In the morning we will hike to Bethlehem hut. This day is quite simple. The trail leads from Saberts to the hut of Bethlehem and is only 3.5 kilometers long. However, we have to walk on the ice for the last 1.5 kilometers and we may need to use the lane. Bethlehem hut is located at 3650 meters above sea level and therefore we will have to climb 650 meters the next day.
Day 4: Acclimatization
The fourth day is the day of acclimatization. For acclimatization we go to Bethlehem Church, which is located at 3900 meters above sea level. The trail from the church continues to the right and climbs up to 4000 meters. After acclimatization, we will recall the rules of standing in a rope, the use of icebreakers and other mining equipment, and wait until we reach the top.
Day 5: Mount Kazbeg
We will start to climb the glacier at 2 o'clock in the morning, pass the noise, cracks and move to the saddle from where we are very close to the glacier. After climbing the glacier we will take many beautiful photos, enjoy the beautiful views and start accessing them. It will take an average of 8 hours to get there and 6 hours to get there. On this day we have to walk a total of 13 km to the top and back.
This day we have a backup day if the weather got worse the day before, or we just couldn’t climb the peak.
On this day we will go from Meteo to Kazbegi from where we will leave in the direction of Tbilisi / Kutaisi.
