Caucasus is very special mountain area of the planet because of its beautiful scenery. It always impresses us of its unique climate, culture and geography. Through ascending all green meadows turn into glaciers and all summits rise to the sky. As a summary Caucasus Mountains are like this.

As a team we have met with these mountains long time ago. Even though we were always aware of climbing and mountaineering potential and making personal expeditions to the area, waited for the service quality to make MONTIS style expeditions. Now it is time to reunion with impressive friend; Caucasus with you. This program is detailed with mule carriers of luggage to the base camp, food & beverage services, experienced guiding, no-cost technical equipment.

Mt. Kazbeg is rising in the beautiful fields of Georgia which is stand sentinel the Gergeti glacier and deep valleys with other summits around. Mt. Kazbek not only hosting Georgian legend Amirani -as the same as Prometheus in western mythology- also owns a lot stories in Caucasus culture.

We will climb to another summit Mt. Ortsveri (4360 m) for acclimatization to Mt. Kazbeg (5047 m). That means we will climb two summits in one expedition. Trekking and climbing on the glacier will give us a chance to improve our mountaineering skills that not possible to find in Turkey. Our experienced mountain leaders and local guides will accompany you and prepare you to the other high altitude mountains.

We advise this expedition to the ones who have already experienced ice axe & crampon and basic rope techniques. This expedition also provides experience to the climbers who would like to increase their skills in Turkish Mountains. While in progress before the expedition it is advisable to climb to 3000 -3700 m summits for better acclimatisation and exercise. To be good in shape will always make easier.
