Director of the 7 Summits Club Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Peru:

Greetings from Peru from Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko!  We want to tell you how we spent an unforgettable night on the wall at the Sky Lodge Hotel in the Sacred Valley in Peru, near Machu Picchu. We got to the beginning of the route around 17.00. The way to our hotel room on the wall ran along Via Ferrate (staples in the form of stairs and cables). We were given harnesses, helmets, gloves and we ran, as we wanted to get to our hotel before dark. Usually it takes 1.5-2 hours. Although we are accustomed to via Ferrata (in the Crimea and the Alps), we still often stopped to capture each other and the gorgeous views - the Sacred Valley of the Incas, leading to Machu Picchu, spread out below us. The way up is not difficult, but there are overhangs and an interesting place like the Tyrolean traverse (as on Carstensz).

By six in the evening, with sunset, we reached the hotel itself - several capsules on platforms attached to the wall. It turned out that we are the only guests of this hotel. The rest refused or could not come because of the recent political unrest in Peru.

The sleeping room is chic - transparent walls with 360 views, soft beds. There's even a toilet. But to get into the capsule-dining room, every time you need to put on helmets and climb the via Ferrata.

Christmas was celebrated with a wonderful dinner from a Swiss chef. Dinner is prepared in advance, it is warmed up on the wall and beautifully decorated before serving. And also with a bottle of Peruvian red and to the sounds of fireworks from local towns.

In the morning, we whistled merrily down six ziplines, where a bus was already waiting for us, taking us to new adventures. We plan to make a super program in Peru in the near future with Rainbow Mountains, an overnight stay on the wall, beautiful simple ascents to the 5th and 6th thousandths, possibly with the addition of Machu Picchu. Everything is nearby. And everything is so interesting!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Tierra del Fuego:

 Greetings from the island of Tierra del Fuego! Our sudden exploration of these areas for future programs is coming to an end. We have already managed to drive more than 2000 km, all roads to the end. To go and run for a hundred kilometers, it's a pity we didn't take a kayak, more locations would be available. Undeterred animals and birds, beautiful untouched views around: mountains, forests, lakes, islands, straits – there was everything. There are plans to get to higher mountains covered with glaciers. This is the next time, but very soon. Guides Artem Rostovtsev and Lena Abramova.

Director of the 7 Summits Club Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Peru:

Greetings from Peru from Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko!  On the first morning of our stay in Peru, we went to the Rainbow Mountains. On the way, we admired the endless herds of alpacas and wonderful views. We drove part of the way to the Rainbow Mountains on quad bikes, as we had to hurry to the second part of the program of this eventful day (which we will tell you about later)…

At the top, we unfurled the flag of the 7 Summits Club and enjoyed the views of the local highest point - AUSANGATE - a technically difficult six-thousandther. Rainbow Mountains pleased us with their multicolored iridescences. Plus, we were lucky to climb almost alone, as we decided to go from another, less popular side.

By lunchtime we had already returned to Cuzco and set off to meet a new adventure.
