climbing tour
7 days

Many people dream of climbing the highest peaks. Kazbegi (5047m) is an amazing example for that! Legendary Caucasian five thousand meters is located on the border of Russia and Georgia. The ascent from the southern side (Georgia) is technically easier than from Russia. This is a classic route of people who are in love with mountains for more than 100 years.

Physically it is easier to climb Kazbegi than Elbrus. But technically to climb to the top of it is a little more difficult, because people should go with the ligaments. Therefore, in advance, you should be mentally prepared to the fact that climbing would require a maximum concentration of your effort and attention. In addition to climbing the Kazbegi you will get acquainted with a pretty and original Georgia. You will experience famous Georgian hospitality, local food and drink, have chat with friendly people, walking ancient streets in Tbilisi, as well as the many attractions of this proud country.

Join our next trip! Kazbegi is waiting for you!
