Truso Valley

Truso Valley 
— the valley of Terek (Tergi) River from it's source to Almasiani village. The valley is almost entirely abandoned by local population.

In the valley, there are number of abandoned villages with old towers and ruins of other fortification buildings.

It can be stated that some of the fortified villages of Truso Valley are almost of the same size and architectural significance as  as those of Khevsureti and Tusheti. Village of Mna (in Mna Valley), Ketrisi, Abano, Zakagori, Karatkhau, Burmasigi, Tepi and Resi are among them. Resi village is the highest (2400 m / 7874 ft) settlement in Georgia, but as it is abandoned nowadays, it is not mentioned among Georgia's and Europe's highest settlements any more.

Truso Travertines, which are formed by mineral-enriched springs of the valley, is an interesting sightseeing as well.
