ARE THE MOUNTAINS CALLING….??

 

Make 2017 the year for your next mountain adventure and join us as we head to the mysterious land of the tsars, of contrasts, of vodka and shashlik kebabs, of ornate onion-domed cathedrals and flashy stretch-limousines, and most importantly, the jewel in the crown of the Caucasus range…Mt Elbrus!
 
This iconic, twin-peaked volcano’s Western summit rises 5 642m above sea level in the Caucasus mountain range which stretches east to west between the Black & Caspian Sea along Russian’s border with Georgia.
 
Being Europe’s highest peak, Mt. Elbrus is a drawcard for mountaineers the world over wishing to tick this peak off their 7-Summits bucket list and holds a strong attraction for most of us just aching for the excitement of our next mountainous pursuit and exploration of a country and culture unknown…
 
The glaciated slopes make for an enticing and challenging ascent that is often underestimated because volatile weather is the order of the day up there! Kilimanjaro’s Uhuru Peak rises over 250m higher, but the severe cold of Elbrus and the protection in the form of down jackets, double boots, crampons and ice axes demands much respect – a fact our previous group can attest to, being the only team to summit that day and in conditions worthy of any epic adventurer’s nightmares! Needless to say, it was an expedition that will long be etched in our memories…
