The Great Caucasus Mountains stretched along the north border of Georgia represent the highest mountain range in Europe and the realm of many famous peaks.
The most famous peak in Georgia is Mt. Kazbegi (5047 m) or Mkinvartsveri (Ice top in Georgian) as the locals call it. Many legends are connected with this mountain and among them the myth of Prometheus who stole fire from God to give it to the mortals.
We offer you the best service for organizing this trip while you will be guided by the experience climbers and with them you will have a chance to get know to the mountains of Georgia and enjoy the superb beauty of nature.
