There are no hotels, lifts and snow-cats on the north side of Elbrus. That’s why it takes a bit longer to reach the summit via the north side approach.
This is probably the most interesting way of climbing Mount Elbrus. You will enjoy both breathtaking views onto 5000ers of the main Caucasus range on the south side and mystic stone mushrooms, powerfull waterfalls and mineral springs on the north side.
Mount Elbrus itself and surroundings provide perfect conditions for ski touring and ski ascents from March till late June.
This is the most challenging way to climb Mt. Elbrus. We recommend this route only to experienced mountaineers because of its technical difficulty. We don’t arrange scheduled departures via the west approach, only private expeditions. Please request the quotation!
There are 3 treks that you can choose from. It is a trek from north side to south side, from south side to north side and full circle around Elbrus.

Climbing equipment costs much, besides it is heavy and takes a lot of space. That’s why hiring equipment is a good option.
Water & food
At the base camp, we use water from a mountain river to cook food and fill the thermoses. We boil it, so it is safe to drink.
On the north side, in Kislovodsk, we use Le Bristol hotel. On the south side, we use the Snezhny Bars hotel located in the town of Terskol.
At 3750 m we use new Ebrus 360 Mountain Hut built in July 2018. It can place 16-18 guests.
