Kazbek is situated in the East of the main Caucaus range. It is the dormant volcano, last explosion occurred in 650 B.C.

There are two routes leading to the summit of Kazbek: from the Russian and from the Georgian side. We organize climbing expeditions from the Georgian side since this route is easier to access and gives chance to climb even for the novices without previous mountaineering experience.  The only requirement to the participants is to be in the good shape. Your guide will teach you how to use an ice-axe, crampons and the rope.
