1. On Everest expedition from the North. Today our guide Noel Hanna called. He is now in the base camp with the second group. Today there was an aftershock in B.c... But that's okay. No one was hurt. The camp and the route are at a safe distance from a possible way of rockfalls and avalanches.

They decided not go in the middle camp as previously planned, to wait for the first group.
The first group with guides Alexander Abramov, Sergei Larin and Denis Provalov came out today from the camp at the altitude of 5800 meters into the camp of ABC at 6400 meters. They are also OK. Tomorrow they will descend back to the base camp.

2. The group of Vladimir Kotlyar on Island Peak today in Pheriche has assisted in evacuating of wounded from the base camp of Mount Everest. They have everything in order. Their journey will continue tomorrow

A message from Vladimir Kotlyar >>>>>>

3. A new group led by a guide Artem Rostovtsev flew this morning from Kathmandu to Lhasa. Also, all according to plan. In Tibet, there no great destruction, the situation is calm.

4. Our office in the centre of Tamel (7 Summits Adventures) suffered from the earthquake. All employees are alive and well. They are working from home or from their tents :(

Hi! It is Vladimir Kotlyar, the guide of the 7 Summits Club expedition to Island peak. We are still in the Pheriche. We don't leave this place for the simple reason, that today our group helped to evacuate the wounded, which was got down from the base camp of Mount Everest. It was a lot of them here. So we just found no moral strength to be aside and leave this small village. Our help was very useful. All members of the group, without exception, actively participated in rescue operations...

Then we planned to go further but it was again a new push and we decided not to risk. So we sit here and drink rum just before bedtime, enjoying life. In General, here it is not so bad.

And we send best regards to our Everest expedition! We could not contact direct, we are worry and hope that everything is OK.

So, we sit in the mountains, everything is closed, but somehow we will get from there. All the best! The rum supply allow us to sit here for another week. Not more! Adios!
