Highlights

  • Join a local certified guide, who has been guiding for 10+ years in the region.

Description

At 5,054 m (16,581 ft), Mount Kazbek is an emblematic dormant strato-volcano in the Caucasus Range that many climbers aspire to discover. On this 4-day ascent, we will have the chance to tackle the lovely Kazbek starting from Stepantsminda.

The itinerary I have planned includes an acclimatization hike, and also an extra day in case we encounter bad weather. Additionally, keep in mind that although climbing Kazbek is not an advanced mountaineering feat, you will require a good fitness level. Glacier climbing will be part of the fun. You can find a day-by-day itinerary below.

Of course, I will at all times be showing you the way and making sure you are safe. I have been guiding for over ten years in the region and know the mountain well.

If you decide to climb Mount Kazbek and would like someone to guide you, then let me be your choice on this unforgettable expedition! Contact me today and let’s start planning your adventure.

You can also join me on a slightly longer all-in Kazbek program if you would like to have me take care of the logistics.
