Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda
(4.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Amazing place.. specially during winter it's white n white everywhere.. food is just yum .. of course I am talking about the local food..gorgeous place to chill as well as hang around.. 
  • Must-see! But at the foot of the mountain I advise you to use the services of local drivers! The road to the church up very complicated!
