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.
