Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:
Hello, Friends! The group of the 7 Summits Club "Lhotse 8516" began its movement to the base camp. We arrived by helicopter in the village of Phakding (2600m. n. m.). Slowly, in two hours, we reached the village of Monjo (2860 m). We were lucky with the weather, we managed to accommodate in a comfortable loggia before the rain. Along the way, we saw Mount Tamserku, a beautiful mountain with a height of 6680 m. Our guide Alexey Lonchinsky received the "Golden Ice Axe", the most prestigious award in mountaineering, for climbing it.
