Mount Elbrus Circuit

Well known for decades by Russian mountain walkers, the route came in full view as a trekking gem only when in the early nineties foreign tourist saw it and compared with the famous classics. Shorter and easier than Himalayan circuits (around Annapurna, for instance), it is not much less scenic and wild, and, being comparable in scale with European ones (say Mont Blanc circuit), it is far above them in terms of seclusion and wilderness.
