Synopsis: In the north-west of the Greater Caucasus mountain ridge a huge snow giant stands out sharply with its height among other mountains. It is described in chronicles, depicted by artists and sung by poets, an ancient extinct volcano with a beautiful name «Elbrus». Its height is 5642 meters. Not for nothing is one of the names of Elbrus from the indigenous people – it’s «Mingi Tau», which means «mountain of a thousand mountains». Its slopes consist of volcanic rock, covered with huge glaciers, and the water flowing from them feed rivers: Kuban, Malku and Baksan. Let us together make a small but fascinating journey from the neighborhood to the top of this snow giant.
