Elbrus Rescue team

The rescue post in Terskol town (tel. +7 86638 71489). All the climbers have to register at the rescue service office. The staff is helpful and friendly, some speak English. You have to come there and inform that you go to the particular mountain or a trekking route and set the latest date of return. If you do not come on the date of return they have to start to look for the registered person (group). We recommend getting to their office a registered especially if you are an individual climber. After the registration you will get a small paper with the registration number. The rescue team has not any own helicopter in the area. They have to call it from hundreds of kilometers away. Accordingly they use helicopter not often - generally when someone gets lost or dies.
