Mt Kazbek, Stepantsminda

#1 of 9 in Parks in Mtskheta-Mtianeti Region
Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
Located along the chain of the Caucasus, offers opportunities for serious hiking, either independently or with a guided tour. A dormant volcano, the mountain has a distinctive conical shape, rising 5,034 m (16,516 ft) above sea level, and includes several glaciers, which, if you're climing, make up part of the ascent. Walk though a flower-studded alpine meadow and scramble up glaciers and snowy ledges to arrive at the summit for views over Georgia and Russia. If you wish to climb, come prepared. The ascent and descent take approximately eight days and require mountain climbing equipment rated for glaciers. Several companies run specialized tours.

  • One of the best mountains view in Georgia specially in Kazbegi , it’s covered with snow all the time in a whole year. It’s very huge and scary at night. Good for mountains climbers to try this amazing experience there.
  • Superb view.... You need to rent a 4×4 to get on top of the mountain..
