THE RMH TRIBE

RMH is way more than just Mount Elbrus Guiding.

It’s All About The People Who Are Behind

"Below are the ones who were Born For This. RMH is not just a Mount Elbrus Guiding Company. It's way more than that. RMH is the tribe of local Elbrus yetis. The best of the best ones in the industry. RMH is a family. We are the caste, and Elbrus Guiding has been in our DNA for decades."

~ Vitaly Stegno

RMH is a family-owned and operated business. This is where we put all our heart and soul. RMH is what we eat, sleep, and breath for 24/7. RMH is everything to us. We dedicated our lives to everything we do here and to HOW we do it. It has never been just a business to make money for us. RMH as a company is the embodiment of our dreams and our vision. We got a Dream Team and we deliver the most unique and personal touch family-style Elbrus Guiding experience, the deepest local knowledge, International Western Guiding standards, and the highest possible level of safety. At RMH, we believe that we are in the business of “Experience of a Lifetime” and this is what we do every single day. We never stop and continue to develop. We are innovators. We exist because of our passion for guiding on Planet Elbrus and bringing our guests to the very top of Europe. Everything we do here at RMH starting from the very tiny detail is a reflection of that passion. We were able to make Mount Elbrus the center of the planet to us. This is where we grew up and live our favorite lives, and we try to do everything we can to protect it. Mount Elbrus is our Home. Our different Planet and we are deeply in love with it. We are here to make your trip to Elbrus safe and flawless.
