A guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

Hello everyone from Tanzania! Our group of Chronic climbers has completed its journey. Yesterday we woke up in a camp at an altitude of 3800 meters in almost native tents. And after the final breakfast and the farewell ceremony with the team, we walked 12 kilometers through an incredibly beautiful forest and came to the gates of the national park, where a festive lunch was waiting for us.

And although it was a little sad that it was over, the hot shower was much more pleasing. And in the evening, at a festive dinner, the participants of the ascent were awarded. Everyone received certificates and beautiful medals. And they have already started making plans for future ascents.

Now we are already down and resting at the Millennium Camp.

Super-guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

News from the Chronic Climbers group. Today we moved from Camp Barranco to Camp Karanga.  To do this, we needed to climb the Baranko Wall. Climbing this wall invariably causes a lot of emotions. At first, looking at the wall, everyone asks the question "how to climb it?", and then they climb, watching with surprise a string of porters who overcome the wall with luggage on their heads.

After overcoming the wall, we had a tea party, before which we sang a little and even danced, despite the height of 4,200 meters.  And then there was a beautiful walking to the Karanga camp among beautiful trees and intricate volcanic forms. Tomorrow we have to move to the Kosovo assault camp.

Greetings to all from Tanzania from the group Chronic Climbers!  Today we made the crossing of the Lava Tower.  We climbed to a height of 4600 meters. Unlike the previous groups, this time we were very lucky, no snow and no rain, but in good sunny weather.

After lunch at the Lava Tower, we went down to our next camp - Barranco. The route to Barranco is one of the most beautiful sections of the Kilimanjaro hike. The path is decorated with outlandish senecia plants, waterfalls and a view of the Kilimanjaro wall.

Greetings to all from Tanzania from the group “Chronic climbers”!  Today our team finally came up with a name, and also got to know everyone who works with our group: porters, cooks, guides.

But before the introduction ceremony took place, we went through a long but very beautiful climb from the first Machame camp to the Shira Cave camp. From the area where trees grow, we went up to where there is nothing but bushes with picturesque moss. And then the bushes ended.

The ceremony of acquaintance was held with incendiary dances and songs. Tomorrow we have a big crossing over the Lava Tower.

The first day was not easy for everyone, but everyone coped.

In the evening, the whole group was engaged in coming up with a name, but so far not very successfully.

Greetings to all from Tanzania from the Sharomyzhniki group! The mountain part of our journey has ended today. In the morning we woke up in tents with a view of Kilimanjaro, to the summit of which we climbed the day before (we can't even believe it, it's so far away). And in the afternoon, after walking 13 kilometers through the jungle (where there are many, many wild monkeys) we went down to the exit of the national park and then moved to the hotel.

In the morning, before we left our camp, a farewell ceremony with the team took place. Many songs were sung and many kind words were said.

Hello everyone from Tanzania! Today, our full team has ascended to the top of Africa. It was dark, heavy, very cold. Not at all African. Then it became light and beautiful. And a little warm. From the summit we went down first to the assault camp, and then to the Millennium camp, which, although located at an altitude of 3800 meters, but there are already green spaces and a lot of oxygen. Tomorrow our trip to Kilimanjaro ends.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

Hello everyone from Tanzania! Today our group woke up in the Baranko camp with a view of the wall of the same name and the summit of Kilimanjaro beautifully decorated with snow and ice. After breakfast we started climbing the wall. This is a very impressive event. We have to climb the rocks, there are caravans of porters with huge bales on their heads. Traffic jams are forming, everyone is trying to get through as soon as possible. From pleasant - very beautiful views. It took us two hours to overcome the wall. After a small tea party, we continued our way to the camp among beautiful fogs and rocks. By lunchtime we arrived at the Karanga camp. We wanted to take a walk after lunch, but the rain again disrupted all our plans. So that we decided to rest and acclimatize not very actively.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

News from Tanzania from the Sharomizhniki group. We had a very long day today. We climbed to a height of 4600 meters to the Lava Tower. Gradually, the vegetation ended, and we found ourselves in a stone desert among clouds. After lunch and a little acclimatization, we continued on our way to the place of our overnight stay in Barranco camp. We dropped almost everything we gained during the day. But we found ourselves in a wonderful forest of giant senecias.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

News from Tanzania. Today we moved to the second camp called Shira Camp, which is located at an altitude of 3800 meters. In the morning we were introduced to the team that works with our group. There are 27 people in total. After that, we hit the road.

It was a beautiful crossing among the bushes, picturesquely decorated with moss. The sun shone the first half of the day, but closer to lunch, clouds covered everything, and it rained. Fortunately, we just managed to reach the camp. The rain started in earnest, and we had to cancel the acclimatization rotation. In the rain, the best acclimatization is to sit in a tent. But after a while the rain stopped, and we decided to take a walk to the observation point. We climbed a hundred meters in height. Three builders have built an elegant, but it seems not very strong structure. This is the end of our acclimatization for today.

 The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

Greetings from Tanzania! Today our group, which the participants decided to call an incomprehensible for foreign word Sharomyzhniki, finally gathered in Tanzania. And immediately the team left for the beginning of the Machame route to Kilimanjaro. Since we were not gathering fast, we started climbing to our first camp quite late. Therefore, only the first part of the way we admired the beauty of the forest, and at the end of the day we walked in the dark and listened to the sounds of the night jungle.

Hello everyone from Tanzania! Today, a new group of the 7 Summits Club arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport to begin climbing the mountain of the same name.  However, due to circumstances, so far only half of the participants were able to get to the beginning of the route. We hope that tomorrow we will all get together and start climbing Kilimanjaro.  The new group was met at the airport by the participants of the previous group, who, after climbing, arranged a well-deserved rest in Zanzibar. That's how the continuity of the groups turned out.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

The group "Lucky Chyk-Chyryk" sends greetings from the Karanga camp from a height of 4020 meters above sea level! Every day we are getting closer to the summit. In fact, we have one step left before the assault camp. And everyone is already a little worried. But, in the same way, everyone was worried yesterday, looking at the incredible Baranko Wall, which we had to climb today. However, everything turned out to be not so terrible. And slowly-slowly, or as they say "pole-pole" here, we all crawled to the top of the wall, and then walked a long way to the Karanga camp.

The weather today decided not to test us. It started to rain exactly fifteen minutes after we arrived at the camp. Due to the rain, the acclimatization rotation had to be canceled. We decided that we had acclimatized well enough.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

The Lucky Chyk-chyryk band sends greetings from the Baranko camp from the slopes of Kilimanjaro! Today was a difficult, but very beautiful and eventful day. The morning greeted us with the sun, a beautiful sunrise and a view of the summit of Kilimanjaro.

On this day, we had to climb the Lava Tower, gaining 800 meters of altitude, and then descend to the Baranko camp, dropping almost everything we had gained. Today the weather decided to test our strength. On the way to the Lava Tower, we got into the snow with the wind, and on the descent - in the rain. But you can't scare us like that.

 

 

Together with our guides, we sang songs and shouted chants: "One team - one dream!" and so on, ending with the invariable "chyk-chyryk! Hakuna matata!" So if you hear this from the guides on Kilimanjaro now, don't be surprised.

Thanks to the extraordinary team spirit, friendly support and inexhaustible optimism, our super team overcame all difficulties and came to the Baranko camp.  Everyone feels normal, and I would like to hope that it will be even better by morning, because this will be our second night at an altitude of 3900.
