Kabardino-Balkaria: Transportation To Elbrus
June 8, 2015 16:28


Elbrus is the highest mountain in Russia. Its western peak has a height of 5642 m, eastern one - 5621 m. Elbrus is a cone of a dead volcano on a high pedestal of granite and schists. The Cheget Mountain is located close to Elbrus and has a height of 3650 m. Cheget offers beautiful views of the Baksanskoe Gorge, the village of Terskol, to Elbrus on one side and to Dongus-Orun, Kogutai and Nakra - on the other side.

Local Transport

Any gorge can be accessed from Nalchik by one of the regular buses connecting the city with the alpine villages. They run not so often, but every day and without interruption.

Tourists heading to the Elbrus region prefer a taxi, it is convenient and relatively inexpensive. In order to get to one of the resorts, it is better to call one of the many taxi services of Nalchik in advance and order a car. Buses also regularly go to the Elbrus region, the final stop is the village of Terskol.

If you are going to travel through the gorges and passes by car, you have to imagine the degree of passability of the territory. To be honest, it is rather poor. You can easily pass through the Baksanskoe Gorge by car. The rest of the gorges and passes can be overcome, if desired, but you will completely ruin the car – almost all roads are of natural soil, there are a lot of stones. An UAZ or an SUV is the best option.

You can also access Nalchik, Prokhladnyi, Mayskiy, Terek by railroad. The rest of the territory has only poorly developed railroad transport – the landscape is not suitable for this.
