The next morning, we decided to take the lift to the top. The lift goes to 3800 meters, the peak of Elbrus is 5600m. We met a couple guys from Poland



Then got on the lift. Theres a small dirt track that the jeeps use, I was tempted to try it, but it was really steep & rocky. Maybe next time….



The good lift ends, then its just ski chairs. Old soviet ski chairs. They were not confidence inspiring


The safety catch was just a ¼ inch indent


The scenery was amazing!
