Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda
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.

Beautiful and interesting destination. High altitude nature at the proximity of a comfortable village, allows easy access to a very good modarate difficulty trail to the glacier at the bottom of the mountain. Spectacular views from the way. One must be prepared for the altitude, and for strong winds.
One of the best places to visit in Georgia 🇬🇪! The view, the services & friendly atmosphere will be definitely found here!!!
