Mount Tetnuldi, Georgia, 7 Day Guided Climb


Join certified guide Vadym on a week long ascent of the gorgeous Mount Tetnuldi in the Caucasus mountain range in Georgia.



7 Days

Jun, Jul




* Reach the summit of Mount Tetnuldi in Georgia.

* Contemplate incredible sights of the Caucasus from the top.


For a whole week, I would like to take you to the summit of the beautiful Mount Tetnuldi (4,858m).

Located in the Caucasus mountain range in the wonderful country of Georgia, Mount Tetnuldi is a spectacular peak. And when climbing a mountain as large as Tetnuldi, a lot of preparation has to be done. As a result, the first few days of this trip will revolve around proper acclimatization. This will ensure that you do not experience any altitude sickness during the ascent. Hence making your summit experience an enjoyable one.

In order to achieve proper acclimatization, we will make our way to the capital of the Svaneti region, Mestia. From there, we will trek to the Chizhdi pass (3,100m) and climb Mount Laila (4,005m). This mini expedition will take two days. Typically, this would make a great trip on its own, but on this adventure, it’s just the beginning!

After you’ve been properly acclimatized, we will begin our ascent of Mount Tetnuldi. The climb will involve a ski lift, some trekking, and ice climbing practice on a glacier. And finally, when we reach the summit, you will get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. You will be able to look out, far beyond at the Caucasus, before we descend back to Mestia.

There will be some challenges during this ascent, which is often the case when scaling mountains of Tetnuldi’s magnitude. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition and should have some prior mountaineering experience.

If you are looking for a memorable climbing adventure on a great peak, Mount Tetnuldi is for you. So send me a request, and enjoy this week-long climbing adventure.

I also lead an ascent to Mount Ushba in Georgia. Check it out!

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
