The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Turkey:
News from the slopes of the sacred Mount Ararat! Today is the first day of the trip. We reached the town of Dogubayazit and climbed to the base camp in 4 hours! We walked in the heat. Summer shows how much harder it can be to walk depending on the temperature. But we went up to the camp, had dinner, took a photo of the sunset and are now resting before tomorrow's acclimatization rotation.
