches among the forested mountains at the confluence of two rivers – Belaya Aragvi and Chernaya Aragvi. This is a mountain reservoir with water, unusually turquoise, near the village of Zhinvali.

Eight kilometers from the dam is the Ananuri castle. The waters of Aragvi come to the very walls of this magnificent monument of the 17th century. The fortress walls are strengthened by two large and several small towers, from which a wonderful view opens.

As we climb the Cross Pass , we will pass the famous ski resort Gudauri . Along the serpentine serpentine to the highest point, the cross pass Ancient stone cross, set at an altitude of 2395 m in 1824, is equipped with an observation deck, from which it is convenient to photograph the Aragvi gorge and the beautiful panorama of the Greater Caucasus.

To the left of the road there is a calcareous agglomerate – a frozen stone waterfall with white-red divorces, and to the right – a mineral spring, where you can collect carbonated water with you.

This mineral spring flows from the top of the mountain, and over the centuries formed a thick layer of colored lime. From the side it seems that the mountain slope is painted in a bright orange color. From here begins the descent from the pass to the famous Daryal Gorge, which in ancient times was called the Gates of the Caucasus.
