Many hotels are
poorly managed, run-down and offer poor services. Alpine camps offer
similar services but accommodation is in huts or tents with communal
washing and toilet facilities. For private individuals it is not
easy to contact the area from the outside and accommodation is best
found on arrival in the valley. Prices are negotiable, alpine camps
offer rooms for several dollars a night, hotels are more expensive.
The following are
recommended: Cheget and Wolfram hotels (in Terskol); Alpine Base
Jantugan in Adylsu. In Adyrsu: hotel New Jailik, Alpine Camp Ullutau.
Elbrus slopes: Garabashi Huts, Diesel Hut. Price is $10-15 per
night, often full in July and August.
