By constructing the HUT named AltiHut 3.014, Company Altitude is offering exceptional, professional and flexible services to our guests in a sustainable, innovative and environmentally friendly way; our mission is to make the stay unforgettable experience in our hut and in the Country.
Our Vision is to act as a change agent and make fundamental shift in adventure tourism and mountaineering culture in Georgia and make Georgian mountainous regions and adventure tourism valuable based on responsible leadership i.e. managing natural, economic and human resources responsibly and minimize our impact upon them. With this Impact Investment, Altihut team strives to deliver and create new Eco System in Kazbegi region, in order to make the climbing, tracking and hiking more secure and environmentally friendly.
Altihut is located on elevation of 3,014 MASL near Sabertse pass in the surroundings of the Gergeti Glacier on the way to the Mountain Kazbegi (5,054 m). It is located 800 m above the Gergeti Holy Trinity Church (XIV C) and at 600 m below the Bethlemi hut. The location was carefully selected after numerous visits together with various theme experts: avalanche specialists, geologists, civil engineers, local guides and tourism professionals. The chosen location of the AltiHut 3.014 situates above the village Stepantsminda (1’700m ASL), 156 km away from the capital Tbilisi in the North.
The reason of choosing the location was determined with the absence of elementary waste management solution in the area. As it is much visited place, it was under the threat to become one of the dirtiest places on the planet. The initial aim ot the project was to install basic waste management system on this location… So this is how it started…
First you have to arrive to Stephantsminda, from there you may get to Gergeti village, and to Gergeti Trinity Church, form where there is a hiking trail to AltiHut. It will take approximately 2,5 hours to get to the AltiHut.
It is approximately 6 km, the trail is easy to medium difficulty walking.
Tracking shoes, tracking sticks (recommended), hat, rain coat hat and water.
