The brief description of the tour

The Terskol Gorge is located between two ridges of Mount Elbrus: the southeast Terskol ridge and the east Tegenekli ridge. Above the upper part of the gorge the Terskol Glacier hangs falling down the slopes of Mount Elbrus and giving the beginning to the river Terskol.

The Terskol Gorge is located in the north from vil. Terskol. At first cross over the bridge the river Terskol lower the farmyards. Then go along the path on the left slope of the gorge above the river Terskol. Leaving the farmyards located on the other bank of the river descend the path on the bottom of the gorge and reach top the road 100 meters above the upper bridge.

The further route goes along the gorge bottom: at first along the road and then along the path. On the right of the motion direction is the slope of the Tegenekli Range, on the left is the Terskol river and behind it the slope of the Terskol Range of Mount Elbrus. The route directs to the farmyards’ glade. The farmyards’ glade is the place of rest. The further route goes to the upper reaches of the gorge to the left-bank moraine. It is the end of the route. The glacier end like the tongue hangs on the steep rocks like the sheep foreheads. It is possible the ice falling. Do not come up to these rocks near than 300 meters.

The descent way is the same as the ascent way.
