 Oleg Savchenko is an absolutely wonderful person, one of the most important people in the Volgograd region. He is a highly successful businessman and established politician, who worked three terms in the State Duma of the Russian Federation, a Deputy of the regional Duma. In his youth, Oleg was a handball player, an international-class athlete, and became interested in mountaineering only after he turned 50 years old. With the 7 Summits Club  Savchenko made ascents to Everest, where he performed his unique project. With the help of Sherpas, a unique operation was carried out to bury the body of Slovenian Marko Lihteneker, who died in 2005 near the summit.

 

 

And also with us Savchenko climbed other peaks of the "seven": Vinson, Aconcagua and Carstensz. And so he finished everything on July 25, 2020 in native Elbrus.

Congratulations to Oleg! We wish you new summits, new achievements, good health and luck!

 On July 25, the President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov, climbed to the top of Mount Elbrus for the hundredth time. He carried out the ascent together with his wife Lyudmila Korobeshko and a group called "4x4", which successfully implemented the program of blitz climb. A hundred or more times on the highest point of Europe and Russia have made by some local guides. But they were all professional guides of Elbrus. Our President can be called that, but it is still not his most important occupation. Alexander can be proud of this achievement! And we are proud with him.

 Our congratulations! We wish you to make the second hundred by your own centenary!

2012. April, 10.

And on the 12th April we have tickets to the capital city of Tibet Lhasa. From there it begins the path to the base camp of Mount Everest on motor vehicles. The first group of Sherpas from our expedition had already gone to arrange the base camp.

On April 10, after a sleepless night, our team finally landed in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Our layover in Delhi turned into a battle with the representatives from Jet Air, who, after rummaging through our luggage, decided that we were carrying dangerous cargo and told us that they couldn’t take our equipment any further. We told them about our expedition to Everest and explained how important that hardware is to us.

We finally got them to come around, but only after giving them our autographs and a couple of Alpari t-shirts (and showing their managers the site).

When we got into Kathmandu, we were met with a flurry of commotion, rickshaws and rain.

This evening we are going to unwind with a nice dinner. Tomorrow we’ll pack up our things. On April 12, we fly out to Lhasa, Tibet.

-Lyudmila Korobeshko

Five minutes after we got the message from our captain, Maxim called to describe the team’s emotional state. Not everything he told us is suitable for print, so we’ll leave you with a few choice excerpts: “unpleasant”, “over weight”, “couldn’t get any sleep”, “Dusharin has gingivitis”.

We hope a decent meal will help cheer you guys up.

 

 

  

 

 

2012. April, 12. 

Today the Everest team of the 7 Summits Club visited the Potala, the former palace of the Dalai Lama. All members were delighted. We note a good attitude, hospitality of Tibetans.Everything in this country seems unusual. Even the World Map they have unusual ....

Alex Abramov and Mingma (Director 7 Summits Adventures) visited the STMA - Tibet Climbers Alliance, which organizes our Everest expedition. We met with the chairman of the STMA Mr. Chang. And the manager, whose name is Tsedron. The meeting was held in a friendly atmosphere.

 

  

 

 

 

 2012. April, 14.

The Everest expedition 7 Summits Club Everest meets the Easter holidays in the heart of Tibet. We spent a day in the city of Shigatse (3900m). It was very successful day. Nice sunny weather favored sightseeing tour, acclimatization, food intake and religious reflection on the eve of Easter. Next stop is Xegar (4200m).

 

 

  

   

 

 2012. April, 16.T oday there was a lot of things "at first"

First, we made the first serious acclimatization climb. Hooray! Shegar Dzong was climbed to the top (4800 m). This mountain name is translated as Fortress Xegar and it is very unusual. At its base there is an ancient Buddhist monastery school gelukpa - Xegar. And on the top we met a stupa and prayer flags. The last few tens of meters to go the top led by a very steep scree slope. And from the top we have a stunning view of the Himalayan mountain range and on ...

Yes, yes - this is the second "first" ... we saw Mount Everest. The majestic pyramid with a huge white flag. Probably a strong wind blows the snow off the slopes.

We hope that to the time of our climb the storm will be over.

Tomorrow we go to the base camp of Everest. That is, tomorrow we'll spend the night in 5100. With headaches of course, what would be a good for acclimatization.

 

 

 

 

 

A trip to Tibet inevitably ends up arriving at the base camp. As the most exciting moment in which we remember the first sight of Everest, from the pass. Here, each participant would like to part with the old life and makes a decisive step into the future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Puja ceremony was held this morning. It was a prayer for the success of the expedition. Wind was blowing to the top - up the hill. So, it is time to go up. Now cooks prepare our traditional borshch (beet-root soap). The first group goes up to an intermediate camp, and tomorrow to the Advance Base Camp at 6400m altitude. Today, Semion Deyak has to come back from Dzhangmu. We sent him down with symptoms of acute mountain sickness. We think it is all good now. Alex Abramov.

During today's day, we have watched the weather change. At the start, it was a clear starry sky, the dawn flashed with bright colors, then came the time of gray clouds, in which we climbed the Western and Eastern peaks, and in the afternoon "stretched" and we saw the sun. Tired, but happy, we are already at the hotel. Group guide Andrey Berezin.

 As you know, the famous Russian traveler and explorer Fyodor Konyukhov became the first Russian to climb the "Seven summits". And he has a long and strong friendship with the 7 Summits Club. In 2012, Fyodor Konyukhov, as part of our expedition led by Alexander Abramov, climbed Everest for the second time. And we haven't lost touch since.

Last year, together with his son Oscar, grandchildren and friends, and under the guidance of a guide of the 7 Summits Club Dmitry Ermakov, Fyodor climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. On our website you can read a report about this ascent. At the same time, the idea was born to continue cooperation and organize the ascent on Elbrus. The expedition to the highest peak of Russia and Europe is scheduled for August 2-9.

 

 

In preparation for the ascent to Elbrus, a special batch of equipment was ordered…
