It is recommended to start the route from Trinity Church - reach it with a taxi that costs 40 Larry and from there start to walk the route. It's long and not easy route, most of it up. Halfway there is a cabin with toilets. As you descend the road back, the path is full of stones and steep. A path of difficult difficulty. Beautifull view in the way. The glacier not so imppresive.
Dangerous, but I was lucky having a a certified glacier guide. We roped up and made a loop back to base camp from summiting Kazbek. We did this to avoid the rockfall on the normal route back. I slipped a leg down a covered crevice, safety of roping up is a must! But it was beautiful and I loved the walk.
