Today our team moved from Phakding to Namche Bazaar.  Here we settled in the best hotel in the town - Sherpa Land. Each in a single room with a shower.

Since we have all-inclusive meals on the trek, we really overeat delicious Nepali food.  On the way, the rain caught us and we were wet for the last 2 hours. The day ended with a visit to the Irish Pub, this is a tradition of our expedition. Tomorrow will be a day of rest. And we will sleep for a long time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notes by Olga Rumyantseva. The team of the 7 Summis Club "Everest-22" flew to Lukla early in the morning and went on a trekking route to the base camp

At five in the morning, very sleepy, we arrived at the airport. And flew to Lukla.

Everything turned out somehow quickly.  The hotel, the airport, the first flight was ours. We hand over our things and immediately go to the plane. A small plane for 15 people. Forty minutes of flight among the mountains, and now we are landing at Lukla airport. 

A short runway in one direction breaks off into an abyss, in the other - rests on the slope.  Very impressive.  Airplanes take off and land one after the other like fixed-route taxis. It is necessary to have time to make as many flights as possible before the weather deteriorates.

 Lukla Airport is considered one of the most dangerous. Takeoff and landing here require considerable skill.

 In Lukla we have breakfast and set out on our way. Today we are waiting for a short walk to Phading. Four hours of a simple walk.

Almost all the participants of the expedition gathered at the briefing.  Leader Alex Abramov told how the team will live in the coming days. And finally the whole team got together, it was also an evening of acquaintance of the expedition participants. Basically, most of them are familiar with each other from past ascents in the 7 Summits team. Elbrus, Kazbek, Orizaba, Aconcagua, Ojos del Salado - in general, a standard set. Someone climbed Lenin Peak. There are those who have been to Denali in Alaska.

Georgy Kuzmin, a regular participant in the programs of the 7 Summits Club, found himself in Nepal again after a long break. This time he chose the program of climbing Mera Peak. And he shares with us his travel notes and photos.

 

 

Finally again, the long-awaited Kathmandu. After an 8-year break, almost nothing has changed. From the first moment, a sincere, joyful meeting warms the soul, creating an incomparable mood, a flower garland that lies not on top of clothes, but right in the heart.  I was pleasantly surprised by the new A-Loft hotel, in some ways more interesting than Yak & Yaty. Especially the pool on the top floor, visually breaking off from the 16th floor somewhere into the abyss. Otherwise, the same noisy, hurrying Kathmandu, with a unique highlight of the presence of the scheming Hanuman.

 

 

Eight minutes before landing, Lukla was closed and we crash into the Paplu airfield against the rocks. Does anyone like crazy roller coasters? You are welcome! It was a wild cry, mixed with hysterical laughter, either from fear, or from delight.

Pilots are a miracle! How they do it is incomprehensible to the mind. We fall, very gently, on a short piece of asphalt, and the engines freeze with relief! Hurray! Lukla, a pleasant surprise in all respects, however, quite understandable. A clean, very cultured town. The whole atmosphere creates an upbeat mood. Finally, having traditionally turned the drums, and having asked for blessings, we embark on the first part of trek.

 

 

The second day...  On the pass there is an unexpectedly pleasant little stone palace with a young Nepalese princess, who is glad to "passers-by" . She greets with a kind, slightly embarrassed smile and hot tea. Cool after the wind. But immediately the descent from 4507 to 4200. Just half an hour and we are in the caring hands of the lodge . Without exaggeration, unexpectedly cool placement.

 

 

Mountains are always work, of course. (I don't mean professional guides. Everything is clear there). Often merciless, heavy. Lightness and lightness are impossible here. From the sofa and the office chair to come here is madness and a burden for those nearby. Even a good physical education is not a fact of success. You go to each mountain individually and physically, and psychologically and emotionally. Overcoming yourself, your weaknesses, sometimes purely on the outside.

I return to the frequently asked question: why do I go to the mountains?  I'm trying not to fuss: I watch the mountains grow up. Truly, there is no fuss.
