Arrival to Nepal, whether you visited this country before or a newcomer, is always a thrill. Especially, when you have a wonderful reception by 7 Summits Club office in KATHMANDU. #Gokarna Forest resort where we are staying is a ranch full of wonders. Starting with curious monkeys, jungle walks, SPA on premises and very polite and helpful personell.
Our group is here to see how international and Nepalese efforts of overcoming the major 2015 earthquake aftermath is taking effect on tourists and tourism industry in general. Kathmandu office of 7 Summits Club is located in the trading center of the city and full of memorabilia, authographs, books and awards.


Going around historical center and surroundings of Kathmandu, we can see that 2015 earthquake did a lot of damage. Over 1000 people lost their lives in Kathmandu itself. At the same time, many buildings had survived 8+ magnitude #earthquake in Nepal. Probably it's because all buildings tight up together with concrete, masonry, metal frames, that it makes one monolith net of houses, knitted into each other for centuries. Many buildings are still not rebuilt. Not enough funding. And funding comes from tourism - mountaineering, climbing, trekking, rafting, historical sightseeing, spiritual searches, and many others. And the tourists are not here. Tourism had dropped 50 to 70 percent in different segments. It will be a bigger post later on this subject. So stay tuned.

October 29 (Thursday), beginning at 19.00. Next Thursday we will start a course of theoretical training on mountaineering. The first will be six time Everest summiter Alexander Abramov.

"How to climb Mount Everest." Beginning at 19.00
Address: Bolshaya Pereyaslavskaya 7.

Alexander (Alex) Abramov has organized 17 Himalayan expeditions, 12 - on Everest.

We were treated by the ordinary people who never go to the mountains, to help them to climb Everest. And now, after the Hollywood film, it has become a common issue: could untrained novice climb the top of the World? Although the answer is obvious to us, but it requires clarification ....

Alexander Abramov believes that the top of Everest is available to any healthy person!
Everest is the scene of specific mountaineering, and now it may be reached by climbers of different levels of training.

Jumbo, my friends! It is Vladimir Kotlyar, I speak straight from the highest point of Africa, the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak - 5895 meters. The great weather, what stunning views! The whole group reached the summit. People, of course, tired. They still do not quite understand what they did. But I think on the way down, they could understand all. Good job! And now we take pictures, admire the beauty. And we begin the descent. Down, down, down - to eat, to rest, to recuperate. Tomorrow we will continue go downhill ... ..

The sky is clear. In fact, all previous days we are very unlucky with the weather. Unfortunately, it rained, it was damp and we could not see anything. But now we are above the clouds, and the view is breathtaking. In general, you could congratulate us with the successful climb! We did it!

Olga Rumiantseva from Nepal: 

 Today we visited Kathmandu. Moreover, we got acquainted with the capital in very different ways. We went to see the stupa of Boudhanath. It is being rebuilt after the earthquake. But, despite the fact that the top of the stupa demolished, the atmosphere of the place is preserved.

In the monasteries the monks pray, in souvenir shops to tourists trying to sell the most incredible things.

 Then we went to Swayambhunath. Having 365 steps on the road photographing numerous monkeys, we cleaned our karma, and looked at Kathmandu with the bird's eye view.

 After that we went to the Kathmandu city, on the famous Freak street. No freaks or hippies we discovered there. Looked at the consequences of the earthquake, as this part is in Kathmandu has suffered enough.

 In the end of the day, we went to visit the Director of our Nepali office – Mingma Sherpa. He invited us to visit his home to meet the family and enjoy traditional Nepalese food.

 Tomorrow morning we fly to one of the paradises of Nepal - Pokhara.

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov  already from Moscow. As you know, we visited  Matterhorn, but we have not climbed it. Two of the guys who came before us in the Matterhorn - and we do not see them. We hope that they all right. Morning, I saw a helicopter flying around the Matterhorn. We hope that they are OK...
I and Luda, we went down to Zermatt, then we climbed Riffelhorn, then we went down to Chamonix ... Well, basically, what the reason: there is no people, no trails, rocks in the snow, all the ropes in the ice. The main conclusion is that we must climb in the Alps, yes, actually in all the mountains, right in the season.

Hello! Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko from the foot of the Mount of Matterhorn. Now we are, half an hour ago, came to the hut Hrnli. Chic new hut, and we managed to find a winter bay. It was on the second floor and have to climb the stairs.
Well everything is inside: 20 beds, light, of course, a place for cooking and even a battery that works. The only problem is, there's no blankets. It is specially made to how few people there for the night. We  also did not bring sleeping bags...

Alex Abramov from Chamonix:

Today (5th of October) our team had been training on the glacier Mer de Glace on the slopes of Mont Blanc, near the station Helbronner at 3500m. At first, not all members had enough oxygen. Plus, it seems, before us, very few people went there. Therefore, we trample the snow above the knee. Some of us even fell, and as a result actually fall into a crack. It starts a pulling-out or self-rescue.

The result of today: a conclusion that it is better never to fall into a crevasse! It is not the fact that your partner have the strength and ability to get you out into the daylight.

In the evening, it was a small party of songs with guitar and by the fire!

Everybody is happy. Now we go on a training climb on one of the most famous peaks - Grand Paradiso (4061m) in Italy.
