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

And again, news from Tanzania. Today, a new group, which still can't come up with a name, began its ascent to Kilimanjaro along the Machame route. It was raining in the morning. We arrived at the national park in full rainproof ammunition. But while the necessary documents were being processed before going on the route, the rain passed.

And there the sun appeared. So we saw the jungle in all its glory, which could not fail to impress. And everyone really liked our camp and a delicious dinner.

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

 The Kilimanjaro climbing program of the “Kiliman 23” team has ended. Yesterday morning we woke up to the sound of rain - the first rain in all seven days of travel. Before that, the weather was perfect. And on the last day, the rain only wetted the road so that it was not very dusty. After breakfast, the traditional farewell ceremony with the team took place. Everyone sang and danced heartily. Many kind words were said. Saying goodbye to those who helped us these seven days, the guys left a lot of clothes, shoes and other things useful in the mountains as a gift.

After twelve kilometers of descent through a beautiful and slightly foggy forest, we came to the gates of the national park, where there was a farewell festive lunch.  At the hotel we continued to celebrate the end of the expedition. All climbers on Kilimanjaro received diplomas and commemorative medals for climbing.

And yesterday I met a new band on Kilimanjaro. Today the Kilimans flew home, a new group, which has no name yet, went on an excursion to the waterfall.

And tomorrow morning we will go on the route.

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

Day 5. Karanga Camp 3900 - Kosovo Camp 4900.  So the day has come, to which we have been walking for almost a week.  Today we came to the assault camp, from where we plan to climb at night.  The first part of the march from Karanga to the Barafo camp was quite easy.

Here we drank tea and went on.

However, our people, I don't know who, got everything mixed up and first put our tents in the Barafo camp, from where they mostly start to the top. Of course, we were a little surprised, passing by a familiar camp. While we were drinking tea, our home front workers managed to remove the tents set up, take them to the Kosovo camp and set them up for our arrival. And they also met us at the camp again with songs and dances.

After lunch, we sat in the sun, warmed up (and in February it snowed here every time) and had leisurely conversations before going to rest before climbing, the exit for which was scheduled at midnight.

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

Greetings to all from the slopes of Kilimanjaro from the Kiliman 23 group! Today we had a very long day, and a rather difficult march. From the Shira camp, we climbed the Lava Tower, which is located at an altitude of 4600 meters, had lunch, felt the altitude a little and went down to the Baranko camp at an altitude of 3900 meters.

On the way, we admired armfuls of flowers, a carpet of clouds under us and a view of the summit of Kilimanjaro. Fortunately, the weather welcome us with beautiful views, without dragging them into clouds.

And after lunch we went down to the forest of wonderful senecia plants, which impressed everyone. And there was also a view of the Kilimanjaro wall, which impressed no less.

 Greetings from Tanzania from the slopes of Kilimanjaro from the Kiliman 23 group!  Today we went up to the Shira Cave camp.  The first night in the tents passed perfect, and at six in the morning everyone woke up and began to get ready to go. The way to the Shira camp is not long, but very steeply climbing up. However, we walked it at a good pace.

On the way, we admired the amazing nature and plants, fried in the sun, took thousands of beautiful photos, drank tea and sang songs. After lunch we went for a walk. See the very cave after which the camp is named. As well as other beautiful landscapes.

When we returned to the camp, we had an introduction ceremony with the team, which everyone remembered. Everyone sang and danced. And this is almost at 4000 meters. So acclimatization is going well.

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

Greetings to all from Tanzania from the Kiliman 23 team! Today we left the hotel, having previously sorted things into those that we will take with us on a hike and those that will not be useful to us yet. After a short drive with the songs of our guides, we arrived at the beginning of the route.

The documents were issued, things were checked - at the entrance to the national park, the trunks and backpacks of the participants are checked so that nothing forbidden is brought. After that, we hit the road.

We walked 11 kilometers with a climb of 1100 meters and came to the Machame camp, where we had a view of the summit of Kilimanjaro. The road was very beautiful. We passed through the jungle, where the trees, shrouded in moss, were carried up, and tree ferns covered the sky.

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

Greetings to all from Kathmandu, from the Beautiful group! Early yesterday morning we made a rapid jump from Khare to Kathmandu. It's great that we didn't have to walk for three days and then wait for the plane in Lukla. Instead, we flew by helicopter from Khare to Lukla, and then immediately to Kathmandu.  During the flight from Khare to Lukla, our pilot was Simone Moro himself, so a regular flight became an unforgettable attraction with beautiful views. In the evening, a farewell dinner was held in Kathmandu, where all participants of the ascent received certificates and commemorative medals.

Экскурсовод Клуба 7 Вершин Ольга Румянцева сообщает из Непала:

Всем привет от самой красивой группы на Пике Мера! Мы провели сегодняшний день в Кхаре. Рано утром все арендовали недостающее снаряжение, после чего мы отправились на ближайшую возвышенность, чтобы научиться подниматься и спускаться по перилам с помощью альпинистского снаряжения. Скорее всего, на восхождении он нам не пригодится. Но, как говорится, учиться всегда полезно. 

Потом мы вспомнили, как ставить кошки на обувь. После этого техническая часть подготовки считалась завершенной. После обеда погода почему-то испортилась. Пошел снег, стало очень холодно. Так мы провели день, разговаривая за чашками кофе.

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

 Hello to all from the Beautiful group! Today we have climbed 700 meters and reached the last point of civilization on our way - the village of Khare, which is located at an altitude of 4900.

From here our ascent to Mera Peak will begin. We made today's journey in less than four hours, taking into account a slight deviation from the route to a very beautiful lake, and a tea party with a view of Mera Peak.

While drinking tea, a huge avalanche descended from the wall. From a distance, it looked very grand and beautiful. In Khare, we did not stop there, and after lunch we climbed another 250 meters to a height of 5150 for better acclimatization.

Everyone is cheerful and ready to move on.

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

Hello everyone from Nepal from the Beautiful group! Today we had the simplest and most pleasant day. Just some four hours of smooth ascent. So smooth that when we walked for about an hour and gained almost 300 meters out of 700 expected, I was asked: "Have we gained at least some?" Here, of course, good acclimatization also affects. So good that at an altitude of more than 4000 meters, instead of sweating tiredly, everyone goes and constantly chatter.

Today our path was not too diverse. From a height of 3500 we climbed along the river to a height of 4300 meters to the village of Tagnak.

But was he any less handsome for that? Firstly, the river itself with incredibly blue water and mini waterfalls.  Secondly, very soon after we started walking, a pyramid of a very beautiful mountain loomed in front of us. This mountain with a height of almost 6000 meters (the name will not tell you anything, and it constantly flies out of my head) is sacred. Climbing it is prohibited.  Thirdly, there was a small monastery on our way, inscribed in an overhanging stone. 

By lunchtime we came to Tagnak and after a little rest, we went to wander around the village in search of beauty. The beauty was hidden by clouds. But never mind, we are not just a band ourselves, but a Beautiful one.

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

Greetings from Nepal from the group "Beautiful"! Today we moved from winter to spring. We woke up at an altitude of 4200 in the snow and began to descend towards the village of Kothe.  As we descended, the winter landscape changed to spring one.  There was less and less snow, more and more trees. Soon leaves appeared on them, and then we descended into a fabulous forest with trees covered with thick moss, paths strewn with flowers and blooming rhododendrons.  It can't be said that it was an easy way, but it was beautiful.

And most importantly, today we saw the purpose of our trip - Mera peak, in all its glory.

Hello everyone from Nepal! Today our “Beautiful” group has a day of acclimatization and rest. The first night at an altitude of 3500 passed perfectly. Especially considering that we had very little sleep the night before. But now, finally, everyone has slept and rested.

After breakfast, we took a short walk, gaining another 400 meters in height. We looked at the beautiful mountains, basked in the sun and returned to the camp to rest before lunch. After all, tomorrow we will have a new difficult crossing of the pass.
