The border getween Georgian and Russia is closed for other nations (other than Russians and local Abkhazians). SO forget it.

I travel to Georgia every month and stay there a few days.
In order to answer this question I try to learn it from my friends who travel often in Tbilisi.

When I was talking about the `border` I meant border between Georgia and Abkhazia.

I am not sure if the border in Kazbegi region is open or not.

If you want me to learn it I can learn it in a few days time.

Another option can be: you can ride to Azerbaijan and just pass to Daghestan (Russia) from Quba. You can loose only 7-8 hours. If you stop in Baku you stop only one more day...

@Samy: I'm also interested in your answer about the Russian/Georgian border.

We'll be there mid/end of may 2012, for a trip around the black sea, anti-clockwise. So we'll cross the border from Georgia to Russia.
Any news

I will be spending one night in Batumi and 2 nights in Tbilisi, any ideas will be great.

I come back to other questions, apart from GE-RUS border:

Don't worry about passes in that strech, at least until Vardzia, which right next to Akhalkalaki and that you should not miss (a whole city carved in the mountain).

In that area, the road from Akhalsikhe to Batumi will be bad after Skhvilisi until Khulo, the one crossing Adjara, the Muslim region in southern Georgia. Nothing very particular, apart from a few old stone bridges, but we loved it, the people were reeeeally nice (warning, I was told not to camp AT ALL in the area, b/c of jackals, wolves and bears). Near Akhalsikhe, although hard to find the gravel road, you can visit the Sapara monastery, very nice frescoes that were being restored.

To Borjomi you have a good road and nothing to worry, if I recall correctly, after the Adjara road for sure it looked good.

Thumbs up for Tbilisi, very charming city.

Enjoy it (greeeeeat food!),

Esteban

sorry no information about the borders.

I tried to make a telephone call to Georgia-Russia border at Georgia side.
2 different friends tried to find out if it is open or not. And they can't find the correct answer.

I think it is closed...

To try and get to the bottom of this I rang the British Embassy in Georgia { Tbilisi + 995 32 2274747 }
The Lady was very helpful .

She told me that anyone with a Valid UK passport wanting to enter Georgia from Turkey is permitted to enter Georgia , But you can NOT leave Georgia via the Georgian Russian boarder. This is closed.

Hope this is of Help.

we now need to re plan our route into Russia
