Mount Kazbek is a stunning 5,054 m dormant stratovolcano in Georgia. It is a top mountain climbing spot in the Caucasus range with stunning glaciers and a unique orthodox hermitage at an altitude of 4000 m. Climbing this mountain involves glacier walking and perhaps ice-climbing, but it is not technically too difficult, however, you do need prior mountaineering experience and a good fitness level. Going with a certified guide is a definite recommendation, especially for those with less mountaineering experience.
Average year round temperatures at the foot of the mountain range from 14 degrees Celsius to the mid-20s and decrease the higher up you get.
Fly in to Tbilisi and either drive for approximately 3 hours, or take the local mashrutka to Stepandsminda.
Visit between the months of June and September for ideal mountain climbing conditions.
