Mount Kazbek (5047m) is one of the most beautiful peaks of the Caucasus and like Elbrus it is not technically difficult but at over five thousand metres it requires a good amount of energy! It forms the border between Russia and Georgia. From the small town of Kazbegi we climb to the Betlemi mountain refuge on the southern slopes of Mount Kazbek. Given good weather we will acclimatise on the nearby Mount Ortsveri (4365m) and then make our ascent of Kazbek in the early hours whilst it is cool and the snow conditions are good. The summit provides fantastic views of the Caucasian peaks stretching out to Elbrus 200kms away.

It is vitally important that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Adventure Peaks. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure Peaks itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.
Adventure Peaks do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is a requirement of our booking conditions that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday. Cover must include emergency medical, helicopter evacuation, repatriation and rescue expenses.
It is strongly recommended that suitable cancellation insurance is purchased at the time of booking as all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
