It s a fantastic, rewarding challenge - all you need is an adventurous team spirit, good fitness and two weeks out of the office. We begin our challenge from Kislovodsk, in the heart of the lower Caucasus.

From Base Camp we climb through the rocky moraine of the Mikelchiran Glacier to our next camp at 3,600 m far above the grasslands, with stunning views across the glaciers and the lower Caucasus range. Together we make the climb to Lenz Rocks, crossing several crevasses, and prepare for our bid to reach the summit of. The ascent to the top is tough but exhilarating, beginning with a glacier climb to the saddle between the two summits at 5,416 m. We work as a team to climb up the next steep section to the ridge and, after a final short push, we reach the summit at 6,642 m. We are rewarded with a breathtaking view over the Caucasus from the highest point in Europe. Back in the spa town of Kislovodsk we celebrate our ascent to the summit of with a traditional Russian sauna, dinner and fine chilled vodka with our new friends. at a glance Activity: Trekking - Altitude Location:, Russia Duration: 12 days / 8-9 days trekking Difficulty: Tough Distance: 40 km Group size: trip highlights Take on one of the seven summits of the world Trek through the heart of the lower Caucasus Climb through the Mikelchiran Glacier Use crampons and practice ice axe techniques Stand upon the magnificent Lenz Rocks Peer from the highest mountain in Europe Indulge in a classic Russian sauna Action Challenge have been leading inspirational team adventures across the world for individuals, private groups, charities and corporate clients since Our trips enable people to experience the world s most exhilarating locations, often in aid of charity.
