Create an itinerary including Mt Kazbek
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.

  • Great view
  • It's a long trip from the town center but the view is breathtaking it was really worth the visit. It's very windy and the ground is slippery during the winter season so tread carefully.
