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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
