About Skitouring mount Kazbek (5054 M)
Situated in the Eastern Caucasus, Mount Kazbek is one of Georgian’s must-do climbs. Graded 2B Kazbek is accessible for most fit climbers and walkers. During the trip along the Military Road you will have the opportunity to view many historical sites of interest: small town Mtskheta – the ancient capital of Georgia (until the VI century), Svetithskoveli Church, the 6th-century Jvary Church, Ananury Church, Jvary Pass 2395m and the small town Stephantsminda, Sameba Church 2197 m.
Prior to reaching Mount Kazbek, we will shelter in the Kazbegi Hut, – the old meteorological station (3700 m) built in 1939, now used as a shelter. The building has a fully equipped kitchen for guests’ use (pots, cutlery, kitchen utensils, water bucket and cooker) and a fully stocked shop (beer, wine, water, chocolate, Coca-Cola etc.). In the evenings, there is electricity available for lights and re-charging electrical equipment (mobile phone, laptop etc.)
