The best season for climbing of Kazbek is between late June and late September. Although, mountain weather is variable. The temperature can change from +20°C (afternoon) to 20°C below zero at night. Storms and snowfall could be encountered at any time. Warm and wind-proof clothes are necessary for the ascent including both inner and outer waterproof gloves/mittens, duvet jacket, fleece and thermals. Double boots are useful on Kazbek but would not be comfortable for the first walking day. We would also like you to take a lightweight harness with 2 screw gate karabiner. If you are already a hiker or backpacker you will probably have much of the clothing and equipment required. A three season sleeping bag and a 60 liter rucksack should be adequate. It will be possible to leave some luggage at the Hotel in Tbilisi during the trip. A detailed equipment list will be sent with confirmation of booking.
