Yes. We provide all necessary documents.
How do I pay?
You transfer a prepayment of €150 via a bank in advance. You can pay the rest in cash upon arrival in Pyatigorsk.
Insured event - what are the guide's actions?
If an insured event occurs (injury, falling own, acute mountain sickness attack), the lead guide stops the group, evaluates the situation and makes a decision on emergency evacuation or planned descent accompanied by an assistant guide.
After making the decision the lead guide
- calls the insurance company and reports the surname, name, date of birth and country of residence of the injured participant
- calls the Rescue Service and follows their instructions
- If necessary, immobilizes the injured participant on the slope or starts an immediate descent accompanied by a second assistant guide

As a rule, the remaining group continues the climb
Hygiene on Mount Elbrus. Will there be a shower and what about the toilet?
You can take a hot shower in Terskol at the camping site or in the hotel.
There is no shower at the high camp at 3900m. Outhouse style toilet. Its cleanliness depends on the tidiness of each participant. Once a day an employee of the mountain refuge cleans the toilet.
How much will the backpack weigh and what will I carry?
For the South route you will need a climbing backpack (35-45 litres). As a rule, the backpack contains: down jacket, gloves, a flashlight, camera, snack and a thermos of tea. The weight of this backpack does not exceed 6-8 kg.
A ski lift is used to get to the high camp. So it is better to pack your other personal belongings (gear, sleeping bag, bed linens) in a duffel bag. A large backpack (80-100 litres) will also do.
Food and cooking equipment are also stowed separately - usually they are carried by several people.

Are there guarantees for a successful climb?
Let's be honest: There is no 100% success guarantee. But certainly there is a high or low probability of a successful climb. The probability depends on:
- the expected weather (the most informative forecast is on mountain-forecast.com )
and
- the physical condition of the participants (if they feel okay after the acclimatization at 5000 meters at "Kosaya polka", the chance of reaching the top rise sharply!)

All the rest is secondary:-)

Clothing and Footwear
To open the list

2
Casual clothing
Lightweight microfibre trousers, fleece or Climashield coat. Your clothes should be comfortable and allow you to move freely.

4

5
Footwear

Down mittens are essential during the summit push and at high altitudes. Gaiters are worn over hiking boots and they protect the lower part of your trousers from dirt, dust, water and wind.
