Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club and guide of the group from Turkey: Yesterday the group arrived in Van. The expedition of the 7 Summits Club has 12 members. Today, our team reached the Base camp of Ararat at an altitude of 3300m.
One member didn't get his luggage. And we should stay in Van until noon to buy equipment. And only at 9 PM in the dark we got to the tents in the base camp. We were waiting for a delicious dinner. The evening was a success. Tomorrow - acclimatization rotation on 4200!
