Open to everyone
Climbing Kazbek (5054m), one of the most popular mountains in the Caucasus Mountains range, is a must for mountaineers visiting Georgia. Kazbek is the second-highest volcanic summit in the Caucasus and the third highest peak in the country.
The summit lies directly to the west of Stepantsminda and it is the most prominent geographic feature of the area. Moreover, Climbing Kazbek is suitable for anyone with sufficient training. You don’t have to be an experienced mountaineer or a climber to reach the summit of this amazing peak. Although a good fitness level is a must, and some prior experience is recommended.
Adventurers come every season from all around the world to reach the top of this iconic mountain in the Caucasus range. With its glacier and stunning alpine landscapes, Kazbek is bound to stun you on this 6-day guided ascent.
I have been on top of Kazbek more than 60 times. I have seen it in all conditions. I know this mountain very well and I promise you an unforgettable and safe expedition. During the expedition, we will have adequate acclimatization, I will teach you the alpine techniques required for the summit day and we’ll practise how to use the necessary technical equipment, like ice axe, crampons and ropes.
The number of people is not limited in this tour. One mountain guide can take max 3 people. The number of guides depends on the size of the group. If group consists of more than 3 people my colleague guides will be happy to join us!
Contact me if you are coming to Georgia and are thinking about climbing Kazbek, and I will be happy to guide you on a unique experience in the Caucasus Mountains!

I am Mikheil Nadiradze Professional Mountain Guide. I was born in 1991 and live in Tbilisi, Georgia. I started mountaineering from an early age and have not stopped since then. Since 2011, I was studying in ATS (Adventure Tourism School) and at the same time working as a mountain-Helliski-ski tour guide and ski teacher in Caucasus Mountains-Resorts. I was a member of the Georgian Climbing National Federation for many years and have a lot of achievements in competitions. After 2020 I'm fully certified IFMGA/GMGA mountain guide. Please read the programs down below, which I and my colleagues IFMGA/GMGA guides offer to you. for more information, please feel free to contact me. We can discuss your wishes and organize suitable tour options for you. I would be glad to be your guide and share great and unforgettable moments with you! I am always happy to help groups to climb summits in safe ways and in an enjoyable atmosphere.
We recommend Mikheil 100% as guide for this amazing adventure! He's very professional and has more than 10 years experience guiding people on Mt Kazbek. Before take off, he makes sure your equipment is well adjusted to the weather conditions and physical challenges you'll encounter. He checks in regularly during the hikes to see if you're okay and gives straightforward instructions, you simply have to listen! With all his care he got us safely to the summit and back down, we were more than okay. At first, Mikheil seemed to be a quiet guy but when you get to know him better you'll discover fast enough that he's super nice, really funny and if you're lucky, he might sing you a couple of songs during the hikes.. Madloba Mikheil for this crazy experience, we'll be back ;-)
Fantastic guide, fantastic trip
Great guy, very friendly and competent, we had great fun. Besides that, he's a photographer, so we had some other subject to talk about. Highly recommended!
I was ok
Friendly, professional, full of passion.

Misho is an experienced mountaineer, with both knowledges of uphill ski touring as downhill ski touring. His experience of the entire Caucasus mountain chain, is astonishing. Moreover he is a patient, funny and serious person.
My friends and I spent the most challenging, amazing days in Kazbek mountain. Misho was our guide and he was very professional, responsive and exceptionally well organized. His instructions were very clear. I look forward to booking another trip with Misho in the future.
Mikheil is competent and knowledgeable as a guide. He explained everything before climbing, organized everything perfectly, and helped during climbing. I think I could haven’t climbed to the top without his moral support.
Mikheil is a great guide, professional and attentive. We feel safe with him all along the trip. He gives good advice and knows very well the mountain. Plus, Mikheil is a really cool guy.

Misho is the best guide you can hope for. First, he knows the mountain, knows how to handle it and is attentive to his crew. In other words you feel safe, and despite the trip being demanding you never feel he pushes you out of your reach. Second, he’s a great person to spend time with, friendly fun and interesting, making the human part of this trip was at least as good as the adventurous one.
Miho is profesional guide.All way up and down He Was concentrate on safety of all Group.Thanks for all
Misho is really nice and understanding guide!
It was a great adventure to go there with Misho. Real professional and great companion (which is important when you spend several days with someone you don't know). Next time we go to Georgian mountains - only with Misho!
Mikheil was a great guide that took the physical condition of each participant into consideration. He is highly skilled and a fun person to be around. I can recommend a tour with him 100%
Great guide, proffesional, caring for sure will use his services again.
I couldn’t ask for a better guide for this particular trip. Since this was my first time climbing Kazbegi Mountain, Misho made sure it was an amazing and unforgettable experience! His calm and persistent attitude never let us have any doubt in his professionalism
Misha is professional and good fancy boy with perfect skiing experience and sense of humour
Misho is very knowledgeable, encouraging and always puts safety first. He also has great stories and it's very interesting to communicate with him. Besides Kazbegi trip, I also had similarly positive experiences with him on a number of ski touring trips that he guided. Highly recommended!
Safe,proffesional and in positive vibes
Misho is a very professional guide. Not only experienced and well prepared but also flexible. Can easily adjust to client's needs.
It was my first try of a 5000 Meter mountain. He was great with giving me great advice.
Mikheil is a friendly, caring and responsible guide. No problems in any way. We did not reach the summit, but did an honest attept - we had to turn due to diffucult conditions and a responsible evaluation by Mikheil. Thanks for å nice tour and company!
Mikheil is enthusiastic young and funny guy. He thinks a lot about the surrounding weather and terrain conditions. This is crucial for guiding different types of clients. We had very good time together, he took us also for local specialites and explained us a lot about Georgian culture.
Together with Misho, we reached the summit of Mt Kazbeg in September 2018. It was an amazing experience for all of us and we are looking forward to the next (Mt Elbrus!). PS: Thank you, Misho, for the summit video in which we looked like penguins, great souvenir
Great guide, very helpful, funny, he knows very good the mountains. Highly recommended!
Misho is a wonderful human. Talking about life and nice things during our trip. I liked a lot how he guided us through our journey, with attention and a good vision of what could happen…
Misho is an experienced and very nice guide. We had a great time together in Kazbegi. Despite the fact we didn`t achieve the summit I appreciate his decision to turn back due to the serious avalanche risk. This gives me an opportunity to get back again :) Highly recommended.
Misho is very friendly guy and very good skier. He has skills and experience in guiding people safe into high mountains. He knows the mountains in his region as his own pocket, and I will definitely go on tour with him again.
Nice and professional person
Not only know where to go and useful tips but can evaluate a risk. Great fun and adventure:)!!
Mikheil is super friendly, fun, caring and very supportive person. He is very experienced guide and pays attention to the smallest details. Being on a tour with him means a lot of fun, safety and pleasant experience of the mountain. He is always planning the trip very carefully and observes every detail in the surrounding environment and tour participants to evaluate the situation and make wise decisions. Safety is the first for him and I learned a lot during this expeditions. I’m very pleased and thankful, that I had this wonderful experiences!
Mikheil was the best! Experienced, well trained, and fun, he made out summit of Kazbegi an unforgettable experience. I would gladly do another tour with him as our guide!
