Georgia to Russia border crossing at Kazbegi
Belle Sinclair (Belle) & Nadine Holfter (Nadsicles), The Gobi Gals on their way to Mongolia riding scooters, yesterday crossed from Georgia into Russia in the Kazbegi region. They used the E117 road from Stepantsminda in Georgia through the border crossing onto the A 301 road to Vladikavkaz in Russia.
They would like other HUBB members to be aware that the border is open to Non-Georgian & CIS citizens but closes daily at 2200 hours. If you use this crossing be sure to buy vehicle insurance before leaving the border – they don’t tell you this at the border and they were waved through before they could find out where to buy the required cover.
After the border the next nearest place is Vladikavkaz but the office there is hard to find.
Also, they warn to be aware of the road leading up to the border on the Georgian side – it is very rough with several totally unlit & very dark tunnels with equally poor road surfaces in the tunnels. They found it to be very dangerous on their little scooters…
