Elbrus climbing tours

Climb Elbrus

Elbrus the highest mountain in Europe

Part of the Baskan Valley, which stretches from the Caucasus Mountains to the glaciers and slopes of Elbrus, the Region of Elbrus is a majestic land. The rich and variegated landscape of the region consists of unique hill formations, high snowy peaks, coniferous and deciduous forests with abundant wildlife, imposing dormant volcanoes, medicinal springs and limpid rivers.
Mt. Elbrus, a two-peaked ice giant, crowns the panorama of Central Caucasus. Its two peaks have two volcano craters, which make the eastern peak a little lower than the western(5642 and 5621m).The eastern peak has an enormous crater 250m in diameter. The massif is covered by a gigantic ice-cap, which gives the mountain its name, translated from the Persian language to English as “Snow Mountain”.

Now officially recognised as the highest mountain in Europe, Elbrus is the subject of admiration among local inhabitants as well as an exciting destination for tourists, mountaineers, and downhill skiers. The local name of this peak is Mengi Tau, literally translated as The Mountain of Thousand Mountains.
