  Hi!  There is Lyudmila Korobeshko from the Cho-Oyu expedition. So, yesterday, September 28, our team stood on top of Cho-Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world. Dmitry Ghinkulov, Irina Zisman, Lyudmila Korobeshko and our three Sherpas, without whom the expedition would have been much more difficult. In principle, we were lucky with the weather. Although not everything was so simple.  The wind was strong, it was cold. And also we got a night in a traffic jam due to the large Chinese team. We all bravely overcame it and climbed to the top of Cho-Oyu. Yesterday we went down from the top to camp 1 and spent the night at 6400.

 Today I'm calling from our actual base camp, ABC camp, at 5700 altitude. We are ready to accept congratulations… Tomorrow, September 30, we are already going down and are already leaving for civilization.

 All members of the expedition are happy, feel good and send greetings  to family and friends!

 Shisha Pangma 2018. 12, 13, 14 day expeditions. Stay in the ABC.

 On Friday and Saturday, 21 and 22 September, the weather got a little worse, at night and sometimes in daytime it was snowing. This fact did not prevent us from actively exploring the surroundings of ABC: we went down to a lake and walked to the glacier.

 Today, Sunday, the weather is getting better. In the morning we held a Puja-a ceremony of consecration of the camp.

 We are preparing to make the second acclimatization rotation with overnight at Camp II at the height of 7100, we expect that ropes to be fixed. Today we plan to arrange a bath day.

 Despite the fact that our camp is almost at the height of Elbrus (5600), wild (feathered) life here is in full swing. Who croaks, who tweets, who whistles. Our Sirdar Nima lures next to her tent, mountain partridges snowcocks.  These are large poorly flying birds the size of a bigger chicken.  Now the snowcocks are running in herds around our camp, croaking and eating the remains of popcorn...

 Our travellers  climbed to the top of Mutnovsky and Gorely volcanoes, they did not reach Avachinsky a little because of the sharply covered fog.

 Catherine has shared some beautiful photos of the route.
