Anastasia Kuznetsova, the 7 Summits Club guide, from Tanzania: 

News from Tanzania! Day 4 on Kilimanjaro. The 7 Summits Club  group passed the test and now we go further according to plan B. That is, we pass two transitions in a day, and spend the night in the camp of Barafu at 4600 m. Next, according to the plan, the transition to the camp of Kosovo at 4800 and the assault on the summit. We started today from Barranco Camp, one of the most beautiful in Kilimanjaro. At night at the foot the city of Moshi twinkled and the stars shone, and in the morning opened a view of the entire massive of Kilimanjaro. We were able to walk along the Barranco wall in good weather and as soon as we climbed the wall, it started to drizzle. Then we enjoyed the beauty of the Karangu Valley and in the late afternoon we went up to Barafu, which means "snow camp"in Swahili. Hello and warm hugs from sunny Tanzania!

Maxim Shakirov, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Today our group went up from Deboche to Dingboche. It seems that we have already begun to get used to moving in the clouds. The obvious plus is that it's not hot! But minus: limited visibility and dampness. But... For the second evening in a row, we have spectacular sunsets!!!

 

 

Daria Sivova, the 7 Summits Club guide: Today we went from Namche Bazar to Deboche from 3400m to 3800m. On the way, we visited the Tengboche Monastery at an altitude of 3867 meters above sea level. We were very lucky: we got into the service. In the evening, the main event of the day happened. We saw Everest and Lhotse for the first time! All these days there were very foggy, and we did not see the Himalayas. But this evening, while the whole group was waiting for dinner, one of our local guides came running to us and called us outside. To say that everyone was incredibly happy is to say nothing!

Tomorrow the whole group will go to Pheriche. Wish us good weather and good luck!
