Yesterday, the the 7 summits Club welcomed a guest. Artist, Vice-President of the Union of Russian Abstractionist, Anastasia Dobrovolskaya brought her picture painted on the edge of the crater of the highest volcano of Africa – Kilimanjaro.

 

 

 Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - it was the first climbing experience Anastasia. And there, in Africa, the idea of a large project called "Seven paintings in seven highest peaks in the world". Anastasia plans to climb all Seven summits and to do what did no one in the world. That is, to bring down the finished new painting.

 

We wish Nastya good luck in the project! Diary of her travels in Tanzania and the history of painting on top of Kilimanjaro, has recently been published on our website. On further expeditions and plans we will also keep you up to date...

We are at the top. This is 1st summit (Gillmans Point) - 5685 meters. We stay... we drank tea, ate chocolate and biscuits. We must go further. Close to 2-th summit, all stopped and no one could go far. We began to breathe artificial oxygen from the tank. The tour guide said that when we get to 3rd  summit, he will allow not more than 10 minutes to be there.

I have joined the brain. To write a painting I  need 30-40 minutes, and in the current situation and all 45. I decided to sit right here on the rocks, please oil on canvas and palette knife. With me remains husband and 2 porters. The rest of the group goes on... I begin to paint. My Head's not straight, the colors - in the pile, Kilimanjaro is not given.

After 20 minutes, the image of the mountain appears. The guides help keep the folder and the canvas serves paint and sincerely amazed at how the canvas it appeared - Kilimanjaro))))

 

 

It took 40 minutes and all my power, which I need to remain for the descent…

 The leader of the expedition of the Kazakh Geographical society Magjan Sagimbayev:

After a successful ascent to Kilimanjaro, the group went on a Safari through the parks of Tanzania. We visited the valley of the Tarangire river, which is famous for its baobab trees and elephants. As well as a unique place "lost world" of Ngorongoro crater, which many are calling the "eighth wonder of the world".

 We met almost all the inhabitants of the national Park, except rhinos. Obiageli real drama of the Safari, the match between lions and buffaloes. Was a little taken aback by the size of Ngorongoro crater. Who would have thought that there exists a small world for animals.

 Just for the sake of the Safari was to go to Tanzania! Very cool!

News Kilimanjaro from Magjan Sagimbayev. The group has already returned home. Everybody will be happy. Now you only have to remember how it was and choose a new vertex.

 Almost verbatim from Magjan:

 "Everything went super. There was the little moments with mountain sickness, but the tour guides did a good job. 11 people went up, happy pants! )

 The hotels we stayed - excellent! The team was well rested.

  Unfortunately, on top our group failed to take a picture because the group split up, someone faster, someone slower.

 But in general, all people are happy and satisfied with the entire program! Thank you (7 summits Club)!

 The group from Volgograd 11 people, including children, climbed to the highest peak of Africa in February 2017. They traveled on a seven-day version of the Machame route. And although it was not easy, the impressions were the most vivid and positive. This is a note of their leader Stanislav Vinnikov.

 

ALL PHOTOS CAN BE WATCH HERE

 

So our journey began. In a light T-shirt, in the middle of lush greenery

 

 

This effect is called "shyness of crowns," when trees, despite the thickness of the forest, do not touch the crowns, forming mysterious drawings on the foliage.

 

 

There are even palm trees (or rather, dendrikestones) in the form of a heart. It is immediately evident that Kilimanjaro loves us

Conclusions. I am often asked "why?". Why are you going to the mountains?

 

 

 

 

 

Continuation of travel around Tanzania, safari, visiting the Maasai.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Mom - they are in Africa, Mom!

Goodbye, Kilimanjaro! The goal is made, thank you all!
