Artem Rostovtsev, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal:
The expedition of the 7 Summits Club team "Touching Everest" begins. All participants gathered in Kathmandu. Today we spent half a day on local history, on excursions and tomorrow we will start our journey towards Everest. The group's program involves a trek to the Everest base camp and then an ascent to Camp 2 through the Khumbu icefall using additional ("artificial") oxygen.
