Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda

4.9
#3 of 15 in Nature in Georgia
Mountain Nature / Park
Located along the chain of the Caucasus, offers opportunities for serious hiking, either independently or with a guided tour. A dormant volcano, the mountain has a distinctive conical shape, rising 5,034 m (16,516 ft) above sea level, and includes several glaciers, which, if you're climing, make up part of the ascent. Walk though a flower-studded alpine meadow and scramble up glaciers and snowy ledges to arrive at the summit for views over Georgia and Russia. If you wish to climb, come prepared. The ascent and descent take approximately eight days and require mountain climbing equipment rated for glaciers. Several companies run specialized tours. Our Stepantsminda tour planner makes visiting Mt Kazbek and other Stepantsminda attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Childhood dream see Kazbek and Elbrus. Kazbek is majestic and beautiful, though sometimes hides behind the clouds. You need to get the weather. There is a route, you can make the climb. But how would the file, everything is not so simple. So I just beheld from the site where the church stands. Probably will come back, I hope.

  • You can access from Tbilisi both private car or taxi or with public transport, you will spend wonderful days in nature, will be forced to rent an SUV from kasbigi to climb up to the top where you'll have unmatched views and you'll find there's an antique Church 1300 years ago. Who visited Georgia and kasbigi and did not visit the area have lost a very important part of trip

  • Striking species that cannot pass through the camera. The power of ancient mountains. The grandeur of nature. The dignity of the entire Caucasus region. It all feels physically when you are near.
