The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Larin reports from Nepal:
News from the 14x8000 project team. Today, on September 6th, as planned, we flew by helicopter to the village of Samagaun, Moonshine according to Russian (3800m), to the starting point for the start of the ascent to Manaslu. The weather was good for flying, we were lucky. Moonshine is not made here for some reason, but Ruslan vodka is sold. The Ruslan vodka bottling plant was built in Nepal under the USSR with the assistance of the Moscow Crystal Plant. We plan to spend three nights here for acclimatization.
