For the fifth year in the summer, our friends from Nepal come to the mountains of Central Asia to work on our seven-thousandth Lenin Peak and Khan Tengri. These are different students of the 7 Summits Club, employees of our Himalayan expeditions. At one time, we recommended them to our partners at the seven-thousandth. Now they no longer need recommendations. We are a little proud of it! And the fact that we are not forgotten, from time to time they are sending greetings for us  from the mountains!

 The guide of the 7 Summits Club Anastasia Kuznetsova reports from Iran:

Today is August 22, 2022, the second day of Fyodor Konyukhov's team's stay in Iran. Our main goal is still Demavend and today we have come one step closer to it. The morning was a little languid - a late rise, a leisurely breakfast, short packing and here we are going to the mountains!

A couple of hours on the mountain road and we are at one of the famous ski resorts – Shemshak.  Yes, there are many ski resorts in Iran and snow in winter, so many band members have already decided where they will go skiing next time.

The local hotel is completely at the disposal of our team only. Now we are at an altitude of 2800 m and we have to spend the night here.

In the meantime, easy acclimatization and a short walk in the nearby mountains.

Since the departure was already scheduled for noon, we decided to have time to do something else interesting. We took ATVs and rushed to the waterfall "Maiden Braids". We plunged into its cool streams and made a wish to come back here again - to go to the Eastern Peak from the North and go down to the South!

We hope to return here in a year, during which we need to have time to climb a couple more volcanoes under the Seven Volcanoes project!

Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and the group's guide, reports from the Elbrus region:

Greetings to all from our group from the Elbrus region!  Today we had an incredibly eventful day: In the morning we went for a jog, on the way we met the legendary climber for all 14 eight-thousand-meters without additional oxygen - Maksut Zhumaev. Then we did exercises, had breakfast and went to Azau. Half an hour later we were already at 3850 - we put on the crampons and ran to the Pastukhov Rocks. That is, of course, we went, but at a good fighting pace. They accelerated so much that they even climbed higher than the rocks!

On the descent, we managed to have lunch with Zuli (our dream) and returned to the hotel to rest before tomorrow's ascent to the assault. In the evening we decided to go fishing to calm our nerves before the upcoming ascent to the highest peak in Europe.

Nikita Slotin, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Kyrgyzstan:

Our group made a second attempt to climb the peak of 7134 m. The forecast has not been very good for several days! A chance to climb to the top is possible for a sports-trained group. On August 15 at 3:30, when the wind is least according to the forecast, we leave Camp-3. Many groups went out to climb on this day. But around 7-8 in the morning, the groups turn around, we try to go further. The wind, about 35 km / h, does not knock you down, but you have to fight, snowfall, creating visibility of no more than 25 meters. Experience and patience - let's move on. We pass the knife by 11-12 o'clock in the afternoon, everything is covered with fresh snow, we have to trail...

By 13:30 we reach the beginning of the ascent to the plateau, the height is 6850. Visibility is even worse, we are guided by rocky chain. We make an informed decision to turn around and go down, for a number of significant reasons. Tired, exhausted, we got to Camp-3, moved into tents and sleep.... Today we went down to Camp-1, the participants got acquainted with the avalanche danger closer than we would like, a small board came down over the "Frying Pan"... It's snowing in the Camp 1 now. The mountain shows itself! Treat the mountains with respect and awe...
