The best time to climb Mount Kazbek

The best time to climb mount Kazbek is between  June to the middle of September. The best season is during these months. Frequent change of weather is not ruled out even at this time, but a successful climb is still possible during this period. Too many people climb to the top of Mt. Kazbek at this time.

 Mount Kazbek difficulty

 

The most common route to the summit is not very technically difficult and rated at a PD. The climb mostly involves glacier walking until you reach the crux then about 100 meters of easy ice climbing  (no steeper than 40 degrees) to the summit.

Mt. Kazbek is not highest mountain in Georgia, does not require special trainings and you do not need a good mountain experience. It’s just hiking. For the mountain climbers is very easy to climb to the top. Top of the mountain is steeper and  climb there is sometimes a problem, who has health problem. For the security we advice you to hire mountain guide, who will help you in every difficulties. I am sure that with our experienced mountain guides you will have a great Kazbek expedition.

 Mount Kazbek weather

 

As you know, the weather in the mountains is changing rapidly. Mount Kazbek is no exception. Kazbegi mountain weather  can change at any time. For this we can use the weather forecast websites, which to some extent may coincide with reality. From my 14 years of experience it does not often match and may change several times during the day. When the weather changes and visibility is less or it is difficult to understand the road in no way can be risked to begin the climb to Mt. Kazbek. In such weather, especially if we do not have a guide, it can be very dangerous for us. At such times you should definitely postpone climbing the glacier or wait for the weather to improve. It is necessary to have a GPS with us and monitor the weather forecast every minute to make sure how safe our climb to the glacier will be. By no means should we risk our lives. Because the danger is less and even many inexperienced people manage to climb. Of course, I will repeat that having a guide is very important, because no one knows when we may face difficulties and if we do not have a guide, it will cause a lot of problems. At this time we must definitely have very good quality proper equipment to help us in times of difficulty. We also need to know in advance all the necessary information, which is a necessary component to have a successful climb to the glacier. By no means do I want to convey that I recommend for the mother to be inactive. Our agency will help you to get all kinds of information to explain every detail of the route and you can also rent all the necessary climbing gear of the best brands with us.

That means you should expect any kind of weather conditions. Anything can happen in the mountains. Those who already climbed to Kazbek mountain or other ones, they know it is important to have all the necessary items, which will be useful during climbing. Let’s start with the fact that it is very important to have the best climbing equipment, Lack of proper mountain equipment can endanger our lives. Good brand equipment will add a sense of calm to even the most inexperienced person, who is the first time in the mountains.

Climbing equipment rental 

Every climbing gear what is needed for the climbing, you can see on our website. We have great brands of equipment. In case of advance reservation discount is possible.

It is essential to have the best equipment when you climb to Mt. kazbeg, without which it is simply unthinkable to climb a mountain safely. You should know in advance what equipment you need during the expedition, or contact us and we will be happy to provide you with all the necessary information about what you need during your expedition and what you should be informed about.
First of all it is necessary to have the equipment of the best brands. In our agency we have equipment of world leading brands such as: Petzl, Mammut, Salewa and many others. We never risk or endanger people’s lives to save money and bring poor quality equipment to the agency. Doing so will not hurt us, but endanger the lives of people we will never do.

When the season is at its peak, we have too many groups, at which time pre-booking is necessary as there may no longer be a sufficient amount of equipment. So I recommend you write to us in advance. In addition, we have been in relationships with many companies for 15 years and they know that we always have the best choice. They even call or write to us months in advance and I consider it my obligation to have the best choice for them always. Also keep in mind that for our groups who are planning an expedition from us, we always make the best discounts for you. So buying the whole package with us costs you much cheaper than anywhere else.

Climb mount Kazbek

Successful climbing

First of all I would like to tell you that when a person loves nests and adventures, they are more eager and it is not a big difficulty for them to make a decision to climb a mountain. They do not even need to think and hesitate. On the contrary, they are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the season and are completely immersed in preparing. Gather all the information in advance from websites, friends, forums and dream of a new adventure time coming soon. However, some do not even for the first time, but climb the donkey several times and climb the same mountain. This is a lot of adrenaline.
For example, I love to travel. Do not let this pandemic process be a bit complicated, but I can travel more throughout Georgia. I do not have much time for this because the company needs too much time. Mentally too much workload and it takes almost too much energy, but I do it with great pleasure because it is 14 years old and now I am starting 15 seasons, and I love my job so much, I often do not even feel tired. I drink coffee and keep working.
Thanks to all my clients for this, who give me great encouragement.
I have had many joys, many difficulties during these years. Sometimes I even meet a person who is unhappy, but I try to love everyone.

It is always better to climb mount Kazbek with a mountain guide, who knows every stones of the way. Especially when mount is new for you and before you did not climbed there. Such I explained above, Kazbek is not technically difficult, and you see crevasses, which are open, but without having a mountain guide it is always possible to have a problem, that you can not solve alone. When you have a mountain guide you are protected from any danger. When the weather changes and  the road is not visible at all. The weather can often change during the day. Reaching the top of Mount Kazbek is not always possible without an experienced guide.

Useful information’s about  climbing Mt. Kazbek

Certified mountain guides

You can  pre-search online and get the best advice through it about mount kazbek climb, but I think my 15 years of experience will be full of no less interesting information for you and I think if you take it into account, you will not be lost.
To tell you the truth, it is not easy for me to give you all the information in a way that is interesting for you and also useful. Maybe they even missed something, but I will try my best to make them very helpful to you.
The fact that I definitely consider having a mountain guide during your Kazbek expedition. This simplifies your expedition so much that you literally do not need much effort if you plan to go to the mountains with a guide and you are completely entrusted with it and the guide solves the main problems.
Their experience are so great, you will be delighted.  I certainly do not work with guides who do not know their job well and treat our company clients in a dishonest manner.  I gained a lot of experience over 15 years and got rid of a number of guides who noticed such irresponsibility. That’s why I left guides whom I blindly trust and trust in the lives of others.

Mountain Travel Agency MTA

  Before you climb mount Kazbek

You come to us and if you have a pre-planned expedition with us, you will all meet at the agency and in addition your certified mountain  guide who will be with you throughout the tour. He will definitely check your climbing equipment and talk to you about all the important details that you should definitely know in advance. Our guides speak very well the languages ​​you want, so it will be very easy for you to get in touch with them and get any advice.
I also recommend what food to take, how many days to spend in the mountains, what difficulties we may encounter. Do not be afraid of this, because the guide will ride you because any difficulties you may encounter while in the mountains, the guide will always help you, and also if you go without a guide, everything will be fine, only caution is required and all conditions are taken into account. You will be informed by us.
We will collect all the necessary equipment together, if you do not go with a guide, my colleagues will definitely teach you in the company how to use the equipment. You will also get all the extra information you need for an expedition: for example, how to set up a route, what to take, how to behave in bad weather or sight when you are short. Where to spend the night. Acclimatization how to go through and so on.
Early in the morning after breakfast we leave the guesthouse. It is better between 8-9 hours, because climbing the meteostation  takes about 7-8 hours, and on the way you have to rest for a while, because the road is tiring and uphill.
Everyone can walk to Meteo station, especially in summer and in good weather conditions. However, you must have warm clothes, food and water with you.
Provide everything the day before, as the morning shops are not open very early in the morning and this will cause an unforeseen problem. If you forgot something the day before, do not go unplanned and definitely solve these problems before leaving in the morning.
My advice is to drive to Sameba Trinity church as this will save you energy and time.

 

It is possible to rent a car with us and we will definitely offer you cheaper prices than you can see elsewhere. In the case of our groups we offer this as a present, you do not pay the amount if you plan the whole tour and car rental in this case is a gift from us along with other discounts.
Neither walking is a big problem to Sameba Trinity church. If you go by car, the maximum climbing time is 20 minutes, walking time is max. 1 hour, depending on the person’s physical abilities and the weight of the luggage.

In case of walking you go in the direction of Gergeti. First you have to cross the small bridge and from where you start the village of Gergeti, on the left side of the bridge, from where you can see the beautiful views of the Trinity Cathedral. The village is a bit of an uphill road to the end, not too difficult, just climb up and start the ascent from the end of the sweat. Here you will find several paths and decide which way you prefer to climb to the temple. One is the driveway and a bit longer, the other — shorter but more uphill. You may meet dogs on the road, but you should not be afraid of them. They are very used to people.

This road is about 1 hour and you will see the beautiful Sameba Trinity church, which was built in the 14th century and is one of the most beautiful in Georgia.
Around him you can relax a bit, take beautiful photos. Fill bottles with water. And follow the path up in the direction of the glacier. It takes 2 hours more about. When you cross the glacier, it is better if you use the crampons. Sometimes people do not use them because it seems it’s not so difficult, but just for safety I advice you to use them especially when it’s iced.

In about 3 hours you will see a very beautiful newly built building, it is Altihut, it is  3014 m. Where you can spend the night and also enjoy delicious meals. Many people can not afford to stay there because of the high prices. Especially those who travel on a small budget and in this case they stay outside in tents or continue directly on the road to Meteo station.

You can relax here for a while, have lunch, take beautiful photos, fill bottles with water and so continue on your way upstairs.
Especially if your rucksacks are too heavy and you have to wear them.
Of course with us it is possible to rent a horse and carry luggage you will no longer have to carry luggage, but most do not have the funds to do so and have to carry quite heavy luggage with their own hands, about 18-20 kg. At least. It’s certainly not a pleasant process, but in the mountains you need to take all the necessary items as well as food.

Along the way you will meet a number of groups, especially during peak season.

Mount Kazbek tour

Before you reach the meteorological station, on the way you will meet several small rivers that you have to cross. Of course this is not a big problem but you can get very wet and if you decide to spend the night inside the meteorological station, ask your colleagues there to help you dry your wet clothes.

Especially keep in mind that during the summer, when thousands of people go to the mountains, it is very difficult to book seats inside Meteo station. There have been cases when people ask us to book places, it becomes completely impossible to help them because we can not find even one free place at all.
So my advice is to write to us or call us in advance so we can help you. If the seats are not free, then you will have to stay outside in tents.
Mostly groups spend the night outside. For them it is more convenient and low-budget.
You can or should bring them or you can rent  in our company.
Sometimes in bad weather and especially when there is a strong wind, poor quality tents can not withstand it, so we always have very good rented tents and sleeping bags.

Acclimatization day

before the expedition to Mt. Kazbek

Mount Kazbek expedition

Early in the morning, after breakfast, accompanied by a mountain  guide, you start acclimatizing, which is necessary before the climb to Mount Kazbek, as you test your abilities, how ready you are to climb the kazbek  mountain. This is by no means a complicated process. If you have a guide, he will teach you how to use the equipment, how to tie the rope, how to adjust the belt, in what case and when to use the trowel and so on. Without a guide you will have to do these procedures yourself, however you can use the advice of friends, or ask others there and thus acclimatize.

  Glacier

As you know, the meteo station is about 3650 m. You are about 4000-4100. At altitude and back to the meteo station. It takes about 2-3 hours. Some do not return to Meteo and continue directly on the plateau, where they spend the night and from there cross the mountain. Many groups do this, however you should keep in mind that it is much colder there and you should be prepared for this in advance. Most of them even go back and make their way out of the mountain from there.

Before you go to the mountain, you should especially check the weather forecast. In the mountains you can not predict in advance what the weather will be like. To do this, we often use different sites where basically the 3 day rate is more or less accurate.

 

Climb Mt. Kazbek

From my 14 years of experience people who often climb to the mountains, they often ask for mountain guides, then those, who first time are going to climb the mount. Because they know how many dangers may encounter during the expedition. However part of people think that mount Kazbek climb price is very expensive and they can not pay. I think sometimes it is problem, especially for the students, but I think without mountain guide it’s always risk to climb to the summit.

Mount Kazbek expedition

Mt. Kazbek climb

 

If the weather forecast shows that the weather is good and it is possible to go up the mountain, we begin our ascent to Kazbek at around 2 a.m. Before that you should once again check the equipment to get ready to go mountaineering. Along with all the other necessary equipment it is essential to have a forehead flashlight and helmet as cracks and crevasses will definitely meet and you should definitely have these.

Also check all the necessary ones so that you do not miss anything. Also, bring only water and some food.
The climb to the mountain takes about 6 hours. You are on the mountain at around 8 am, if you are physically fit and have experience climbing the mountain, you may be able to do it in less time. If you are with a group, it also depends on their physical shape..
Before climbing the peak, you will meet a place called Plateau. From here the use of all equipment is essential.
The road is cracked, which in case of fresh snow is covered and not visible, so you have to be very careful. In summer because there are a lot of people, they follow the path and if you follow them back, the process of climbing the mountain becomes easier.
Before you climb the glacier, there is another place we call the Khmaura. There is a danger of falling stones sometimes, but our guides know this very well and wrestling with them with a rope will avoid many problems. I find it very necessary and important to use a helmet especially in such places.

How to organize Mt. kazbek expedition

At 8 o’clock in the morning you are already fulfilling a long dream and from the Mt. Kazbek overlooks the beautiful views below. You will take beautiful photos. This is a very enjoyable process.
Stop for about 30-40 minutes and start arriving down in the direction of Meteo station. You will need about as much time as you can climb, maybe a little less.

The summit lies directly to the west of the town of Stepantsminda. Mount Kazbek is a Russian name. The name in Georgian is Mqinvartsveri, which translates to “Glacier Peak”.

Mt. Elbrus (5642 m) is the highest and most prominent peak in Russia and Europe. It is situated in the western part of the Caucasus and is the highest peak of the Caucasian Mountains. It is situated in the Russian republic of Kabardino-Balkaria.

Mt. Kazbek and Elbrus are mountains, where lots of people dream to climb. Every season we have lots of individuals or groups who want to climb to the peak of the mountain. Our mountain guides with their experience and love the mountains picked up thousands of people on the summit in 14 years. Sometimes it happens that people without any experience risk climbing to the top without mountain guides and it’s a very big mistake. We always explain to them that maybe it will be a problem. Mount Kazbek Georgia is known that is not technically difficult, but an unknown mountain always makes problems, when people do not know, what to do in case of bad weather for example. Mount Kazbek climb difficulty does not mean, that climb is very easy there. It requires a big safety and always is better to hire a mountain guide.

 

Certified mountain guides

 

We offer both mountain climbs. Of course, it is possible if you choose one of them and want to climb each mountain separately, but you can also plan to climb both mountains in one tour at the same time, which will prolong the pleasure of being on the mountain and get more adrenaline.

If you arrive in the morning, you will meet lots of people and groups on the way, who, just like you, go to visit the temple, or have to continue the journey after visiting the temple on ice or at Meteo station, and plan to climb Mount Kazbek.

 

It can be visited at any time of the year. Especially lots of people visit during the summer. However, a completely different feeling is caused by his visit in winter in my opinion. It is amazing to watch her from below.
You do not need special training on the road, as it takes 2-3 hours to visit and return.
If it is a rainy and cold day, take a shower with you. It may be sunny weather at the time of departure and change after just a few minutes. You can not predict this in advance, because it is difficult to accurately predict the weather in the mountains.
It is better if you wear sticks. True, this is not a necessary condition, but you still have to climb and it is better to have them with you. From Gerget end there are several paths leading up to Sameba Trinity church. One of them is the driveway, where lots of cars you will encounter during peak season. It goes through the second forest and there is a shorter way, but there you will have to walk on a bigger hill and there is more fatigue. There is another short way and from here it is better in my opinion to climb.
If you go very early, for example around 6 o’clock in the morning, this is the time when the sun is just beginning to rise and the temple seems to be immersed in the sun and a whole other spectacle unfolds before your eyes. Going like this in the morning is not necessary at all, because as I mentioned above, you do not need much time to visit it and come back. This is in case you want to see the sunrise and the temple seen in totally different colors, however you can also meet the sunrise from the guesthouse and take some very nice photos. Trust me you will have very beautiful memories in life.

When you reach the last ascent, such a beauty unfolds before your eyes, you breathe a sigh of relief. The beautiful nature and wild beauty around you will amaze you.
Climbing Trinity is also possible by car and can be climbed in just 20 minutes, but walking up allows you to see more beautiful places.
Our agency offers car service almost every day to Trinity, as well as to visit all the most beautiful places in the region. To do this, you must visit our company or write to us in advance.

Hike to Sabertse

 

The trail starts from  Stepantsminda village. You cross the Tergi river, and then follow the road to Gergeti village. There are some routes to continue the way to The Gergeti Trinity Church. Maximum time to reach to the Church is not more than 1 an hour.

Hiking to Gergeti Glacier is a full day hike, max. 7-8 hours both ways. You have to take with you some snacks and water while you reach to Sabertse. It’s also possible to fill the water near the Sameba Trinity church and up to near Gergeti glacier.

The climb up to the glacier is a very good experience for everybody who likes mountains and visit beautiful sightseeing’s. It’s an easy and amazing adventure trip and does not require special effort. You can make it in one day. But it is also possible make it in 2 days. The first day you walk up to Sabertse, where is new hut called Altihut, it is new and very comfortable, overnight inside and get also very tasty meals and second day return back to Stepantsminda. If you do not have enough money you can overnight in tents.

Very important you have to take with you warm and waterproof clothes because sometimes in the morning you see it is a perfect weather, but very often it changes and in some hours you see that it gets stormy and rain and you are cold. I advice to take every important  things and clothes, especially when you go up and up to the direction of Meteo station.
