Virtual Mt. Elbrus Climb


Virtual experience hosted by Takhir

What you'll do

Have you ever climbed a mountain virtually?!  Now you can!  Join Takhir, born and raised at the base of Mt. Elbrus, as he guides you virtually up Mt. Elbrus, one of the 7 Summits and Europe’s highest peak at 18,510 feet.  For mountaineers, it’s everything you’ll want, as you learn the South Route itinerary, the acclimatization schedule, and what technical details are a must to make it to the top of Elbrus.  This is so much more than a climb, though, as Takhir shares personal stories, family legacies, and the role Mt. Elbrus plays in Russian and Caucasus history.  There’s something for everyone in this virtual Mt. Elbrus climb!

Elbrus Climb with a different guide; thanks for your patience while it’s not available to experience.  Once this tour is ready, it will be on the site!

Meet your guide, Takhir

Hi!  My name is Takhir; I’m a mountain guide at Mt. Elbrus.  I was born and raised at the base of the mountain, and have summited Elbrus over 100 times.  I come from a family of mountaineers, dating back to my grandfather and my father, who worked for 20 years on Elbrus as a part of rescue services.  This mountain is close to my heart as my people, the Balkars, have lived here for many generations; join me as I guide to the top of Elbrus but more importantly, take you on a journey to my homeland!
