Alexander Abramov, expedition leader on Everest:
The expedition of the 7 Summits Club Everest-2017.
Today was moving day from Lhasa to Shigatse 3400m - 3900m. The morning a part of our team was not feeling very well.
7 hours we were driving at a speed of 30 km per hour. Faster in Tibet are forbidden to go. Good thing that we have 2 comfortable minibus 14-seater. In one is going 7 persons and the other 6.
The weather is unpredictable. It began to rain. Means in the Base camp it is snowing heavily. Thank God that we are not there yet.
The city of Shigatse - the second largest city of Tibet. It is liked by every our members: clean and comfortable.
Here we buy blankets and pillows. It is to sleep with comfort at Base camp and ABC.
All managed to do it – all you need to buy.
The team is friendly, like a family. And of course, the presence of four women very diverse our life.
For a while! Tomorrow moving to Xegar. A cold place, but interesting...
