The head of the expedition on Makalu Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Nepal:

 Greetings from Nepal from Everest Base Camp (altitude 5300) from the Makalu Minions team! This morning we left Lobuche (4900) and by lunchtime we arrived at the Everest Base Camp of the 7 Summits Club Expedition. Here we were greeted with a solemn formation and champagne, comfortably placed in large tents with beds, fed a delicious lunch.

For the next two days we will live here and acclimatize. All participants of the expedition on Makalu feel great. Almost as good as the Everest people who have been living here for three days.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, the head of the expedition on Makalu, and Israfil Ashurli, the head of the minions, were in touch.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

Greetings from Kathmandu!  Another group of the 7 Summits Club goes on a beautiful trekking trip to the Everest base camp. With the unexpected name "Cats". We arrived in Kathmandu and took a city tour. We touched a little on the local culture, history, religion - we didn't understand much, but there is something to think about on the way to the base camp. Tomorrow we will start, in the morning the plan is to fly to Lukla and take a little walk.

The head of the Everest expedition of the 8000 Club Viktor Volodin reports from Nepal:

Today is April 25th.  News from Volodin's group. We spent today in a training style, went out on the glacier and had a good workout on moving the steep ice. We walked along the U-shaped railings and staircases through cracks, after which we carried out analysis and work on errors. The condition of the participants is good, the weather is favorable.

Vitaly Lazo: "Today, on April 24, a Puja ceremony (a ritual of receiving the blessing of the gods) took place at the Base Camp — a monk read prayers for more than an hour. Once upon a time I treated this with a laugh, but when ice discharges occurred near South Annapurna 15 years ago, in which several Koreans died, I began to throw rice towards the future path together with the Sherpas and say: "Om mane padme hum!".

Puja was held, sanctified, we can go to the mountain! Our group will go upstairs tonight. Plan: we go straight to Camp 2 at 6400. Overnight — and climb to Camp 3 at 7100, overnight. On April 27, maybe Anton Pugovkin and I will go higher — from Camp 3 to Camp 4, just one touch — and immediately descend to Base Camp.

Vanya Rodin and Anton Skripachenko will climb up to 6000 meters and immediately go down without spending the night. And Farit will be walking in the lower regions, in the BC area."
