Alexander Abramov from Turkey: Greetings from Ararat! Today there  was a busy day. We left the hotel early in the morning to meet Ararat. On the way, we took our time and swam in Lake Van. In Dogubayazit, we changed the transport and went to the starting point. The trail is heavily eroded by the rains and now the route starts a little lower than before, right from the village. We gained a vertical kilometer during the day and came to the Base Camp at an altitude of 3200 m. In the evening, a cultural program was presented in the form of Kurdish folk songs and dances  And, of course, preparations were underway for tomorrow. Tomorrow is the day of acclimatization.

Hello to all from Iran! Today our group started climbing to the peak of Tochal (3960m). We went to the Elburs mountain range, 900 km long, where both Tochal and Demavend are located. In 3.5 hours we reached the Shirpalla Refuge at an altitude of 2800 meters. The route passed along a picturesque path, the upper part of which is the Via Ferrata.

We were comfortably accommodated in the shelter and walked a little up. Tomorrow we will have a hard day - about 5-6 hours to the top of Tochal, then 5-6 hours down to Tehran.

In the evening, we watched a film about Russia at the refuge and went to bed early.
