Acclimatization Day 2
Posted By Mr. Mohammed Al Thani | August 24, 2012

Today was another good weather day which I hope continues. Mount Elbrus is known for the sudden change of weather. We did not take the chair lift up today instead we started with a beautiful hike in the woods for about an hour before gradually going up. After 2 hrs it got really intense with up to 60% incline up a wall. What is really interesting is how the government here are taking serious steps to avoid avalanches wiping out the city.

Acclimatization Day 1
Posted By Mr. Mohammed Al Thani | August 23, 2012

We woke up after a good night sleep at 7am, to have a breakfast. I think they read my blog last night because they gave us aaaaaa lot of food. Then took the cable car up to 2,700m and started our first day of acclimatization hike up to 3,500m. It took us about 5 hours to reach it, the team paced up really well and made it with great spirit and attitude. We were blessed with amazing weather and beautiful views of mount Elbrus. We took a lot of pictures that i will share after the climb. You can also track us on spotmoe on my website. Read More >
