Please note that unlike other guiding companies, we always climb Elbrus’s higher West summit (5642m) and not the lower East one (5621m) – in order to avoid possible disaccord between our group members.
Elbrus North to South traverse is little different from an Elbrus climb from the North. And the little difference is in a bit heavier backpack and more comfortable accommodation during descent. This climbing route allows to see both sides of Mt. Elbrus along with ridges and snowy summits of the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range, in addition to the fields and meadows on Elbrus’s northern slopes.
When climbing Elbrus from the North, you wouldn’t see any hotels, highways or restaurants. Instead, you will be able to enjoy night views of some Caucasian towns and ancient moraines decorated with amazing lava sculptures. And towering over this incredible beauty is huge Mt. Elbrus.
Located in this area, at an elevation of 3000 m, is a vast plateau – a natural landing field. During WWII the Nazi were using it for landing of troops. Those climbers who choose to climb Elbrus from the South cannot see all this.
We offer you a true mountaineering experience when climbing Elbrus from the North, with sleeping in tents, with mountain brooks – all of that full of romantic appeal.
You will hear or see no sign of civilization on this route – only mountains and nature.
