Best time to visit the mount Kazbek

მყინვარწვერი .მწვერვალზე ასვლა ნებისმიერ სეზონზე არის შესაძლებელი თუმცა დაბალი ტემპერატურისა და  ზვავის საშიშროემის გამო არ არის რეკომენდებული  ზამთარსა და გაზაფხულზე ასვლა.

The best time to visit the mount Kazbek is from July to the end of September.

The peak is covered with permanent snow throughout the year. Here you will come across a lot of crevasses on the way, so it is not recommended to move without a mountaineering guide, as many people have fallen victim to the crevasses.

In September, the snow cover on the glacier reaches its minimum level and crevasses appear well, the weather is the most stable during this period, and that is why the majority of tourists choose to climb the glacier at the end of August and September.

Equipment and physical training

To climb the glacier, you will definitely need crampon, ice-axe, mountaineering belt, helmet, hiking shoes, warm clothes, waterproof and windproof clothes. After all, climbing a glacier requires physical preparation, but psychological readiness is a necessary factor.

რათქნაუბდა მყინვარწვერზე ასვლა მოითხოვს ფიზიკურ მომზადებას მაგრამ აუცილებელი ფაქტორია ფსიქოლოგიური მზაობა. თუ გამოცდილება არ გაქვთ მთაში სიარულის საკმაოდ რთულია როგორც ფიზიკურად ასევე ფსიქოლოგიურად.

ნუ ჩათვლით რომ მყინვარწვერზე ასვლა მარტივია. თუ პირველ ჯერზე არ გამოგივიდათ. არ დანებდეთ მთა შემდეგ ჯერზე აუცილებლად მიგიღებთ.
