Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda

#1 of 9 in Parks in Mtskheta-Mtianeti Region
Must see · 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 trip planner makes visiting Mt Kazbek and other Stepantsminda attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One of the best mountains view in Georgia specially in Kazbegi , it’s covered with snow all the time in a whole year. It’s very huge and scary at night. Good for mountains climbers to try this amazing experience there.
  • Superb view.... You need to rent a 4×4 to get on top of the mountain..
  • One of the major mountains of the Caucasus located on the border of Georgia's Kazbegi District. Drive to the mountains takes around two to three hours, and most cars dont go all the way near the mountains, as the ice gets very slippery. So probably yu'd have to take a 1m walk. But trust me, its worth it! There's an old Church on the top, with stunning views n lots of snow!
  • Nice place, everyone need to see
  • Wonderful views and lovely feelings. To be refreshed to forget all your problems to feel happiness this is the place where you should visite atleast once in your life time I have so many beautiful memories there and I loved the tour in Georgia special because of kazbegi and gudauri. I highly recommend this place. Its worthy to spend time in there.
