The brief description of the tour

The mountain Itkol forms the lateral spur of the Tegenekli Range. Its altitude is 3.420 meters. The Tegenekli Range is the east spur of Mount Elbrus. The line of the tour passes on the west slopes of Mount Itkol from vil. Terskol.

Crossing the river Terskol over the bridge, which is located lower than farmyards, the route goes northeast ups along the path. A good serpentine path goes on the right of the motion direction of the wide grassy gully. The path goes over the alpine grassland, goes into the forest and out it to its upper line. Then the steep part of the ascent begins which goes to the wide grassy shoulder where the path is ended. The altitude of this place is 250 meters. Here is the end of the route.

Ought to go east along the shoulder 150-200 meters for the view of panorama and come back to the path location.

It’s not wishing to se to the grassy shoulder while it’s raining or after it as the steep path becomes slippery and dangerous.

The descent way is the same as the ascent way.
