6 Chilling on the Top

Chilling on the Top

Mount Elbrus is a dormant volcano located in the western Caucasus mountain range,  Russia, near the border of Georgia. Mount Elbrus is a dormant volcano located in the western Caucasus mountain range, Russia, near the border of Georgia.

It is the highest point of Russia and Europe. It has two peaks that are 5621 and 5642 meters (18440 and 18510 feet) high. It can be climbed via a ropeway. Let us have a look at the place described.

Before, people had to struggle risking their lifes climbing this high. Later a cableway was created allowing the lazy people get to the peak of the mountain just in a matter of some minutes holding their beer in a hand.

The cable way starts 2350 m (7709 feet) above the sea level.

Though the weather is +30 degrees Celsius (86F), it is very cold in the mountains.

So just a few minutes and a group of casually dressed chilling tourists find themselves on the top of the world (almost)…

Tourists need to get used to the local climate before they climb the mountains. Nobody does this anymore with a cable car.

Yes, somebody has brought the house door for some reason on the peak of the highest mountain of Europe.

For extra payment the snow cars can take tourists as high as 5000 meters (16400 feet) above the sea level. The higher you go the more beautiful views and cleaner places are seen.

Nice way to spend a weekend.

      Russians and Ukrainians REALLY have to take seriously their Tourist attractions. They have a lot, but haven’t invested yet.
