Climbing Kazbek from the south 14.08-18.08.
In the summer of 2021 I decided to try myself in the big mountains, and my first mountaineering experience was with the company \Couloir\. I'm very glad I chose them, because their first class organization, competent managers and professional guides set the standard for me! My decision to go on expedition with Couloir was 100% right and from now on I will plan my next expedition with them only.
I was especially lucky with my guide. Natalia Mostovaya was my guide, a person with a great bright soul, great sensitivity and an unreal sense of humor. She is a person with glowing eyes, who loves her job and gives her all she has. The person who rallied our team, charged with confidence and positive throughout the campaign, made us believe in their strength and at the same time did not allow us to relax. Thanks to the training program arranged by Natalya I had a quick and successful acclimatization, and my strength recovered in time. Natalya has inspired me and set an example with her endurance, stamina, optimism and professional approach. It wasn't always easy, but even at the most difficult moments Natalia skillfully encouraged me and found the right words.
I think that half of success depends directly on the guide. And Natalia is a big credit to my success.
Thank you for Kazbek, Natalia! Thank you for Kazbek, Kuluar! ♥
