 President of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov reports from Pakistan: The team "Welcome to Pakistan" from Pakistan. It is the best country. This morning, waking up in tents on the Diosai plateau, our team, tired after successfully climbing to the Highest point of Mount Shatun 5400m, was surprised to find tents littered with snow. Quickly plunging into the jeeps, we rushed down to the district center of Skardu - in the heat.

 A short road led us to paradise. We went to the Cold Desert, a unique place where the World Rally Cup takes place. These are sand dunes on which you can drive on all types of equipment. Beauty!!! In the evening we said goodbye to half of the team that finishes the trip. The second part of the team starts a new ascent of the technically difficult summit Hosar Ganga (6200m) tomorrow. There may not be a connection for 4 days.

The President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov from Pakistan:

 Leaving the town of Chilas early in the morning, we reached the settlement of Tato in 4 hours by jeep on a crazy road.  This is where our trekking, probably the most beautiful in my life, began. We were walking through a pine forest surrounded by rocky mountains and mountain streams.   And by nightfall we reached the world-famous Fairy Meadow place - fantastic meadows. Here we settled in nice wooden houses.

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Pakistan:
Today is July 15th. Broad Peak. Pakistan. 8056 m . Having successfully carried out acclimatization, we went down from Camp 2 to Base Camp on the 13th. It is on the 13th that Volodya Kotlyar, who performs a secret mission on K2, has a birthday. Two base camps, Broad Peak and K2, came to congratulate him. He turned 34 years old. The limit of youth that he had set for himself. Now adult life begins. Volodya, a great voyage for a big ship!
The weather in Pakistan does not allow us to think about the future yet. All the slopes were covered with snow. The snow has fallen even in BC. We are all sitting in tents. We read books, watch movies, make love. Who has what opportunities....

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Pakistan:
There is no Internet here, neither satellite nor mobile. The whole sky is overcast. It's raining. Luda and I spent a night in Camp 2. And today, under the roar of avalanches and the howling of blizzards, we were able to descend to the base camp of Broad Peak. Today is July 13th. Since July 17th, everyone here expects good weather. I have a different opinion. The weather in Pakistan this year is not encouraging. There are still no fixed ropes to the top of Broad Peak. And on K2 in general, ropes were hung only up to camp 3.

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, from Pakistan:
We came to the base camp of expeditions on Broad Peak. This is already good news. The bad news is that so far not a single person has climbed Broad Peak. Today, Furtenbach's team has already gone home after an summit attempt. It ended a little above Camp 3 due to the large amount of snow and no fixed ropes.
It looks like Lyuda and I came just in time. Everything is just beginning.... By the way, the food here is excellent. And the camp is very comfortable.

This morning we woke up and boldly moved towards the goal of our acclimatization hike: the Tochal Mountain 4000m.  The top has been reached. And then the weather turned bad, it almost snowed. Therefore, a quick descent to Tehran was necessary.

But in Tehran, two fully cooked sheep were waiting for us. And a toast for the successful ascent. True, everyone was clinking glasses with what they could: juice, ayran, water and delicious non-alcoholic beer.

Tomorrow we will move to the hot springs, to warm clogged muscles and joints battered by climbing.
