Dear friends! Many people are asking us whether this political crisis between Russia and Ukraine can effect situation in Elbrus region. We really don't think that any restrictions will be applied, and everyone will be able to enter Russia and to visit any part of it like it was before.
We want to give some explanations, just in case:
1. We will refund 100% of your deposits in case the political situation makes it impossible to access Mt. Elbrus and to climb it.
2. Please, consider the possibility of booking refundable flight tickets.
3. In case your local insurance companies refuse to insure your trip to Russia, we can issue you travel and mountaineering insurance policies provided by a Russian insurance company T.I.T. with coverage of 15000, 30000, 50000, 75000 $/EUR. Rescue measurements and the helicopter transportation are covered by this policy.
"There was a lot of uncertainly leading up to this climb of Elbrus. Back in February there were a couple terrorist incidents reported in the news. Three Russian skiers were killed and others injured when their van was stopped by armed men on the way to the Mt Elbrus ski area. An explosion on Elbrus brought down some gondola cars on the ski lift. The government responded by engaging and killing terrorists in a battle near the mountain. The mountain was closed for a few weeks and then reopened. Things then stayed quiet in the area. Just weeks before we were to leave for Elbrus the mountain was closed again. There had not been any new incidents to trigger this closing. Only the onset of summer.
Meanwhile we had our visas, paid for plane tickets and arranged and paid for tours of Moscow and St Petersburg. Cancelling the trip entirely was not a reasonable option for us. Even if we couldn’t go to the mountain we were going to Russia. But we did want to climb..." Read the the report
es war eine tolle Tour.
Vielen Dank an Dich und an Yuri!
