Itinerary of 10-days Mt. Elbrus climb from south


Itinerary of 8-days Mt. Elbrus climb from south (gradual acclimatization)

Day 1. Meeting at Mineralnye Vody airport from 10:00 (10 a.m.) to 14:00 (2 p.m.). Our representative will meet you in the airport arrival hall. Bus ride (3,0-3,5 hours, 200 km) to a mountain hotel in the Baksan valley near the foothills of Mt. Elbrus (2100 m / 6,890 ft). There are twin and triple rooms in the hotel, with toilet and shower. Single accommodation may be available for additional cost in case there are vacant rooms in hotel or if you ordered that in advance. On this day you can hire equipment which will be necessary during next day: trekking boots, telescopic poles, glasses, jacket, thermos, etc. Dinner with guide, overnight at the hotel.

Day 2.  Acclimatization hike up to cable car station Cheget-3 (3000 m, 9,840 ft) on Mt. Cheget or Terskol Peak (3150 m, 10,260 ft), depending on a physical condition of participants and weather (the decision is made by the guide in coordination with participants). This is the last day before you leave the valley and after hike you can visit equipment store in order to hire something. Your guide will assist you by choosing right equipment. Overnight at the hotel. 

Day 3. This is the day when you move to the mountain hotel Cheeper Azau, located at an altitude of 3000* meters (9,840* ft) near the cable car station Old Horizon (“Staryy Krugozor”). You can leave all not necessary stuff at hotel. It will not be necessary to carry your backpacks self because the group will reach the hotel using ski lifts. There will be only a short distance 30 m to walk from the cable cars to the hotel. 

* - an intermediate overnight stay at this altitude is very important because it ensures smooth acclimatization of the body, while using the abrupt change in the overnight height from 2200 m (Cheget glade) to 3800-4100 m (the height of all assault huts), which is common in many programs headache and insomnia, but also serious disorders in the body. 

After lunch, we will make an acclimatization climb to the the highest cable car station in Europe Gara-Bashi (3847 m / 12,620 ft) or to the Mir station (3455 m / 11,340 ft), depending on weather conditions and the physical condition of the group members, visiting the scenic Sarykaya-Su waterfall along the way. Overnight in the hotel Cheeper Azau.

Day 4. Today we go up the cable car to the Gara-Bashi station, located at an altitude of 3847 m / 12 560 ft, there we put on climbing equipment and make an acclimatization hike to the Pastukhov rocks (4800 m). Overnight in the hotel Chiper Azau.

Day 5. Holiday. Tomorrow is a difficult day, so today, after so many days of hard work, you can finally get some sleep. After a late breakfast, we collect everything we need to storm the summit and climb to the "Heart of Elbrus" shelter or the "Leaprus" eco-hotel, where we will have additional snow and ice activities (subject to satisfactory weather conditions), lunch, board games, dinner, briefing with a discussion of tomorrow's plans and an early lights out.

Day 6. Summit day. More than 90% of participants in climbing Elbrus from the south use a snowcat for an additional fee in summer. This vehicle transports climbers (maximum 12 people including 3 non-paying guides) to an altitude of 4700-5000 meters and saves 3-4 hours and a lot of energy. In the case of using a snowcat or snowmobiles, groups leave the hut around 03:00-04:00 (03:00-04:00). For most groups, climbing the western summit of Elbrus, 5,642 m (18,510 ft), takes 7-9 hours.

восхождение.jpg

At the request of the group members (in the amount of at least 3 people) it is possible to refuse to use the snowcat and, without any additional fee, make an attempt to climb with one or more guide assistants. Access to the route of participants on foot in this case is 3-4 hours earlier than the main group. At the same time, participants on foot should be aware that if one of the participants in this mini-group feels unwell or has other reasons to refuse to continue climbing by one of the participants, the remaining 1-2 participants are also obliged to descend to the hut. In the event of a forced descent to the hut before reaching the top of the main group, participants who are in good physical shape can make a second attempt to climb the same day when using a snowcat. If the number of people wishing to climb without using a snowcat is less than 3 people, it is necessary to use the services of an individual guide for an additional fee about 400 $. 

The summit is usually reached at 10:00-13:00 (10 a.m – 1 p.m), depending on the rate of climb of the group. From 14:00 (2 p.m.) the movement of all members of the group is carried out only down. Descent from the top to the hut takes 4-6 hours, after which you will have dinner and overnight.

Generally we stay at the hut this night. If all members of the group come back from the top before 15:00 (3 p.m.) we can discuss the possibility to descend and have overnight at the hotel Cheeper Azau or at a hotel on the Cheget Glade. However this will require additional payment for hotel accommodation and meals, because this night is paid for the hut.  

Day 7. This is a reserve day in case of bad weather on the previous day. When the group takes an attempt of reaching the summit on this day, it is necessary to descend to the valley same evening by all means, though it may be hard because the ski lifts stop working at 16:00 (4 p.m.). After the descent to the hotel, you will have a gala dinner and presentation of certificates on climbing Elbrus.

If the whole group went down to the hotel on the previous day, we can arrange for you an excursion to the most beautiful sights of Elbrus region: Lake Gizhgit, Chegem Waterfalls, the Thermal complexes Geduko or Aushiger, where you can take a dip in mineral water pools. Overnight at hotel. 

Day 8. Drive to Mineralnye Vody airport early in the morning at 06:30 - 07:00 to be in time for the flight which departs at 11:30 or some later. If you need to be at the airport earlier or your flight departs much later than 11:30, you can order an individual transfer. If you want to continue your vacation in Elbrus region, we can extend your stay at the hotel for an additional fee and provide you with a return transfer to the airport at no extra charge on any days of arrival and departure of our groups.

- single rooms accommodation at Standard rooms or double accommodation at Lux rooms at the hotel Snezhny Bars in Cheget or similar, on your choice (days 1,2,7),
