 Olga Rumyantseva, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Hello everyone from Nepal! Days pass, and we still send greetings from the village with the lovely name of Khare. This morning we almost decided to move to the first camp, but after once again studying the weather forecast and its prospects, we decided not to risk it, but to wait another day.

Every member is ready to wait for the weather to become more favorable.

However, the forecast is improving and tomorrow we will go to the first camp.  And we plan to climb on the Mera Peak November 2. Today we walked around the neighborhood, climbed the local hill with a height of 5200 meters, from where beautiful views open.

Olga Rumyantseva, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Hello everyone from Nepal!  From the foot of Mera Peak, where today our team is resting and preparing for the ascent. Early in the morning, as soon as the sun lit up the slopes of the surrounding mountains and warmed the air a little, we went to a lesson where participants learned to climb and descend on a fixed rope on a steep slope. This skill can be very useful to us during the ascent on Mera Peak. After the lesson, we walked around the village. We looked at how they live in other loggias, saw greenhouses where lettuce and cabbage grow.  This is a very strange sight at an altitude of 4900 meters, among snow and cold.

Olga Rumyantseva, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  Hello everyone from Nepal! Today we continued to move towards the Mera Peak. The peak is getting closer, the views are getting better. Today we went up to the village of Tagnak. It's hard to call it a village. Rather, several loggias located at an altitude of 4,300 meters. Everyone is in a great mood. In the evening we rest and prepare for the next day – we plan to  reach the village of Khare.

The group's guide Lyudmila Korobeshko: Hello everyone from Ecuador!  From the group "Toropygas and Tortugas". This morning we were standing at the top of Cotopaxi - the highest active volcano in the world!

Even yesterday we could hardly believe it - when we drove up to the national park of otopaxi, a heavy downpour began and, accordingly, snowfall at the top. The bad weather continued until almost midnight. And in the previous days there were heavy snowfalls.

But our group was lucky - after midnight the snow stopped (all because in Quito we were given change with a few pieces of paper for $ 2). And by dawn, even the clouds parted and the stars appeared. There was still some avalanche danger after the snowfall, but our valiant Ecuadorian guides led us through safe paths. So at 7.30 we were standing at the top, tired but happy.

Now we have arrived in the town of Baňos - the gateway to the jungle. We listen to the murmur of waterfalls and relax in the spa. We are thinking what to do next…

News from Ecuador from the slopes of the highest peak - Chimborazo (6310 m)! Today there was a day of the assault for Boris Manevich and guide Franklin. The weather decided to surprise and show how it can be different in Ecuador. This time there was a lot of snow, wind and snow rain - a fairly common natural phenomenon in Ecuador. Not the most optimal conditions for climbing! Under these conditions, the climbers reached the level of 5700 m . Now they are resting already downstairs. Chimborazo is not an easy peak.

Hello everyone from Ecuador! This morning our team climbed on the second peak in our Ecuadorian program - Iliniza Norte volcano with a height of 5126m.  Yesterday morning we left Quito and arrived at the national park at the foot of the mountain. We started from a height of 3900. After lunch we reached the Nuevos Horizontes refuge at 4700. Here we met two Andean wolves here, had a great dinner with special Ecuadorian dishes and went to bed early. Today we left at 5.30. The route was heavily covered with snow, the rocks were icy, but this did not prevent our team from climbing to the top. We were at the highest point at about 9 am.

Now we have come down and settled in one of the old Ecuadorian haciendas. We will prepare for the next ascent.

Two days ago Boris Manevich climbed on the top of Iliniza Norte, 5126 m. After the descent, he had a day of rest and excursions in the Quilotoa crater lake area. Lake Quilotoa is one of the most beautiful places in South America, located in the Ecuadorian Andes. An amazing and original corner created by nature itself. It was formed here as a result of a strong volcanic eruption about 800 years ago. Locals believe that the lake has no bottom, but geologists estimate its depth at 250 meters.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club and the group's guide: Greetings to all from Ecuador!  Today we made our first ascent of Guagua Pichincha (4800) according to the program. With a sinking heart, we stood on the edge of the huge Pichincha crater, from where a powerful charge of volcanic ash burst out several decades ago, covering the whole of Quito. On the descent from the summit we were caught by a small snowfall, which quickly ended. On the way to Quito, we tried some firewater (aguardiente) and returned to the hotel satisfied and almost not tired.

Tomorrow we say goodbye to Quito and leave for mount of Iliniza. We will have a high-altitude overnight at 4700 and in the morning we will storm Iliniza Norte.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and guide of the group from Ecuador:

October 16. Hello everyone from the Center of the World!!!

Today our Ecuadorian team with the working name "Mitad del Mundo" visited the Equator Line. On the way, we attacked a fruit stand and arranged a tasting of the most exotic fruits - tasted cherimoya, naranjilla, granadilla, taxo... you won't remember everything.

On the equator line, they admired the scalps of people (the inhabitants of Amazonia loved and knew how to cook them); they learned to determine the time of planting, harvesting and resting by the sundial, put eggs on nails (some even received diplomas of Egg Masters), turned the water in different directions and dropped 1-2 kg of weight each.

Then we returned to the historic center of Quito, where we found an excellent restaurant in the bishop's palace with a stunning view of the central square and delicious Ecuadorian cuisine. Of course, we tasted locre de papas (thick potato soup with avocado and cheese), ceviche, fritado, empanadas.

And finally we walked around the historical center of Quito, looking at the numerous churches. The Church of San Francisco was especially impressed. The walls are made of volcanic stone, the ceilings are made of mosaic without nails or glue, huge organs on the walls, a wonderful courtyard with tall palm trees, orchids and talking parrots. And from the bell tower there is a breathtaking view of the historic center of Quito.

Walked up, in general. Tomorrow we will have the first ascent - Guagua Pichincha (4800). Getting ready.

Climbing in Ecuador by Boris Manevich. Today is the second day of acclimatization, climbing the volcano from the Pichincha group. Rucu Pichincha (4698 m) hangs over Quito, it can be called a home volcano.  Stunning panoramas of the city open from its slopes. For greater comfort and time saving, you can climb to a height of 4200 m by the Teleferico cable car. The ascent was made in a sporty style. We left the hotel at 9.00 and already had lunch there at 15.00. There's still a free evening left to do something interesting! Tomorrow we say goodbye to Quito and drive towards the main volcanoes.

 Boris Manevich travels according to the program of the Gornyashka project of the 7 Summits Club - climbing with local guides.

The authorities of the Aconcagua National Park are in doubt as to how they should behave in a pandemic. On the one hand, they cannot afford another missed season. And they need income, and hotels, and guides, and mules need food. However, you also need to show your concern about the possible spread of infection through the base camp. The example of Everest shows that this is not fiction.  The body's defenses weaken at altitude and it is easier for the virus to penetrate it.  It is extremely difficult to separate people, to ensure social distance. No one will seriously do this.

Local guides and tour organizers strongly object to the shortening of the season. In their opinion, this will only lead to more dense accommodation of tourists, which will have the opposite effect. After all, there are willing, given the delayed demand due to the missed season.  There is still a little time to change something. But for now, the season is officially shortened and will begin on January 1, 2022.

Rustam Nabiyev only by the power of their hands yesterday, October 2, climbed one of the highest peaks in the world - the eight-thousand-meter Manaslu! The 7 Summits Club took helped the expedition and received thanks from its leader.

Lyudmila Korobeshko:  Joann Chechnev, the leader of this expedition, sent these photos and information about the ascent today. Our 7 Summits Club helped the team with oxygen and  with some advises  before the trip. To be honest, when Joann in our office asked about Manaslu, I thought it was a very adventurous idea. In addition to the fact that Rustam does not have both legs, the guys did not have the experience of eight-thousanders. But they did the impossible! I am proud and admire! Well done!

 

 

 Joann Chechnev sent us (to Alex Abramov) greetings and thanks from the slopes of Manaslu:

Alexander, good evening! Yesterday we climbed on the top of Manaslu. The whole team, in full force. Everything went well. Thank you for your support! Rustam did an incredible thing!

 

Reportage on television:

       

 

Five years ago, Rustam Nabiyev was a paratrooper and served in the city of Omsk. The roof of his barracks collapsed, more than twenty people died on the spot. Rustam lay under the rubble for seven hours, miraculously survived, but lost both legs.
