About Sights – Bethlemi Hut
Located at a height of 3,653 m on Mount Kazbegi (Georgian: ყაზბეგის მყინვარწვერი), Bethlemi Hut is the highest located building in Georgia.
Originally constructed of wood in 1933, it was designed as a shelter for climbers.
In 1941, a stone building replaced the wooden one and served as a climber’s shelter and meteorological station.
Annually, Bethlemi Hut hosts thousands of Georgian and foreign climbers on their way to the top of Mount Kazbegi.
In 1998 the shelter was re-named Bethlemi Hut.
The shelter is located on the Mkinvartsveri Summit Slope, Kazbegi District, Georgia. Coordinates: X 22.214.171.124; Y 47.25.382.01
