Kazbek is one of the most famous and iconic five-thousands in the Caucasus. Every mountaineer wants to climb this mount. Kazbek has been seen or heard about by any resident of the CIS. Its massif includes two peaks: the Eastern Kazbek 5033 m (the one we’re going to climb) and the Western Kazbek 5015 m. The mountain itself is an extinct stratovolcano. The glaciers of Kazbek is the reason for many glaciological expeditions and tourists to come to this region.
The views of the Caucasus are fascinating! And mount Kazbek's rugged peak dominates the skyline. No wonder famous artist Vereshchagin loved this region and depicted the views on his canvases time and again. Look at all this beauty with your own eyes. Our guides really love this mountain and invite you to share this love with them!Share:
