Hi!  The day before yesterday we passed the pass Gondogoro-La, 5700 meters high. The pass is difficult. The approach from the Ali camp to the foot took 3 hours.  The weather was not very good - there was light snow. 

By the time we reached the saddle, it was about 5 am. The descent was also steep. We went down on fixed ropes.

We spent the night in the camp Khuspang at an altitude of 4600 meters.

The next day we passed one of the most beautiful passages to the village of Saicho. And today we are in Skardu.

The weather was good yesterday.  We were in the base camp K2 - visited the climbers memorial. We talked with the participants of the Japanese expedition, where 8 people reached the top of K2.  And as well we talked with members of the Ukrainian expedition to Gasherbrum. Then the weather got worse. Our group is now in the Concordia camp.  Everyone feels good, everyone is waiting for good weather to take more pictures.
