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.

  • The place is gorgeous, drove by car, right after the border stayed overnight at the hotel. We admired Kazbek. Very impressive, silence, grandeur of the mountain, snow-capped Kazbek, as in another dimension found themselves. Recommend!

  • Kazbek is beautiful and powerful. Captures the breath of this beauty. It's just impossible to tear his eyes away from him...

  • 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!!!
