Caucasus: Glaciers

Glaciers are incredible ice structures, coming from top of mounts.

Elbrus covered with glaciers

They feed pure rivers and streams with crystal water.

Caucasus is rich in different types of glaciers.

Glacier Tviber

I fell inside of this glacier Tviber some years ago, on our way to top.

It is situated between Kabardino-Balkaria and Swanetia (Georgia).

Thank God, my friend took me out rather quickly.

Our way back  we made on special sledge, sliding from 3400 m down to valley.

It was quite a risky and breath-taking-away experience!

Life is an adventure!
