Summit! Long-awaited confirmation from Tibet! The team of the 7 Summits Club successfully climbed Cho-Oyu. Congratulations!
Hi! There is Lyudmila Korobeshko from the Cho-Oyu expedition. So, yesterday, September 28, our team stood on top of Cho-Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world. Dmitry Ghinkulov, Irina Zisman, Lyudmila Korobeshko and our three Sherpas, without whom the expedition would have been much more difficult. In principle, we were lucky with the weather. Although not everything was so simple. The wind was strong, it was cold. And also we got a night in a traffic jam due to the large Chinese team. We all bravely overcame it and climbed to the top of Cho-Oyu. Yesterday we went down from the top to camp 1 and spent the night at 6400.
Today I'm calling from our actual base camp, ABC camp, at 5700 altitude. We are ready to accept congratulations… Tomorrow, September 30, we are already going down and are already leaving for civilization.
All members of the expedition are happy, feel good and send greetings to family and friends!
Cho Oyu (8201 m) is the sixth highest mountain in the world, located a short distance to the west from Everest in the Khumbu region of Eastern Nepal along the Tibetan border.
