Head of the Lhotse expedition Lyudmila Korobeshko:

Hello everyone from Gorak Shep (5200)! The weather has made adjustments to our team's plans. There was heavy snowfall for more than a day. Therefore, only a part of our group dared to take a risk and go to climb Lobuche under the leadership of Alexey Lonchinsky. Most of us went a little higher - to Gorak Shep (5200). Tomorrow we go to Kalapatar and hold our fists for our climbers on Lobuche.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, head of the Lhotse Group:

News from the Lhotse 8516 group. Hello again from Namche! We spend two nights here for better acclimatization. Today it was a wonderful day. After breakfast, the whole team went for a walk to the Everest View Hotel at an altitude of 3900. The views are really gorgeous. First, we were photographed against the background of the beautiful Tamserku. Everyone wanted to take a photo with Lesha Lonchinsky, who received the "Golden Ice Axe" just for climbing this peak.

  And after an hour of walking, we found an incredibly beautiful view of Ama Dablam, Lhotse and Everest. Half an hour later, we sat down for coffee at a famous hotel with a view of Mount Everest.

Then we went down to the village of Kumjung, where there is a Yeti scalp and a School built by Edmund Hillary. And a little tired, but happy, we returned to our Bigfoot Home in Namche.

Tomorrow we will have a long trek to Tiangboche.

Lyudmila Korobeshko the leader of the group:  Hello everyone from Colombia! Yesterday, our “Colombia Pictures” team successfully climbed  the summit of Tolima volcano with a height of 5220m. It was unforgettable!

A very beautiful peak! The ascent turned out to be diverse. You start with the jungle, then go through the paramo (high-altitude swamps), then moraines and end up in the glacier zone.

We were very lucky with the weather. On the night of the assault, it was warm and windless. We passed the dangerous rock section quickly with belay. And when we went out on the glacier, the dawn began and the views were stunning.  We were very impressed with the smoking active volcano Ruiz. At the top, we took a lot of photos and even almost made a landslide, jumping too much for the summit photo.

Today we went down to the beautiful green valley of Cocora with the tallest palm trees in the world. We are resting and preparing for a flight to the Caribbean coast, where we are waiting for a trek to the Lost City.

Lyudmila Korobeshko:  Hello everyone from Colombia! This is Lyudmila Korobeshko. Our large and friendly group called “Colombia Pictures” gathered today in the capital of Colombia - Bogota. And immediately we had to pass the first quest – how to get to the hotel, which is located in the historical center. It turns out that Colombians are big fans of sports and outdoor activities. On Sundays, the city center is closed, and hundreds of cyclists and marathon runners rush through the streets. So we had to walk the last 500 m to the hotel. We even liked it. So, until the evening, we continued to walk around the city, even climbed Mount Montserrat. We visited almost all the graffiti, tried the chicha and ajiaco. We also took a cable car ride over the nighttime favelas of the southern outskirts of Bogota.

Thanks to our wonderful guide to Bogota - Tatiana Nechaeva!

Tomorrow we fly to the coffee plantations!

A super team of Nepalese mountaineers with our friend Nimsdai, as the main character, is already celebrating the victory on the winter K2 in their homeland. It's time to mention our other friends and partners who have put a lot of effort into this mountaineering success. These are our Pakistani partners, with whom we have made friends this year. This is a firm that provided logistics for a group of triumphant climbers and, judging by the result, brilliantly coped with all the difficult tasks. These same people will help the 7 Summits Club's summer expedition to Karakorum, one of the goals of which will be to climb the legendary K2.

Lyudmila Korobeshko from Tanzania: Today the team of the 7 Summits Club climbed the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Due to a bad forecast on the night of January 9-10, we decided to go a day earlier. That is, we made two part of the route in one day before the assault. This made the task very difficult. But  from nine members, six  members reached the main peak!

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Tanzania:

January 7. Today, our group made a heroic trek from Camp Shira 3800 via Lava Tower 4650 to Camp Barranco 3950. This transition took about 9 hours and was not easy for our team. It's a good thing there wasn't a downpour like yesterday. But it was cold, windy, and foggy. The weather does not favor us yet. The most unpleasant thing is that on our night of climbing from 9 to 10 January, according to the forecast, it will be some terrible snowfall. Today we spend the night under the Barranco wall, tomorrow we will climb it and continue to the Karanga camp on 4100. And then - according to the situation.

Today, after a long transition and a large climb, many people have headaches. We decided to sleep longer tomorrow morning and recover.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and guide of the group, from Tanzania: Hello to all from the slopes of Kilimanjaro! Today, on January 4, my group arrived - 9 members. Since we had a free afternoon, we decided to spend time usefully and went to the waterfall Materuni. The trip was very informative and intensive. First, a half-hour walk to the beautiful waterfall with a height of 98 meters, which originates from the glaciers of Kilimanjaro. Then we went to a nearby village, where we were first served a very tasty village lunch. And then we went to the coffee plantations and did the process of making coffee on our own, from picking the beans and peeling them from the skins to roasting, grinding and brewing. All this was  made with dancing and songs in Swahili!!!

Tomorrow early morning we go on our climbing route - Machame. The first night will be in one step at 3000m. The forecast promises rains every day. We are getting ready - we take scuba gear with us!

Greetings from Bolivia from the height of 3800 from La Paz from the group "Cochabamba"! We came down from the mountains and relax culturally!

Today we learned that Coca-Cola was invented in Bolivia. And we even saw the ruined house of the chemist. However, in this house in the center of La Paz, he invented not a drink, but a Coca ointment that relieved muscle pain. Then on the basis of this ointment, another chemist from France created a wine. Pemberton (the official father of Coca-Cola) created Coca-Cola based on this Coca-Cola wine. At least this is the version of events we heard today, walking around La Paz.

 We visited the Central square - Plaza Murillo, where revolutionaries and presidents were executed. We also visited the gallery of the most famous Bolivian artist Mamani Mamani, whose grandfather was a leader of the Aymara, which probably influenced the presence of national motifs in his paintings. It is possible that he did not refuse Coca - too bright colors and strange animals in his paintings and sculptures. Of course, we couldn't get past the witch market. We went to visit one of them in her stall, looked at the dried babies and embryos of llamas and other wonders and medicines. Finally, we took a ride with the wind over the city on the local cable car - teleferico. Gorgeous views of the city from the height of flight teleferico!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 7 Summits Club group on Huayna Potosi reached an altitude of 5900 meters and retreated

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club, a guide of the group from Bolivia:

Greetings from the Cochabamba group in Bolivia!

We spent several days on the slopes of Huayna Potosi. There are two refuges on the mountain, at 4800m and 5260m. There were no other climbers in the refuges, only a few vacationers.

We've all been trying to know what the state of the route is. But over the past 8 months, few people have climbed to the top... They said there was a big crevasse and a ladder.

On November 30, we launched the climb from a height of 5250. We conjured up a great weather for ourselves. But the state of the route! This is the first time I've seen such bad condition. Even local guides who have worked on the mountain for many years said that they had not seen such a thing. There were lots of solid calgaspors, that greatly hindering movement. Somehow we reached the key point. Usually it was not a very difficult wall of 30-40 meters. Now we had to climb through the bergschrund and then make a steep exit to the slope and another 40 meters up. After this place started calgaspors again, and in addition opened a lot of crevasses.

In short, we reached the height of 5900m. We thought about time and safety, and decided to turn around. Of course, we are all upset. But we're alive, and mountains could wait. We may come back again.

We are currently resting in La Paz.

The group of the 7 Summits Club "Cochabamba" felt like the discoverer of Lake Titicaca

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club, a guide of the group from Bolivia:

 Greetings from Lake Titicaca from the Cochabamba group! Today we had a very beautiful and eventful day: we visited the Museum of RA II and its valiant builders - local Indians who built this and other boats for Thor Heyerdahl. Then we crossed to the Island of the Sun and wandered around it in search of titi (wild cats, thanks to which the lake got its name, pleasing to Russian ears). We didn't find titi, but we saw a stunningly beautiful sunset on the highest point of the Island of the Sun. We tasted local dishes and were most impressed by the huge local corn. We even asked the locals for seeds so that we could try to grow something similar in our homeland.

In our cozy hotel, we were the first foreigners since the beginning of the quarantine. While walking around the island, we met a group of girls (local tourists - not considered) and a single American. So we almost managed to feel like a pioneer.

Tomorrow we will move to the Island of the Moon, where young virgins were sacrificed and where in later times the Bolivian Alcatraz was located.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club, guide of the group from Bolivia:

November 25. Greetings from La Paz from Lyudmila Korobeshko and the group "Hasla la vista, Cochabamba"!

Early this morning, the entire group flew to the highest mountain capital of the world. This is Sucre, which few people know about. We arrived from Cochabamba, where we spent two unforgettable hours on the transfer, and this city left a lasting impression in the hearts of the group members. Despite the long flight and a day of rest according to the program, all members expressed a desire to go for a walk. We took a walk along the legendary Condor path ("Mamani" in the ayamara language) and visited the Moon Valley, which got its name from Neil Armstrong.

 The place is really very unusual and beautiful. We almost felt like astronauts. Probably also because there is almost no one else in tourist places besides us - the country opened only a month ago. Not everyone has found out about it yet.

Now we are taking a break from walking on the Lunar terrain, steaming in the bath. Tomorrow we leave for Lake Titicaca. Maybe we will be cosmonauts and discoverers there this season!

Lyudmila Korobeshko from Panama:

Greetings from Panama! This is how our programs in Bolivia start now! From visiting one of the neighboring countries! Here is lots of sun, lots of sea (or rather two, two oceans), a lot of fish (that's how the local Indian language translates the word PANAMA), many birds (including the amazing Quetzal), many butterflies and so much more interesting. Of course, the most famous attraction is the Panama canal, which was conceived by the Spanish king in the 16th century, the French began to build in the 19th, and the Americans finished in the 20th. The canal is currently closed to tourists, but it is open to ships (each of which pays a lot of money for passage, sometimes up to half a million dollars), and you can look at it from the bridge of The two Americas, standing with your left foot on one continent and your right on the other, which is what I did first.

Tomorrow I will continue my journey to Bolivia, where I will meet with a group to climb the beautiful peak - Huayna Potosi!

Leaders of the 7 Summits Club Alex Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko made a short trip to Pakistan. The main goal was to get acquainted with the country and the local operator, a partner in the organization of the expedition on K2. Let us remind you, that we are planning two sports expeditions on the second peak of the World, in summer and in winter. As part of a short trip, Alex and Luda made an attempt to climb Mount Khosar Gang (6200m). The summit was not reached due to strong wind and lack of equipment. However, in general, they come back in full delight with the country, people and mountains.
