The first group today went to the Middle camp at 5800m for overnight. And tomorrow they plan to go up to the camp ABC 6400m and spend 2 nights there. 

Tomorrow and the second group goes up, and the day after tomorrow-the – third group. Each group has 10 members with guides.

From the diary of Dmitry Ermakov, a guide of 7 Summits Club:

... yesterday, along with the opening of the bar, two massage tents were opened. Abramov hired masseuses from Tibet and now there is a turn for their service. Massage on 5200, whom going to tell, not believe.

 

 

In the evening there was a traditional hike to the bar, for coffee and mulled wine, and evening cinema show…

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!
