Dombai-Ulgen, literally translated as "The Dead Bison", is the highest peak in the Western Caucasus. Although considerably smaller than the high peaks of the Central Caucasus, Dombai-Ulgen is a none-the-less spectacular rock and ice formation. It rises along the Georgia-Russia border, just east of the Black Sea and west of Mount Elbrus (18,481 ft.).
