Mount Kazbek is a 5,047m peak located on the border between Russia and Georgia in the Caucasus Mountains. It is an attractive mountain, which you climb on this expedition via the most popular route from the south. This is a culturally interesting mountaineering trip with an exploratory feel to it.
Kazbek is one of the most beautiful peaks of the Caucasus and like Elbrus it is not technically difficult so it can be recommended as an ideal first five-tousander. The summit provides fantastic views of the Caucasian peaks stretching out to Elbrus 200kms away.
