Caucasus Mountains

The Caucasus form a chain of high, alpine mountains separating the Republic of Georgia from that of Russia to the north. Just north of the main chain, several kilometres into Europe and into Russia, lies Europe's highest summit - Mount Elbrus, 5642m. The main chain itself contains many mountains over 5000m. and tens of summits higher than Mont Blanc. The Baksan Valley leads, in about 40 miles, from the northern foothills to the main chain itself.

Although it is the home to the highest mountains of the Europe, the area is relatively little known among western climbers, as the access was formerly difficult. There are seven peaks above 5000m. The Great Caucasus is traditionally divided into three regions - Western, Central and Eastern, with conventional borders coming through two highest peaks: Mt. Elbrus (5642m) to the west and Mt. Kazbek (5033m) to the east.

The Caucasus mountain system is the territory between Black, Azov and Caspian seas, within the limits of the Alpine folded area. It occupies over 500 thousand кm2 and divides into Northern Caucasus, the Big Caucasus and Transcaucasia. The central position is occupied by a range of the Big Caucasus.
