Mount Elbrus, the Highest Mountain in Europe

Climbing Mount Elbrus in Russia is supposed to be very simple. Well, through the South route anyway. North of manchester route with this mountain is an entirely different challenge. A proper mountaineering experience unlike say Kilmanjaro. Climbing Elbrus involves a substantial amount of preparation from the physical, mental and logistical standpoint.

Apparently travelling to Russia can take a while. So you will want to make another plan to improvise. the best type of transportation being what modern man calls the aeroplane. Upon arrival inside the awesome town of Moscow the enjoyment and games begin. The first challenge is getting a taxi. Once you've done that, the work of explaining your destination and negotiating a price is next in your list. Not an easy task when no-one speaks English. The drive through to central Moscow takes about 1.5 hours. Manchester international is all about 50km away from central Moscow and the visitors a nightmare. Upon arrival inside the hotel, its a simple vodka, shower and... time for it to hit the streets of Moscow. , nor try and hit them as well hard because you can go the second best. There are some pretty cool restaurants where you stand confronted with one more challenge. You will be necessary to negotiate on your path around a menu in Russian and waiter who, you got it right, only speaks Russian. Might know about suggest you are doing is close your eyes, move your finger down and up recption menus and where ever your finger stops... order that. Oh, please remember the vodka. After dinner, just a little ramble up to the Red Square to see the Kremlin is certainly as a way. Please don't make an attempt to spray-paint your company name on the Kremlin walls. Somehow the Russian secret service doesn't agree to this sporting activity.


A young day I'm afraid. Well, I am not really afraid as days aren't anything to be fearful of. The Russian Mafia is a thing to get afraid about, but I'll leave that story for the next time. The flight to Mineralyne Vody leaves at 12H00 coming to 14H00. Upon arrival, we load up the gear to the bus and take the An hour drive-thru to a awesome town called Kislovodsk where we check into our hotel for the evening. Once checked in, we hit town for dinner then a vodka or 10. Discover during sex by 12H00, please return to the place. Breakfast is served. This isn't tennis. Were here to climb Elbrus remember. You receive your personal breakfast. After loading some?4 vehicles, we make 3 hour drive through to base camp that is nestled at the base of Elbrus. Why did you think it had been called bases camp? Since the camp is home to many dance clubs who use excess base of their music? or perhaps it for the reason that camp is home the Revlon's make up production? Nope. Sorry to are truly disappointing on this one. Base camp in such cases describes our base for that Elbrus climb. The drive into base camp is both spectacular and nerve racking. The roads have been carved in to the mountains leaving vertical drops of up to 200m. The tracks only accommodate one vehicle at a time. It can be pretty sure, that no-one interferes with the driving force at this point from the game. The united states side out here is so remote. The one reason there would be anybody on the roads ended up being climb Elbrus. Being early in the summer season, we encountered nobody. If we found its way to camp, we build the tents, of loaded our gear making it for that mess tent for first taste of mountain food-cabbage soup. Base camp of Elbrus is situated at 2400m.
