President of the 7 Summits Club, head of the Everest expedition Alexander Abramov reports from Nepal:

 The little holidays have passed. Several trekking groups passed through our Base Camp. 50 people exactly. Not counting numerous friends and members of the 7 Summits Club. All this time the team was resting down the valley. The wind was at the summit of 50-85 km per hour all the days. Clouds raced across the sky like torn "Crabs".  And now our prolonged rest is coming to an end. The wind has weakened.

From 6 to 12th of May we warmed up in loggias and ate from the belly. Everyone was able to recover and overcome the cough. The whole team is healthy and ready to go. Now that's it: the last stage of the expedition begins. Climbing the summit of Everest. The plan was approved.

On the 12th we fly to BC.

13th and 14th preparation.

On the 15th, Camp 2. 6400m.

On the 16th, Camp 3. 7100m.

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

Greetings from Nepal from the magical Rivendell from the Makalu Minions team! We have the third (it is the last) day of rest. Yesterday, some of the Minions went for a fabulous walk to the village, where no one had been before - the Portse. It is located on the opposite bank of the river. To get into it, you need to climb to the Tengboche monastery, then descend 300 meters, cross the river and climb 300m again. There are practically no tourists in the village (it is far from all routes). But there are many mountain tours in the vicinity, musk deer, ulars, eagles are found here.

 In the evening, Alla Mishina from the Everest Masala Team group gave us a surprise - a festive dinner at home style: fried potatoes with onions, baked chicken with garlic, sauerkraut ... we were shocked ... pleasant.

Closer to night, we received news from Makalu base camp that Kristin Harila had arrived there. Now the fixing route will definitely  fast!

In the morning, I solemnly signed my new books with all the participants of our exp. (the first 10 copies were delivered to me from Moscow - thanks to Kristina for bringing them to Nepal).

Our participant Marina Gevorgyan was escorted to Kathmandu today. Her program "Touching the Makalu" has ended. But she promised to continue to pray for us. 

At lunch, we walked to the stupa above Tengboche and ran down to the soup that Alla had prepared. In the evening, she promises some kind of surprise for dinner ... tomorrow morning on May 12, we fly to BC Makalu. Most likely, this will be the plan.

 May 13 - preparation at the base camp (BC)

May 14 - move immediately to Camp 2

May 15 - climb to C3

May 16 - climb to C4

May 17 - summit and descent to C2

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal

 All namaste from the Letter U group! Today we spent the day at the lodge.  We adjusted our equipment, took what was missing at the rent office. Then we went to practice with jumars and ropes. We have mastered the technique of rope climbing. We will have a lot of them on the ascent. Then we learned how to use descent devices. After lunch, we did a workout on how to walk on ladders lying through cracks! There is a feeling that we are preparing for Everest, but no - this Island Peak is so interesting this year!
