Two groups of the 7 Summits Club climbed for acclimatization rotation on the Pastukhov Rocks. They slept in different refuges and climbed in different ways and at different times.  May Elbrus showed itself in all its glory: it is a bright sun, and the wind with snow grains, and clouds, and frost. From the Rocks of Pastukhov (4600m) climbers could see the Western and Eastern peaks and the saddle between. After admiring the magnificent panorama, all people went down to rest in the camp.

Hello from Bolivia! Our group successfully mastered the altitude of 3200 meters in La Paz and today moved to the legendary lake Titicaca. On the lake we stopped to visit the family who helped Thor Heyerdahl build boats for his expeditions. When you imagine how these boats went across the ocean, you realize that this was fantastic.

Our next target was the island of the Sun.

We took a boat to the island of the Sun. Forty minutes on the beautiful Titicaca and after a traditional lunch we walked the first small but very beautiful trekking to our hotel.

A sunset we met at the observation point with a beautiful view…

Our very long day ended with a wonderful dinner.
