Mount Kazbegi (Georgian: ყაზბეგი) is one of the highest (5047m) and most beautiful peaks of the Caucasus Mountains. The name in Georgian, Mkinvartsveri (Georgian: ყაზბეგი or მყინვარწვერი), translates to “glacier” or “Ice Mountain”.

It is the third highest mountain in Georgia (after Mount Shkhara and Janga) and the seventh highest peak in the Caucasus Mountains. The summit lies directly to the west of the town of Stepantsminda and is the most prominent geographic feature of the area.
