At our office in Kazbegi (Stepantsminda) you can rent all equipment that is necessary for trekking
in the surrounding mountains and for the expedition to Mt. Kazbek:
 crampons, alpenstocks, harnesses, carabiners, trekking poles, ropes, headlamps, tents, glacier glasses, sleeping bags, helmets, rucksacks, self-inflating mats and standard mats, Jetboil camp stoves, raincoats and professional mountaineering boots.

If you do not have your own equipment yet, or if you have limited space in your luggage, visit us and rent everything you need.
We also accept reservations.
To make a reservation, contact us by e-mail:
or on our Facebook profile: Mountain Freaks – Mountain Travel & Adventure Agency.

In our equipment store, you will find only proven brands such as North Face, Grivel, and Black Diamond Climbing Technology.

See below for a list of items that anyone who is planning to reach the top of Mt. Kazbek must have.
If you plan only trekking in the surrounding mountains, this list can be modified.

If you need help, please email us and we will advise you in choosing the right equipment for your trip.



  1. When you book shoes with us, you have to give the size you want to rent. We book the size you gave us and we can not guarantee that we will have smaller / bigger shoes available, if the chosen ones turn out to be too small / too big. Each of you should check what size for which the foot lenght is recommended by the manufacturer, and if you have the opportunity, you should try the selected size in the store to avoid problems on the spot. Remember that the lack of appropriate shoes or badly chosen shoes can exclude you from participating in the peak attack! In our rental we have the following models: The North Face Verto S6K Glacier GTX for men and The North Face Verto S4K GTX Lady for ladies (sizes 38 – 45).
  2. When placing an order to rent equipment, you need to pay 20% of total rental price to our bank account. This amount is not refunded if you cancel your order or if you do not relize your booking at the designated day. This amount is of course deducted from the final payment amount for the entire rental period at the time of settlement.
  3. After we confirm the order by e-mail, we do not guarantee the possibility of changing the order, the availability of additional equipment, other sizes of items ordered etc.
  4. When you collect rental equipment in our office, you need to leave a deposit. It can be: passport, ID or cash (the equivalent of the price of the rented equipment). This is standard practice in Georgia and it is legal here. The deposit is refunded when you return the equipment. A deposit is secure in our office and no third parties have access to it.
  5. If you destroy or lose our equipment, you pay us the equivalent of its price in accordance with the purchase invoice, which is available for inspection at our office.
  6. We reserve the right to cancel the reservation due to reasons beyond our control, e.g. loss and destruction of equipment by other customers, failure to provide equipment at a set time by other clients, etc. Of course, we will inform you about this situation as soon as possible.
