9 Days

Description

Come with me on this 9-day climb to the top of the Mount Kazbek**, in Georgia.**

It will be an unforgettable trip in which you won’t only conquer the summit of the Kazbek. You will also discover an unknown but amazing country.

As you may know, Georgia is surrounded by the most impressive landscapes. To the north, you’ll find the main Caucasus Mountains. In the south and east, there is a sub-range of the main Caucasian chain. And as if it was not enough, the Black Sea watches in the west.

I am leading groups between 2 and 10 participants. As it is an easy and accessible mountain, you won’t need any prior technical knowledge.

The route will take us from Tbilisi to Stephansminda. We’ll spend the night at the Kazbek hut, an old meteorological station at 3700 meters of altitude, which is currently used as a mountain refuge. Besides that, it has electricity and water services as well as a nice bar that offers beer.

Please note that you need to sign up for this trip at least 90 days prior to the start of the expedition.

So, are you coming? Contact me now and book your place. I can guarantee it will be one of the best experiences of your life!
