I’m enclosing some information for you to take a look at about climbing Mt Elbrus. Mt. Elbrus is the highest mountain in Europe, it is one of the 7 Summits and is situated in one of the most interesting places on the planet in the Caucasus Mountain Range.
We have been climbing in this region since 1995 and we never tire of the chance to go back each year. It has an amazing history and culture that you will get a chance to learn about as well as getting a chance to see a remote region in Russia. I’m including a short video below to give you a feeling of what it’s like to climb Mount Elbrus. Also there is further information on the climb, your fitness levels, altitude, and about the region in our free webinar, please check it out.
