Tetnuldi Ascent (4,858m) in Georgia, from Mestia


A Tetnuldi ascent is the perfect mountain climbing choice in Georgia for mountaineers with some technical experience under their belt and a love for uncrowded and unspoiled nature. Join a certified local guide on an exhilarating climb with steep ridges and shiny ice, as well as spectacular views, and feel the thrill of it from the top!



6 Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Explore Tetnuldi, queen of the Caucasus and enjoy an amazing climb.
  • Avoid the crowds and spend time in the gorgeous remote nature of Georgia.
  • Put your mountaineering skills to practice on an exciting ascent.


A Tetnuldi ascent is likely to stay among your favorite mountaineering memories forever. The Queen of the Caucasus, as Mount Tetnuldi is also known, is both regal and a lovely challenge for those that like remote mountain climbing in awe-inspiring locations.

The trailhead is located a 45-minute drive away from Mestia, a lovely town in Upper Svaneti. Although at 4,858m a Tetnuldi ascent is not so challenging in terms of altitude as the more popular Kazbek, this queen will definitely make you work for the summit. Ice-climbing and exposed ridges will be part of the climb, and the remote wilderness all to yourself will be part of the reward.

Of course, due to the technical requirements of a Tetnuldi ascent, some prior mountaineering is a must. A good fitness level is also necessary to climb this mountain. But, rest assured, I will be there to guide you every step of the way and make sure you are safe.

So, are you ready to summit the queen of the Caucasus? Then join me on this amazing adventure to the top of the beautiful Tetnuldi. I look forward to guiding you!
