In Nepal, a new large expedition organized by the 7 Summits Club started a trekking route to the Everets base camp . Its name is "Everest-Lhotse 2021". For the 17th time, the goal of our expeditions is the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest (Chomolungma, Sagarmatha), whose height is 8848 meters. For the president of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov, this will be the 18th Everest climbing leadership. In terms of the quantity and quality of it , this is an achievement of the world order.
For the second time in history, the ascent will be made from the Southern, Nepalese side, along the Hillary-Tenzing route. The expedition started on April 11, and the summit assault is scheduled for the twentieth of May. Before that, there will be a cycle of acclimatization rotations, with an ascent on Lobuche Peak (6119m). For the participants of expedition, a comfortable base camp is prepared, providing all the conditions for a full rest. The route will be processed by the combined efforts of the expeditions up to the summit. During the ascent, all participants and guides will use additional oxygen. Each participant will be assigned two high-altitude guides-porters, experienced Nepalese climbers.
This year, for the first time, the team of the 7 Summits Club will climb the fourth highest peak in the World, Mount Lhotse (8516m). Acclimatization before the ascent and most of route coincides with the route of the Everest team. The final part is a straight, steep couloir, in which the ropes must be fixed. The head of the group, consisting mainly of climbers on Mount Everest, will be Lyudmila Korobeshko.
