Description

Mount Kazbek is the most famous mountain in Georgia. On this 6-day Kazbek summit tour, I will show you the way to the top and you will have the chance to find out why this Caucasus stunner has such an excellent reputation!

Although anyone can climb to the 5052-meter-high Kazbek summit, going with a certified guide is a must. The classic route is not technically difficult, but it is long and dangerous for those with no mountaineering experience. On this 6-day climb, you will be able to achieve this summit safely and enjoy a unique experience in the Caucasus.

The itinerary we will follow starts and ends in Stepantsminda and contemplates an extra day in case of bad weather. You can find a detailed itinerary below. There will be 1 guide every 1-3 participants, if your party is larger, I will call another guide to join us.

If climbing Kazbek is on your Georgia to-do list, then contact me and we can start planning this amazing adventure together! I look forward to guiding you!
