Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, Everest 2021 Expedition, from Nepal: Lobuche is a mountain, the Eastern peak of which is 6119 meters high. To climb it on the way to the Everest base camp, it was in our plans. But it turned out that the weather made its own plans without coordinating with ours. Yesterday we went up to the assault camp, where we were covered with snowfall, instead of the predicted strong wind. The snow continued early in the morning, and we had to postpone the ascent. Until better times. We went downstairs. And now it's winter all around. We have the main goal ahead - Everest.  In the meantime, we have a plan to arrive at Everest base camp tomorrow.

The 7 Summits Club guide Sergey Avtomonov from Nepal: !The group of the 7 Summits Club "Three guest workers, not counting the dog" stayed in camp 4900 for two days and waited for the weather. The first day we went to 5200, went down to the camp and then watched how it snowed, warming up at the stove. The next day we decided to earn some money by clearing snow, we were paid with food! Then the sun came out and we enjoyed the views and its warm rays! Tomorrow we go to the assault camp. The weather promises to be great, but the Sherpas will have to trail!

Alexander Abramov from the Everest Base Camp: Today and tomorrow we finish building our base camp. It turns out beautifully. Good job, Sherpas! They are constantly working with a pickaxe and crowbar, breaking the ice and covering it with stones. The camp turned out to have a view of the summit of Mount Everest. By the way, the top is visible only from our camp. Because it stands slightly below the others.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Greetings from the Everest-2021 group! We woke up today with a beautiful view of Ama Dablam and hit the road. It seemed that it would be cold, but the whole day was again cloudless and the sun was shining. Again, the beautiful majestic Himalayan peaks were shown from all sides. To be honest, I'm tired of answering the team's questions: "What mountain is this? And where is this mountain? "By the way, a few words about our team. So far, in general terms. The team consists of 15 people, three guides, 8 climbers and 4 climbers. Representatives of 4 countries: Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Israel and Uzbekistan.

Today we spend the night at an altitude of 4920 m, in Lobuch. Before dinner, we went to check out just above 5000 m, at the same time to look at the base camp of Everest, from afar.

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  According to the established tradition, we had exercises in the morning. After breakfast, we quickly packed up and left Namche Bazaar. With the weather and views at the route, we were wildly lucky. In less than five hours, we reached Tengboche, at a leisurely pace. Here in this village at an altitude of 3867 meters there is the famous Buddhist monastery. If I may say so, it is the sister of Rongbuk Monastery, since Lama Gulu, the founder of Tengboche Monastery, came from Rongbuk. After visiting the monastery, we settled in a loggia in the village of Diboche.

A guide 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov: The group "Three guest workers, not counting the dog"is in touch. Yesterday we crossed from Kothe to Tagnak, and on the way our dog decided to leave us. But it was immediately replaced by a new dog, so that's all right! In Tagnak, the local Sherpas were very insistent to persuade us to drink a local alcoholic drink, but we had work to do, so we refused. After the night, part of the group already felt the height and then during the day we walked slowly, but still reached the loggias of Khare. These are the last loggias on our way. The road has tired everyone, but we are serious. Tomorrow will be the last day of equipment preparation and technical skills training. Then we go to the base camp on the glacier.

Alexander Abramov from Everest Base Camp.  Yesterday, from Namche Bazaar, in 20 minutes, I and Lena Abramova, the manager of the base camp, flew by helicopter and landed right next to our tents. The Sherpas were happy to see us. We managed to check the sites of our camp, standing on the glacier. And then, under my guidance, we put up a large tent dining room eight meters in diameter.

Today we put up a bar of two American tents, ten sleeping tents, and a fence around our camp. We slept well. Our tents are as tall as a man. That is, two meters high, with an insulated layer and beds. Therefore, on the bed in a sleeping bag, covered with a blanket, it was very comfortable to sleep.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, head of the Lhotse Group:

News from the Lhotse 8516 group. Hello again from Namche! We spend two nights here for better acclimatization. Today it was a wonderful day. After breakfast, the whole team went for a walk to the Everest View Hotel at an altitude of 3900. The views are really gorgeous. First, we were photographed against the background of the beautiful Tamserku. Everyone wanted to take a photo with Lesha Lonchinsky, who received the "Golden Ice Axe" just for climbing this peak.

  And after an hour of walking, we found an incredibly beautiful view of Ama Dablam, Lhotse and Everest. Half an hour later, we sat down for coffee at a famous hotel with a view of Mount Everest.

Then we went down to the village of Kumjung, where there is a Yeti scalp and a School built by Edmund Hillary. And a little tired, but happy, we returned to our Bigfoot Home in Namche.

Tomorrow we will have a long trek to Tiangboche.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the expedition from Nepal: Greetings from the Everest-2021 group! We are climbing higher and higher, at the same time closer to Everest. Today we passed an endless number of panoramic points with views of many mountains, including Mount Everest. But Everest was usually hidden behind cloud cover. Opposite, views of Ama Dablam pleased us almost all walking day. The weather changes like usually in the mountains, suddenly and dramatically. But so far it is predictable:  it is good until lunch, then – precipitation start. Precipitation is still wet, not snowy, so we try to move in the first half of the day. Today, on the way, we looked into the Tengboche Monastery, someone to take a look, someone for the blessing of our expedition. Tomorrow we will continue our route "higher and closer".

 Namaste! This is a guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov and the group "Three guest workers, not counting the dog". On the first night, a dog came to us and became part of our group. It, like us, works for food only! As for the food, the whole group tasted the local doshirak and it turned out to be beautiful!

On the first day, we climbed to the loggia at 4000m by the pleasant sunny weather. The next day promised to be difficult with the ascent of the Zatrva La pass. The ascent to the pass was like a ladder from the movie "The Lord of the Rings"! The fog and gathering rain urged us to go faster! In the evening, we went down to the Tuli Kharka lodge, where we were promised Internet. But because of the storm that started just a minute after we got there, it didn't work! The next day we went down to Kothe through a misty forest, similar to the forest of Baba Yaga. In the Kothe, finally, the Internet appeared and we are back in touch. But it won't be for long - tomorrow it will disappear again! As it is, all members feel great and is ready to move on!

Mikhail Dedyukhin and Marina Vagina made a successful blitz ascent on the highest volcano on the North American continent and the highest peak in Mexico - Orizaba (5700 m). According to unverified data, the crater of the volcano of Orizaba is the most beautiful of all the “Seven volcanoes”! To check, you need to climb all seven yourself. Despite the fact that they had to freeze a little on the mountain, the climbers liked everything very much. Everything was great! The guide is great!
