Natalia and Igor Smirnovs from Nepal:

Yesterday, April 26, we successfully climbed Dump peak 6015. Here it is also called Tapa Peak. We would not call this  mountain a trekking peak. It was rather hard  with the use of crampons, ropes and harnesses. At some point, we regretted not taking the ice axes. There were even sections of rock climbing at an altitude of 5600-5800. However, we are usually lucky with the route-the rain, the ice, the snow on the waist.

Today in the morning we went down to the village of Marfa at an altitude of 2700.

In General, it was a great trekking with picturesque views of Dhaulagiri and a worthy end of the route-climbing to the Dampus peak!

Dmitry Ermakov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

Expedition Everest 2018. Day 5. Yet the most memorable day of the expedition. But first things first. In the morning we woke up, ate, were going to go the airport. But Alex Abramov said that at the airport there was an  accident, the plane either rolled out of the lane, or broke the chassis and now all flights are postponed. But we decided to try the chance, went to the airport. This is a Zombieland simply, several thousands of people, there is no information. We went back to the hotel. Once we arrived at the hotel - it is reported that it seems to have opened the airport, we are back there. Wild queues everywhere, at the entrance, at check-in to passport control. As a result, after going through all the circles of the airport, were in a waiting room. Planes fly, but our flight is delayed. And we were waiting 4 hours in a row. But finally around 5pm we arrived in Lhasa. Everyone is happy, in a pleasant shock from the hotel. And there we met our first band again. Crouch and sleep…

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Lhasa – a city of one million at the height of 3700 m. The last 10 years, the city adds something like 50 thousand people annually. All the newcomers are Chinese. The infrastructure is ready to accommodate 1.5 times more, and they do not stop there - they are being built and improved.

 As a benefit, there is a new useful health and time of deployment. The platform in the sphere of interest was quickly found, acclimatization is only to help, several times were able to work with your hands against gravity.

Tomorrow morning we allowed ourselves to run before a long running break, but a little, 20 minutes, and not fast. Still, the height is about 3700 m.
