Choice of food in Terskol is comparatively poor but some basics are available: chocolate, fruit and vegetables (more expensive than in the towns). It is better to buy food in markets at Mineralnye Vody, Nalchik or Tyrnyauz. The market in Mineralnye Vody is situated by the railway station; in Nalchik, 10 min. walk from the "Alpinist" hotel; in Tyrnyauz in the town center.
