The North Caucasus is the off the beaten track part of the Caucasus mountains, visited by very few tourists compared to the south countries of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.

I spent over half a year traveling in every single republic and krai of the North Caucasus from The Caspian Sea to the Black Sea, from Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, North Ossetia – Alania, Kabardino – Balkaria, Karachay – Cherkessia, Adygea to the Krasnodar Krai. It was one of my most memorable trip ever !

From incredibly welcoming and hospitable locals to stunning mountains of the Great Caucasus, mind-blowing stones towers and medieval villages, I highly recommend the North Caucasus to adventurous travellers looking for a real off the beaten track destination.
