Sakhiznari Rock

Sakhiznari Rock

Natural monument - Sakhiznari Rock is a complex of erosional columns with a fascinating geological structure formed due to heavy rainfall on Mount Khabarjina. The mountain is a flat rocky outcrop of a volcanic eruption on the slopes of which Deka (Rhododendron caucasicum) flourishes. Locals call this place "Sakhiznari Rocks" because in past centuries, during the war, when the enemy approached, the villagers used to hide here and take refuge in the rocks.

Location: Kazbegi municipality, gorge river Tergi, near the village Sioni, 3136 meters above sea level.
