Mount Kazbek (5033m) - is the most eastern five thousand meters peak of the Caucasus, is located in the eastern part of the central Caucasus, on the border between Russia and Georgia.
The ascent is made by Georgia. This is one of the most beautiful and hospitable countries in Europe. Anyone who has ever been on this earth is full of desire to go back there again. Wild and unspoiled mountain nature, hospitable people, wines and excellent Georgian kitchen ... and of course the majestic Mount Kazbek.
The first ascent of Kazbek was committed in 1868 by D. Freshfield.
The first explorer, who climbed Mount Kazbek and fulfilled there the geological and meteorological research, was a Russian land-surveyor A.V. Pastyxov (1889). 60-year-old conductor from Ossetia Tsarahov Tepsariko reached the summit with him.
Kazbek - is truly a legendary peak. Prometheus gave fire to people and had been chained to the rocks here. His old enemy, the dragon, having heard about that, went to pay off a hero, but was turned to stone, and turned to Dragon Rocks, located at 4800m altitude.
Here at an altitude of 3800m, 80-foot rock wall in the cave, is an ancient monastery Betlemi (Bethlehem). An ancient legend is associated with the monastery, poetically described by a famous Georgian writer Ilia Chavchavadze in his poem "The Fall of the holy monk, sheltered astray shepherdess"
The main decoration of the Heavy (the Daryal Pass) and its symbol is a monastery of the Holy Trinity Sameba, where at one time was a Cross of St. Nino. The monastery is beautifully situated against the backdrop of Mount Kazbek, directly above the village of Kazbegi.
And at an altitude of about 3900m is a modern small church, established the monastery with the help of Georgian mountaineers.
Here is a meeting with Georgia. This is chacha, toast, Georgian songs and Caucasian hospitality.
