Alexander Abramov, the leader of the expedition on Manaslu from base camp:

 News of the expedition "Manaslu 2017 - 7 Summits Club".

 

Today there  was a  nightmare night.  Wet snow  knocked down tents, broken the tent where Sherpas live, broken tent-sauna. Dr. Larin’s tent collapsed and crushed him with snow, so he thought that is an avalanche. All night we spentt, knocking the snow from  inside, dumping snow and save tents from destruction.

In the morning it was raining. But after breakfast  the sun was out and we were able to organize the Puja - opening  ceremony of the base camp. The tents are all restored. Our camp is a very comfortable. Tomorrow we will have training on ice. The next day - the first exit to the camp 1.

Maria Chelpanova shared impressions about climbing from themselves and their comrades. "Everything turned out well and the stars and the weather, which only pleased throughout the trip. And the guides were great! It was difficult, but well, we went up slowly, at your own pace".

 

And I cannot express all better than the words of the song of the Bremen town musicians.

 

There is nothing better in the whole world,

Than to roam with friends all over like [a] bird.

Those who've got friends aren't afraid of hassle,

Any road is dear to us gracile.

Any road is dear to us gracile.

 

We will not forget our true vocation,

We bring joy and laughter to the nation.

The enticing vaults of royal palace

Never will replace our freedom for us.

Never will replace our freedom for us.

 

Our carpet is a flower meadow,

Our walls are giant red pine tree growth.

Our roof's blue sky that's always there,

It's a bliss to live such joyful fate.

It's a bliss to live such joyful fate.

Diary of the expedition to Manaslu 2017 - the 7 summits Club.

 

Today morning started with the screaming on the street. At first I thought that there is always here in the morning. But when I got up and went outside, it was impossible to pass. The whole yard was crowded with porters, who fought for the right to carry our loads and loads of neighboring expeditions in the Base camp. After Breakfast we met Mingma and Zygmunt. They arrived by helicopter. Now the whole team  is together. And we went on acclimatization up the canyon - to the village of Samdo 3800m. On the way we saw yaks and DZO. Saw the Sherpas are building a new home. And how two Yaks are fighting…
