Combine this visit with a visit to Vardzia Cave City. It is not accessible by public transportation, but I think this fortress deserves a stop.

Nice view from below but not necessary to climb as nothing inside. We stayed in a nice but simple guest house just 200 feet from the castle. Was great to be able to see it from below.
