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. Our Stepantsminda trip planner makes visiting Mt Kazbek and other Stepantsminda attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Тяжеловато часа 2-3 хода от церкви, но вид один из самых красивых в вашей жизни. В августе не холодно и нужно очень много воды 2 ли на на человека минимум. more »It's hard to walk 2-3 hours from the church, but the view is one of the most beautiful in your life. August is not cold and you need a lot of water 2 whether per person minimum.
Physically more challenging than expected but that's why even more rewarding and self-fullfilling. Made it up in 7h10min and down back to the hut in 3h40min. So lucky with the weather even if it was a bit clouded on the top
