Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  News of the Everest-2021 expedition. Huge greetings to all! Over the past three days, we made an important acclimatization rotation and consolidated our success with an overnight stay in the Camp-2 at 6500m. There is no way to bypass the Khumbu icefall on the way up and down, there is only one way. And this path changes every day, the glacier creeps about a meter a day, and sometimes the seraks fall... While we were climbing, everyone was a little worried, but everything went smoothly. Overnight stays at 6100 and 6500 are a credit to us, and now a well-deserved rest in the base camp.

Hi, this is Maxim Shakirov! Members of numerous groups of our club come to Kathmandu! The city, of course, is unrecognizable... From the airport to the Yak and Yeti hotel, we drove only 10 minutes, which is not typical, of course, for pre-war, pre-COVID times...

We hope that after the descent from the trek, we will see Kathmandu with the usual traffic jams and bustle! All participants of the programs feel normal after tiring flights. And everyone wishes the readers of this page peace and tranquility in their hearts!

The "Everest" group of the expedition of the 7 Summits Club "Everest-Lhotse 2021" postponed the acclimatization rotation due to the movement on the Khumbu glacier

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal: Last night we planned to go up to Camp 6000 and the next day to Camp 6400. That's just the plan with the rotation exit failed, as late in the evening the Khumbu icefall moved a ... read more

 Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  Last night we planned to go up to Camp 6000 and the next day to Camp 6400. That's just the plan with the rotation exit failed, as late in the evening the Khumbu icefall moved a little. The prepared route was partially destroyed and required repairs from a team of Icefall Doctors.

As a result, we did not go out at night, but already in the light and just with an introductory task. We only looked at the icefall, tried it a little, and then returned to the camp. At night, we go according to yesterday's plan, already knowing a little what awaits us.

 The group "Lhotse 8516" led by Lyudmila Korobeshko also goes up tomorrow. Today they held ice classes, and after lunch they rested and prepared for the upcoming exit.

We started our tour with a place called "Moon Valley".  In La Paz, there are unusually few tourists, so all the museums are mostly closed. But there are a lot of people on the streets. Music is playing, everyone is walking. After the Moon Valley, we visited the historical part of the city. Then we went to the local market, where they sell vegetables and fruits, and to the witch market, where they sell various potions.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, Everest 2021 Expedition, from Nepal: Lobuche is a mountain, the Eastern peak of which is 6119 meters high. To climb it on the way to the Everest base camp, it was in our plans. But it turned out that the weather made its own plans without coordinating with ours. Yesterday we went up to the assault camp, where we were covered with snowfall, instead of the predicted strong wind. The snow continued early in the morning, and we had to postpone the ascent. Until better times. We went downstairs. And now it's winter all around. We have the main goal ahead - Everest.  In the meantime, we have a plan to arrive at Everest base camp tomorrow.

Alexander Abramov from the Everest Base Camp: Today and tomorrow we finish building our base camp. It turns out beautifully. Good job, Sherpas!

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Greetings from the Everest-2021 group! We woke up today with a beautiful view of Ama Dablam and hit the road. It seemed that it would be cold, but the whole day was again cloudless and the sun was shining. Again, the beautiful majestic Himalayan peaks were shown from all sides. To be honest, I'm tired of answering the team's questions: "What mountain is this? And where is this mountain? "By the way, a few words about our team. So far, in general terms. The team consists of 15 people, three guides, 8 climbers and 4 climbers. Representatives of 4 countries: Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Israel and Uzbekistan.

Today we spend the night at an altitude of 4920 m, in Lobuch. Before dinner, we went to check out just above 5000 m, at the same time to look at the base camp of Everest, from afar.

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  According to the established tradition, we had exercises in the morning. After breakfast, we quickly packed up and left Namche Bazaar. With the weather and views at the route, we were wildly lucky. In less than five hours, we reached Tengboche, at a leisurely pace. Here in this village at an altitude of 3867 meters there is the famous Buddhist monastery. If I may say so, it is the sister of Rongbuk Monastery, since Lama Gulu, the founder of Tengboche Monastery, came from Rongbuk. After visiting the monastery, we settled in a loggia in the village of Diboche.

A guide 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov: The group "Three guest workers, not counting the dog"is in touch. Yesterday we crossed from Kothe to Tagnak, and on the way our dog decided to leave us. But it was immediately replaced by a new dog, so that's all right! In Tagnak, the local Sherpas were very insistent to persuade us to drink a local alcoholic drink, but we had work to do, so we refused. After the night, part of the group already felt the height and then during the day we walked slowly, but still reached the loggias of Khare. These are the last loggias on our way. The road has tired everyone, but we are serious. Tomorrow will be the last day of equipment preparation and technical skills training. Then we go to the base camp on the glacier.
