Itinerary (10 days)

Day 1. Meeting at Mineralnye Vody airport at 14:00. Our English-speaking guide will be awaiting you outside of the arrival hall at the airport. Bus ride (3,5 h.) to a mountain hotel in the Baksan valley near the foothills of Mt. Elbrus. There are twin and triple rooms in the hotel, with toilet and shower. Single accommodation may be available for additional cost in case there are vacant rooms in hotel or if you ordered that in advance. Overnight at the hotel (2300 m/7546 ft).

Day 2. Acclimatization hike to Terskol peak (3100 m/ 10170 ft), 3 hours up and 1 hour down. Overnight at hotel.

Day 3. Acclimatization hike to Mt. Cheget (3400 m), 4 hours up and 1,5 hour down. This is the last day before you leave the valley and after hike you can visit equipment store in order to hire something. Our guide will assist you to choose right equipment items.Overnight at the hotel.

Day 4. This is the day when you move to the mountain refuge at 3800 m. You can leave all not necessary stuff at hotel. It will not be necessary to carry your backpacks self because the group will reach the refuge using ski lifts. There will be only a short distance to walk from the cable cars last station to the hut. You will be kindly asked to help the guide to load the boxes with food onto the ski lifts and then to unload it. The cook will either ascend with you or already awaiting you at the hut preparing light lunch. After having tea or coffee with sandwiches and sweeties we put on all mountain equipment and go for acclimatization hike up to 4300 m/14107 ft. Overnight at the refuge.

Day 5. Hike up to the Pastuckhov rocks and probably higher (4800 m/ 15,748 ft), 6 hours up and 2 hours down.

Day 6. Day of relaxation. On this day you will have ice- and snow courses with your guide not far from the refuge. The guide will teach you how to put on the crampons and how to walk in it; he will show you techniques of self-arrest with an ice-axe and you will try to slide down the slope and then fix yourself on the snow using your ice-axe and the crampons. Don't worry when you've never tried it before. Overnight at the refuge.

Day 7. Summit day. We leave the refuge about 3 a.m. for the climb of Elbrus' west summit, 5642 m (18,510 ft). It is possible to hire a snow-cat (Ratrak) for a group. This vehicle carries climbers (12 people) up to Pastuckhov rocks and saves 4 hours and a lot of energy. Generally, for an average group, it takes about 9 hours to reach the top and 5 hours to come back to the hut.
Generally we stay at the refuge this night. If a group comes back from the top before 2 p.m. we can discuss the possibility to descend to the valley and have overnight at the mountain hotel. However this will require additional payment for hotel, because this night is paid for the huts.

Day 8. This is a reserve day in case of bad weather on the previous day. Overnight at the hut.

Day 9. One more reserve day in case of the bad weather or excursion.
When the group takes an attempt of reaching the summit on this day, it is necessary to descend to the valley same evening by all means, though it may be hard because the ski lifts stop working at 4 p.m. Overnight at hotel.

Day 10. Drive to Mineralnye Vody airport early in the morning to be in time for the flight which departs at 12:30. If you need to be at the airport earlier or your flight departs much later than 12:30, you can order an individual transfer.
