Lyudmila Korobeshko from Turkey:  Greetings from the slopes of Ararat from the Turkish Gambit team! Our large group (26 people) climbed to acclimatize to the height of 4200. We walked for less than 4 hours from 3300 to 4200, it is good speed! On the way, you can see wonderful views of Little Ararat. We spent 40 minutes in the assault camp on 4200. There we drank tea and ran down to the delicious Turkish soup and Oriental sweets. We're resting now. In a couple of hours, according to the plan, there will be roast lamb and a continuation of yesterday's Banquet. It was the Grand opening of the new camp of the 7 Summits Club on Ararat.

Tomorrow we move with things on 4200 and in the same night we go to storm the summit.
