What to take


When you travel in the mountains of the Caucasus, you may need a lot of things from our list. Of course, it depends on the tour you take, that is why the list, given by us covers most of necessary things you may need.

You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. We highly recommend using a backpack or light sports bag, whichever you find easiest to carry, plus a small daypack. Luggage space on public transport is limited (if you travel by public transport as well).
