And This is Africa, my friend!!! The unprecedented snowfall on Kilimanjaro! Unique photos and videos!

Unprecedented for March, the big snow can be not only in Moscow!  Groups of the 7 Summits Club were in the similar situation on Kilimanjaro. In cold conditions and zero visibility our members and guides tried to get to Uhuru peak. But not everyone succeeded! Someone managed to climb to the top and to descend back.  But some of our members was less fortunate. But, nevertheless, in these unrealistic for African conditions, our comrades managed to reach the edge of the crater - Gilmans point. Which is a great achievement! And they became witnesses a rare natural phenomenon in Tanzania-a snowstorm in Africa! Their good luck we can only envy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All-all people need to visit Lake of Baikal! Review of the winter journey

We got a review of the trip to Baikal from Mary Minaeva.

I would like to express my gratitude for the organized trip. It is indeed deservedly included in the list of the best tour on the planet. Your partners from Irkutsk also deserve all praise. We were the first group this year and all the roughness of the "pioneers" were imperceptibly smoothed for us.

 It is very difficult to convey all the emotions and impressions received during the trip, it is necessary to see with your own eyes.

Amazing, unforgettable, gorgeous, charming, impressive, divine, multifaceted, fabulous, soulful... this is only a small fraction of those epithets that should characterize this miracle. I hope that the photos will at least bring a little closer to those fantastic realities and take your breath away.

 Sincere gratitude and recommendations to all, all, all: at least once in my life to visit Lake Baikal.

The journey of our group under the leadership of Vladimir Kotlyar continues on the territory of the island of New Guinea, or Irian Jaya, as it is officially called. The team of four people made friends with the local "good inside" people, but it's time to do mountaineering. So now on the agenda – flight under the Pyramid Carstensz and climbing it.

 Watch and listen to Vladimir Kotlyar...

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  adventures of Russians in Papua begin!!!! We got to Jayapura after long and painful seats in planes and airports. The Papua met by the heat and the greenery. Such a contrast after the Russian frosty winter….

 This time we have made a special program – it starts immediately in the Papuans-cannibals, so that participants better acclimatize and get used to the world of Papuans.

Passed this stage, they will be admitted to the subsequent ascent to the highest point of Australia and Oceania - Pyramid Carstensz.

 Members of the expedition:

 Irina Zisman (great Amazon, recently returned from South America and Antarctica with Vinson and Aconcagua in his belt);

Irina - beauty Ambassador at the Seven Summits

 George Sadetsky (who has already climbed Everest and Vinson);

 Mikhail Kornev (just few days as ascended of Orizaba with Sergei Larin).

On March 2, Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko showed themselves to the St. Petersburg audience. At the invitation of our friends from the company "Red Fox" they performed in the store Planet Sport. The lecture was originally supposed to be dedicated to the speed record set by team Alpari, headed by Lyudmila Korobeshko in 2012. But Alexander Abramov at the last moment introduced the topic adjustments. "Seven Summits in seven weeks. The impossible is possible" - at first I thought that it was some kind of joke. But listen for yourself (in Russian):

On March 1th, the hall of the 7 summits Club was crowded. Our small room could barely accommodate all those wishing to attend one of the leading national authorities in mountaineering Ivan Dusharin. Vice-President of Federation of mountaineering of Russia, "Snow leopard", a three-time Everest climber, a writer, an outstanding organizer, a wise and sympathetic person.   The theme of his lecture: "The legendary ascent of the impregnable K2." In 1996, the team under his leadership, composed of Togliatti climbers and reinforced by several strong athletes from the regions of Russia, made a bold attempt to storm the second highest peak in the world. K2, or Chogori – mountain of beauty and treacherous, not every year it allow mountaineers to reach the summit. Here and that year it gave the mountaineers only a small chance. And for the success they paid an expensive price. You can learn all that from the recording of the lecture, which will appear on our youtube channel on Monday or a day later.

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide and Manager of Club 7 Vershin:

News from Tanzania, from the group of Nikolai Sokolov.  And some more information on the end of the season on Kilimanjaro.

 Yesterday on March 1th Nikolay Sokolov's group went down from the mountain and returned to civilization where they were waited by a shower, a festive dinner and pure warm bed. Everyone was tired, but satisfied and happy. According to them everything was cool, but suddenly hard!  On the slopes they had to work out in full, but immediately it is clear that all the efforts and careful preparation were not in vain.

 I would also like to note that for this season January / February 2018 (2 months!) with the 7 Summits Club, more than 100 people climbed the highest peak of the African continent!!!!

And HORROR! We even miss our bronze medals of the 7 Summits Club “For climbing Kilimanjaro”, which we sent to Tanzania for the upcoming season. We offer our deepest apologies in advance to the groups that have successfully reached the summit and are now going down for the imprudent mistake on our part. But, of course, all participants will be awarded.

Every climber will be invited to the ceremony in person!
