Elbrus Elbrus

Elbrus area

The Elbrus Region (Prielbrusie) is the name often given to a section of the Caucasus extending from the western foothills of Mount Elbrus to the Chegem valley in the east. It includes the highest massif of the Caucasus Range - Elbrus (5642m) - and those parts of the Main (Glavnyi) Caucasus watershed and side ridges that form the upper Baksan river catchment area. The watershed marks the border between Europe and Asia; also the national border between the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (part of the Russian Federation) to the north, and Georgia to the south.
