Olga Startseva, a manager of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Chile:

Hola! The Despacito group from Chile, Atacama Desert is in touch. We are slowly but surely moving towards our goal, fulfilling all the points of the program. Today, the full group spent the night at the Tejos shelter, 5837 meters above sea level. For many, such a high-altitude overnight stay was the first time. The weather did not spoil us, it was snowy and cool. But in the shelter house it was warm, sincere, fun and very tasty. It's amazing how at such a height our head chef Elena Abramova pleases us with a delicious dinner. And, of course, it was very extreme to drive cars to a height exceeding Elbrus. The starry sky over Ojos was the highlight of the night.

In the morning, we all went down to our camp on Laguna Verde, which has already become our home. Now we are resting and gaining strength before the decisive day of our program. We stay in touch. The guides of the group are Nikita Slotin and Boris Egorov.
