Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Kyrgyzstan:  Hello everyone! Yesterday, on August 17, our group climbed on the summit of Lenin Peak. 12 participants and 6 guides. We managed to catch the weather window and luck by the tail on the very last day of our program. Everyone fought with dignity and deserved this difficult victory!

 

 

With this ascent, I finish the summer season of high mountains. Thanks to everyone who was there,  guides, participants, beloved waiting in the camp from the ascent, cooks and camp workers! It was a cool season and cool, emotional climbs! I hug everyone tightly! See you soon!

Aloha, friends! The team of the 7 Summits Club on Lenin Peak continues to prepare for the summit assault. More precisely, we are resting now. But, as you remember, we have a rule – if it's a rest, then it's active, if it's a holiday, then it's sports. Therefore, after breakfast, we went for a walk to the "castles" created not by man, but by nature itself.

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  According to the established tradition, we had exercises in the morning. After breakfast, we quickly packed up and left Namche Bazaar. With the weather and views at the route, we were wildly lucky. In less than five hours, we reached Tengboche, at a leisurely pace. Here in this village at an altitude of 3867 meters there is the famous Buddhist monastery. If I may say so, it is the sister of Rongbuk Monastery, since Lama Gulu, the founder of Tengboche Monastery, came from Rongbuk. After visiting the monastery, we settled in a loggia in the village of Diboche.
