Great experience of our guides, great knowledge of local birds and places will ensure your satisfaction from our tours.
Our weeklong trip will be held in the scenic mountain region of Kazbegi (Stephantsminda).
Kazbegi features the beautiful peak of Mkinvartsveri (Kazbegi) and the landscape varies from high glacial mountain peaks to deep gorges and canyons cut by glacial waters banked with sub-alpine vegetation. As you drive through the high mountain peaks, Red-billed and Alpine Choughs call overhead and communities of Snowdrops, the alpine wildflower, are sprinkled in the meadows.
Local people herd their sheep and cattle along the mountain road and a spring of natural mineral water greets travelers alongside the bright red sulfur flats that border a section of the alpine pass.
