is a sleeping volcano with the highest peak in Europe capped in ice. The slopes are covered with 22 glaciers. Take a series of cable cars and chairlifts on the south route up to 4,045 m (13,270 ft), and then follow the flags toward the summit at 5,642 m (18,510 ft). Along the way, rest at one of the barrels or diesel huts. From the top you'll enjoy views of the entire Caucasus. The north route, which is more challenging, features a rescue hut in the saddle at 5,400 m (17,717 ft). For Mt.
