The Caucasus Mountains
The Main Caucasian Ridge divides Europe from Asia and along its spine are found Europe's highest mountains, several over 5000m. The highest, Elbrus, 5642m, lies slightly north of the Main Ridge, entirely in Russia. Many of the valleys are seldom visited except for the occasional shepherd passing through with his flock in the summer. There are still many mountains where few routes have been recorded. On the other hand a few valleys are very popular on account of their accessibility.
The descriptions we have produced on this site are of necessity very limited, we have chosen the most popular and/or accessible mountains and described them in the mountain section. Valleys and trekking routes are described in the trekking section.
