The guide of the 7 Summits Club Svetlana Kotlyar reports from Papua New Guinea:

Less than two days have passed since I got to Papua New Guinea!  The route to the country of exotics is far from the easiest:  Moscow 🇷🇺- Abu Dhabi 🇦🇪 - Manila 🇵🇭 - Port Moresby 🇬🇳 - Mount Hagen ..

I haven't gotten this far yet, and I found out about the existence of the names of some cities from the list just a month ago. The last weeks of preparation have been stressful.  Sheets of correspondence with a partner, detailed discussion of the program, communication with participants, booking tickets, constant monitoring of covid rules at the docking points, waiting for a visa...

 It seemed that a little more and my eye would start twitching! Before the trip, I slept for three hours and, having finished collecting a 35-kg bag, moved to Sheremetyevo.  I remember the face of a nice girl Tatiana at the reception and her sincere surprise in her eyes: "Where is this?!"

Manila caused the most concern, which did not completely cancel the covid restrictions. I had to get my luggage, change the terminal, walk across the street and check in for the next flight. All these actions equated to a visit to the Philippines.  What happened in fact: at the exit of the plane, I was met by two nice girls with a sign with my name on it. They found my luggage themselves, helped me carry it, put me on a bus to another terminal, checked me in for the next flight!  And at the same time, in fact, they did not look at any documents, except for a visa to Papua!

 In Port Moresby, one meticulous aunt tried to remove the sausage from my trunk! But I said that we, tourists, in your Papuan mountains, there is definitely no way without it! Last domestic flight to Mount Hagen. Permitted baggage is 16 kg. The surcharge for the preponderance is around $ 60-70.

— Where are you from?

— From Russia. I'm going to Mount Hagen, tomorrow I'll meet the group and we'll go to the Giluve volcano!

They smile..

— There is no need to pay anything extra. Do you know where to go on a domestic flight? Let's take you out!

Papua New Guinea welcomed me so hospitably!

Tomorrow I meet a group and - let the adventures begin!

The guide of the group, the President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov reports from Mexico: 

The group of the 7 Summits Club moved to the base camp Orizaba.  Before leaving, we took a photo with our guides Julio and Katrina. On the way, we waited for our mountain to open. At first it was in the cloud. But then, we were lucky and Orizaba opened.  People often die on this mountain.  Steep ice slopes without gentle slopes. And at the bottom there is a stone scree.  There are years when there is clear ice on the route. But we are lucky. There is little ice on the mountain now. Mostly snow and firn.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Viktor Volodin reports from Nepal:

Chronology of the ascent of the "Upward Movement" group on Ama-Dablam.

 On October 27, the group left the base camp for Camp 1. The path is quite simple, but very long.  At first, he walks over simple mounds and hills, and then over rocks and not very steep slabs, we approach the first camp.

 October 28th. We leave the camp not very early. Mostly along fixed ropes on steep cliffs, we get to the second camp. It is located on a small rocky island, where there is very limited space for tents. We had to make room very much. The four of us spend the night, where everyone has stones sticking out under our backs. The night passed with great difficulties, but this did not stop us.  And on the morning of October 29, we go up to the camp 3. Also, we move along steep fixed ropes on rocks, ice, snow in full force to the third camp. It is located on a snow-ice “cushion”, tents stand well and horizontally. Here you can decompose well and stretch out to your full height. But there is one drawback - a strong wind is blowing, but this is not such a problem. We are resting.

 On October 30, in the morning, with a strong wind, but good visibility, we go up. Katya stays in the camp because she is not feeling very well. The path continues along the snow-ice wall and ridge. We are moving slowly, the height is already felt. And at 14.30 we reached the top, from where a wonderful and beautiful view of the Himalayan giants opens: Everest, Lhotse, Makalu is my dream,  with the Parago rib.  We take memorable pictures and after 15 minutes we begin the descent. Everything goes well and safely, we go down to camp 3. On October 31, we begin the descent to the base camp, everything is fine, everyone is happy . The base camp is waiting for us with good food, a shower and everything you need to continue life. Today we are going down to Kathmandu, to wash, to eat and to prepare for departure to the Homeland. Thank you for watching and worrying about us!

Alexander Abramov: In March 2023, the 7 Summits Club and our new project  8000.guide plans an international women's team expedition on the first conquered eight-thousand-meter Annapurna and shoot the film ""High-Altitude Gene -2".  The dates are March 20 - April 20, 2023.

I would like to invite women with experience of climbing 8000 meters to take part in this unique expedition. This expedition is funded by the participants themselves. The film is shot at the expense of sponsors.

 About this unique female expedition RD Studio and Valdis Pelsh are going to make a film "High-Altitude Gene -2".  We will shoot the whole expedition with professional equipment by professional operators, guides and participants. Like the first sensational TV series "High-Altitude Gene -1", we will shoot this film in the format of a Reality Show. Alexander Abramov will lead the expedition.

 The core staff of the team is already there. I invite new participants!

To prepare for the expedition on Annapurna, I invite the girls to take part in a training trip to the highest volcano in the World - Mount Ojos Del Salado in Chile. To get acquainted and see who is how prepared. After the training ascent, the final composition of the Annpurna team will be formed.
