Mountainous Kazbegi area of Georgia has been named among "100 trips everyone should take in their lifetime”, a list of destinations based on recommendations from the world’s top travelers.
The list was compiled by British online newspaper The Independent.
The newspaper said that no matter how many countries you have been to, there's always somewhere new to discover. But with so many cultures, countries, and landscapes to explore, it is hard to prioritise one dream destination over another.
They asked 20 top travel bloggers and writers/editors from the likes of Lonely Planet, Suitcase, and Airbnb for the top five destinations they've ever visited — or the ones that are at the top of their bucket list. Based on their advice, a list of "must-see places across the globe that everyone should visit in their lifetime” was compiled.
Camp in the Caucasus Mountains in Kazbegi, Georgia was recommended by India Dowley, Digital Editor of Suitcase Magazine.
"This small town in the Caucasus Mountains is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been”, Dowley said.
"Tbilisi locals go in the summer months to camp among wild horses on the lush carpet of the mountains, with vertiginous views of waterfalls and towering peaks”.
Other places that made it into the list included locations in Scotland, Norway, Finland, Turkey, the United States, Japan, Cambodia, Malta and more.
