Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda

(4.9/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Mount Kazbek is beautiful! It was at the end of February. On the Hill (Crown) snow. The most stunning views of Mount Kazbek from Hotels Rooms Hotel Kazbegi. If you go on the road to Tbilisi, kill two birds with one stone-look at Kazbek and pofotkaetes' near the Arch of friendship. To drive this Point of View it is impossible! But still write a landmark: from Kazbek on Tbilisi, from Tbilisi to the right on the left Mount Kazbek

  • The mountains, fresh air, around so beautiful that not describe in words. The old church, the monks are very strict. Climbed on cars, at the foot of Mount zakali like for 75 Lara back and forth. I advise you to visit there!
