Climbing Elbrus, the highest peak in Russia: Yes, we can!
special to RBTH
In addition to the clean mountain air and spectacular views, the mountains are worth going for their views on a starry sky.
Climbing Mount Elbrus is a difficult task, but people take the chance anyway. But it's definitely worth taking risks to see these beautiful landscapes. The most courageous travelers climb Russia's highest even though snowfalls here are heavy, the wind is strong, and overall conditions are rough.
