Altihut is located on elevation of 3,014 meters ASL near so called Sabertse pass in the surroundings of the Gergeti Glacier on the way to the Mountain Kazbegi (5,047 m). It is located 800 m above the Gergeti Holy Trinity Church (XIV C) and at 600 m below the Bethlemi hut. The location was carefully selected after numerous visits together with various theme experts: avalanche specialists, geologists, civil engineers, local guides and tourism professionals. The chosen location of the AltiHut 3.014 situates above the village Stepantsminda (1’700m ASL), 156 km away from the capital Tbilisi in the North.
Another reason of choosing the location was determined with the absence of elementary waste management solution on the nearby place, which services as popular place for campers, which are on the way to the pick of Kazbegi mount. As it is much visited place, it was under the threat to become one of the dirtiest places on the planet. The initial aim ot the project was to install basic waste management system on this location... So this is how it started...
