Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda

#1 of 9 in Parks in Mtskheta-Mtianeti Region
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.

  • Incredible place, the most powerful mountains, want to stand and enjoy, we were 2 times, the first time we came and stayed overnight in Stepantsmind, really wanted to see the mountains both at sunset and at dawn, the room we had on the central square, so we enjoyed the mountains on the one hand, and when we had dinner and breakfast in the cafe at the hotel, we watched the very mountain Kazbek and Gerget church, it was amazing, in the afternoon we got up to them by car closer and did not want to leave, the only thing was the wind, but I think it is always there. The second time we returned there in two days for a wedding photo shoot, it was incredibly cool, while we were driving the weather all the time changed, it was raining, then the sun, and while basking in the car there was a rainbow and we even had time to take a picture on its background, be sure to advise to visit❗️❗️❗️

  • Beautiful Mount Kazbek. In the sun, it is irresistible. We saw him this morning. Georgia is a very beautiful and delicious country.

  • Physically more challenging than expected but that's why even more rewarding and self-fullfilling. Made it up in 7h10min and down back to the hut in 3h40min. So lucky with the weather even if it was a bit clouded on the top
  • The most challenging and fulfilling track of Georgia
