Climbing Tetnuldi (4,858m) in the Caucasus Mountains, 7-day Mountaineering expedition in Svaneti, Georgia


Join certified guide Ilia Berulava to climb the spectacular peak of Tetnuldi(4,858m) in the Caucasus Mountains in Svaneti, Georgia!



7 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Climb on steep, icy ridge.
  • Easy approach to base camp on the glacier.
  • Safe ascent to the peak.


I will take you to the gorgeous summit of Tetnuldi(4,858m) in the remote region of Upper Svaneti, Georgia for an unforgettable mountain experience!

Located in the central part of the Caucasus Mountains, Tetnuldi(4,858m) is a prominent peak in Georgia. The climb is extraordinary as the slopes of the mountain are generally glaciated above 3,000 meters.

The mount to the summit involves braving the crevassed glacier, ascending on a steep icy ridge. As we’ll reach the top, you’ll be stunned by the spectacular views of the surrounding peaks including Ushba, Elbrus, and the Bezengi Wall. And, you don’t even have to be a climbing expert to enjoy this climb, as long as you are fit!

We’ll embark on this remarkable journey from Mestia, a small town nestled in the beautiful valleys of the Caucasus. To avoid mountain sickness, I have planned the trip in a way that there is ample time for acclimatization.

We’ll be using crampons on our strenuous climb to the glacier(3700m), where our base camp is located. The approach is easy and I’ll ensure your safe ascent to the peak as one full day is dedicated to training and acclimatization. Typically, this climb is an adventure in itself, but for us, it is just the beginning!

Scaling on an icy ridge, we might witness sudden weather changes as we ascend towards the summit. The experience of reaching the top is both humbling and exalting!

The view is breathtaking, with the vision traveling far beyond the Caucasus into open skies and surrounding peaks. Later, we’ll descend to Mestia taking with us a bag full of unforgettable memories.

Join me on this adventurous week-long climb to the majestic peak of Mount Tetnuldi. I assure you, it is worth it! Request to book now.
