The only major route that connects Kazbegi (Stepantsminda) with the rest of Georgia is a former military highway, ancient passage across the Caucasus, stretching from Tbilisi to Vladikavkaz [Russia]. It is one of the most scenic roads, steeped in trades, wars and legends. We invite you to explore the highlands of Kazbegi, ranging from the wide open spaces to unique ridges, weathered peaks and dramatic rocky gorges. Rising to the gorgeous summit of Mt. Kazbeg (5054 m), experiencing the wild, cool breath of the glacier is bound to leave anyone speechless.
