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 trip planner makes visiting Mt Kazbek and other Stepantsminda attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

В Казбеги мы приехали ради этой достопримечательности и не пожалели. Современное посещение церкви ( подъем на автомобиле) стоит 15 лари - это быстрее, чище и сил не затрачиваешь. По нашей оценке цена ... more »In the Kazbegi we came for this sightseeing and have not regretted. Modern church attendance (rise of the car) is 15 lari is faster, cleaner and not zatrachivaesh. We estimate price greatly overstated. For comparison, we ate for two to 15 gel, in the same way from Tbilisi to stepantsminda (Kazbegi) with the deal (3 sights have a stopover on the way) costs 15 gel, and on a minibus along the same path (Kazbegi-Tblisi), but without stopping, worth 10 lari. Yes, and what a thrill to shake in the car, if you can see so much along the way. In General, we have overcome this way. Climb to the top we took 3:00 and descend slightly less than an hour. We do not for a second have donated: beautiful, how many made photos and memories. It is not difficult to make a common person, no gear not needed-just go along the trail and enjoy.
Great view , totally worth visiting the moutain. You need to take 4x4 from the base and normal cars cant reach the top. It will cost GEL 70
Good morning Tbilisi, View From Tbilisi State Academy of Art
Have climbed the summit one time.. Amazing beautiful mountain with fantastic view from the summit! Sometimes can be quite hard depending on ice condition and weather! Crampons, ice axe and rope needed!
Place is like a photoshop. Cold and beautiful view. Parachuting was not allowed due to winds directions. If you did not come to this place then you did not visit Georgia
Amazing...... With a breath taking view
