The team of Manaslu expedition of the 7 Summits Club went down to the village of Samagaon, to rest from the bad weather prevailing on mountains
Luda Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and a guide of the expedition from Nepal:
Hello from Manaslu from Lucy and Sergio! More precisely, greetings from Samagaon, where the day before yesterday we came to rest in the rain and mud, sheltered from showers and snowfalls…
September 18th. We're in Samagaon. Yesterday we sat until the last minute at the Base camp at 4800 in in hope of waiting for the end of rain. Instead, the rain increased, and the snow began to fall again. We could not stand it and after dinner, wearing all the Gore-Tex and polyethylene, rushed downstairs. We almost had to swim across the rivers - at least, wade through almost knee-deep in water. And we had to knead a lot of dirt. Before sunset, hungry, cold, but happy, we reached Samagaon. And here we rest!
In Samagaon we met one of our best Sherpas, an old friend - Pemba. Incidentally, he is the man who took video of the last jump of Valery Rozov on Amadablam...
