More Info

Located in the Caucasus mountain range in southern Russia, Mt. Elbrus (5,642m) is the highest mountain in Europe. The area around it is one of the most beautiful in the Caucasus, featuring several other 5,000-meter mountains in the range. A multi-day expedition that usually involves acclimatization hikes throughout the region, climbing to the top of Elbrus is a serious challenge that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The south route is the most popular among climbers because it is both technically easier and has a better infrastructure. The north route requires more advanced mountaineering skills and is more remote, which may be a point of interest for intrepid mountain climbers.

The guide was actually not Ivan Mishnikov but Denis who was a Junior guide with CetNeva. Overall the guide company is really good. Cook and the barrels where I stayed were excellent. Lisa, manager of CetNeva, were attentive and always present to help out. Guide was excellent in skills, just a little shy. Would recommend 100%. Thanks!
