About the tour
The tour will happen even in case of single client!
This climbing schedule with combination of two mountains is always time-saving. It means that you need to acclimatize only once – when climbing Kazbek with its challenging landscape and without any chair lifts or other means of transportation. This also means that climbing Elbrus will take only one day and less effort after climbing Kazbek.
