Ran successfully,  Due To Resume after 2015: Due to construction activities winter Olympics and now the political situation in the Ukraine there has been some issues with access to the mountains from the Sochi side as well as obtaining adequate insurance cover. At this time it is still unclear whether these issues will be resolved by the spring. Due to this uncertainty I have therefore decided to suspend this trek for 2014/15.  Sorry to those of you who were thinking of joining the trip in the coming year, don’t worry the mountains will still be there for a while yet.

Hello, everyone! I live in Moscow but come from Stavropol - Southern part of Russia, just some 200 km from Lago-Naki. Inna (the Russian guide) is one of my close friends, but I had never gone on a trek before this past summer, when they did their first so-called mixed Russian-English trek with Mark. This was the first trek in my life and I loved it from the beginning till the end - the views, the air, the nature...
We walked in total fog once and that was cool!:) Saw unique lakes, made a banya on a mountain river bank and swam in the river after having a nice banya. Met so many new people when staying in one of the camps. CLIMBED OSHTEN! - that's my highest mount so far:) and i loved it!
I also liked that there was a great chance to speak English and that's a great chance for People from both cultures to know each other better.
Speaking of difficulties - I was not getting ready for the trek physicically and the first day was a bit of getting used to the rucksack, walking with it etc, but then everything was just great.
One more thing - Mark is a very reliable guide, so you'll feel safe with him, which is important when you are in the mountains! So if you haven't been to our mountains, do go there!
