A grand name for a grand road, the Georgian Military Highway snakes its way through the mountains from Tbilisi over the Djvaris Pass and down to Kazbegi. The trip by bus takes around 3 hours and costs 8 Lari, leaving Tbilisi's chaotic Didube Station about three times a day, with the last one leaving around 4pm. Getting back to Tbilisi is fairly straighforward...go to the square and let people know you are going to Tbilisi ("me mivdivar Tbilis-shi" is a handy phrase), someone will put you in a taxi. Taxis, if shared, are only slightly more expensive than marshrutkas (minibuses), although be prepared for a white-knuckle ride, especially on the steep section.
Sights en route include (from Tbilisi) Ananuri church, Zhinvali Dam, Pasanauri, the steep climb to the ski resort of Gudauri, and the Djvari Pass.

The only public service to Kazbegi is the mini bus.
There are daily connections from to Tbilisi.
The journey take about 3-4 hours it is a great ride
thorugh the georgian military highway.
The roads are in not vey good condition everywhere.
You will drive through dark tunnels and high passes.
Don't be afraid the drivers are very experienced.
The first bus from Tbilis starts at about 8:00 from Didube
The last from Kazbegi starts at about 16:00 (sept 2003) from the main square
But it is better to ask ahead perhabs the times have changed.
We had a lack in the tire near Tbilisi.
Good that this had not been at a mountain pass.
The driver changed the tire in two minutes!
So a daytrip is possible
The journey costs about 5 $ One way.
