Providing expeditions
since 2005

Svetlana Kotlyar, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:

Greetings to all from the Elbrus region from the ZUCCHINI group! Yesterday we checked into our beautiful hotel "Povorot", and today there was the first acclimatization rotation to the slopes of Mount Cheget.

We walked along a beautiful forest path to an altitude of 2700. We walked cheerfully — after all, our goal was to reach the famous Ai cafe to taste the legendary pies and ayran with lingonberry jam.

We quickly went down, had lunch and went to the rental to get the necessary equipment for climbing. The team is great, we've only known each other for the second day, but we've already managed to rally and make friends! Tomorrow we will continue our acclimatization program and climb the Gara Bashi, on the slopes of Elbrus.
