ELBRUS - 2009 TREK

In August we served a 4-pax Dutch group that was organized by the company Edward Bekker Ski & Alpinisme. They arrived in the Baksan Valley on August 11 and after a short preparation in Terskol Village they did a 9-day hard enough trek around Mount Elbrus. During trekking the group visited many valleys surrounding Mt. Elbrus and they crossed seven passes of 2889 - 3669 m.

After trekking they summited Mt. Elbrus along the normal route from the South on August 24. During trekking and the ascent of Elbrus the group was guided by our guide Mr. Viktor Ershov.
