 Shisha Pangma 2018. 12, 13, 14 day expeditions. Stay in the ABC.

 On Friday and Saturday, 21 and 22 September, the weather got a little worse, at night and sometimes in daytime it was snowing. This fact did not prevent us from actively exploring the surroundings of ABC: we went down to a lake and walked to the glacier.

 Today, Sunday, the weather is getting better. In the morning we held a Puja-a ceremony of consecration of the camp.

 We are preparing to make the second acclimatization rotation with overnight at Camp II at the height of 7100, we expect that ropes to be fixed. Today we plan to arrange a bath day.

 Despite the fact that our camp is almost at the height of Elbrus (5600), wild (feathered) life here is in full swing. Who croaks, who tweets, who whistles. Our Sirdar Nima lures next to her tent, mountain partridges snowcocks.  These are large poorly flying birds the size of a bigger chicken.  Now the snowcocks are running in herds around our camp, croaking and eating the remains of popcorn...
