Just a few days ago, an exclusive beer "Kilimanjaro. 7 Summits" was released. The idea of creating this beer was born during our New Year's expedition on Kilimanjaro. Sergey Vasiliev, a member of the expedition, collected magic grass from the slopes of Kilimanjaro for this purpose, as well as snow from the very top. The snow was brought by the guide of the 7 Summits Club – Andrey Berezin.

 

 

As a result, an interesting joint project of the 7 Summits Club and the Brewlok brewery turned out.

By the way, perhaps the beer line will be continued. In the near future, the brewer Sergey Vasiliev and his friends are going to the next peak of the 7 Volcanoes project - Demavend Peak (in Iran). In the fall, the Orizaba volcano (in Mexico) is planned, and there are other volcanoes just around the corner!

 

 

 

 

 

Kilimanjaro through the lens of a true master of photography. May ascent through the eyes of Alexey Lavrinenko

The May holidays were traditionally considered not the best time to climb Kilimanjaro. However, the last two years have proved that this is not the case, or is no longer the case. Perhaps something has changed in the weather, but the ascents of the 7 Summits Club team are just wonderful. Everything, including good weather and an equatorial rainstorm, was in abundance. And now is the best time to climb Kilimanjaro coming. Our summer is winter in Tanzania. It is dry period. Tanzania is one of the very few countries that has practically not restricted tourism due to the pandemic. There are no political or epidemiological risks, simple logistics, reliable service. A trip to Kilimanjaro is a great playground for photo artists. A variety of views, colors, moods, the contrast of tourists with the local population, and you can also add legendary animals on safari and the exoticism of Zanzibar. Get inspired by the photos of our May ascent participant Alexey Lavrinenko and join our regular groups!

News from Tanzania! Day 4 on Kilimanjaro. The 7 Summits Club  group passed the test and now we go further according to plan B. That is, we pass two transitions in a day, and spend the night in the camp of Barafu at 4600 m. Next, according to the plan, the transition to the camp of Kosovo at 4800 and the assault on the summit. We started today from Barranco Camp, one of the most beautiful in Kilimanjaro. At night at the foot the city of Moshi twinkled and the stars shone, and in the morning opened a view of the entire massive of Kilimanjaro. We were able to walk along the Barranco wall in good weather and as soon as we climbed the wall, it started to drizzle. Then we enjoyed the beauty of the Karangu Valley and in the late afternoon we went up to Barafu, which means "snow camp"in Swahili. Hello and warm hugs from sunny Tanzania!

Anastasia Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Tanzania: News from Kilimanjaro. The third day on the route. Today it was one of the key days - the acclimatization ascent on the Lava Tower, 4600 m. In the morning, a rainbow appeared over the camp. As usual, we considered this a good sign. It was about 15 minutes, then the traditional rain began to fall, which accompanied the entire ascent and acclimatization on the Lava Tower. There, during lunch, we realized that we are higher than the second peak of Tanzania, Mount Meru (4550 m), higher than the highest peak in North Africa, Tubkal (4167 m) and comparable to the height of Mont Blanc. The descent also began in the rain, the road turned into a riverbed with many waterfalls and streams. But before entering the Baranko camp, fragments of the blue sky first appeared, and then the entire valley of insane beauty opened up as a reward for passing the stage. In the evening, at the Barranco camp at 3960 meters, we met the sunset, and at night at the foot of the Moshi lights shone and the stars shone. It was majestic! We've been waiting for this for so long!

Acclimatization takes place in the normal mode. In general, everything is fine.

Tomorrow we will have to overcome the 300-meter Barranco wall. We embrace everyone!

Sergey Larin,  the guide of the group from Tanzania: The “Siafu” team news. Today, February 15, we moved from Camp Shira to Camp Baranko 4000m, via Lava Tower (4600m). There was lunch on Lava Taur. And after lunch, it rained heavily again. We went down to the Baranko camp along the rain rivers.  The descent reminded me of Papua New Guinea at times. I couldn’t remember such rains on Kilimanjaro.  I've never been here during the rainy season, though. Kilimanjaro is covered in snow. If this goes on, you'll see that the glaciers will recover.

Sergey Larin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  The group of the 7 Summits Club "Siafu" climbed yesterday to the Machame camp at an altitude of 2900 m. It rained all day, which was according the forecast. And quite unusual for February. At this time of year, I don't remember it raining  from the morning. But the rain did not affect the mood of the group. I am also glad that there are only three people on the route besides us. Which is also unusual for the peak of season. Today, 14.02, we continue to move to the Shira camp at an altitude of 3900 meters.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Tanzania:

January 7. Today, our group made a heroic trek from Camp Shira 3800 via Lava Tower 4650 to Camp Barranco 3950. This transition took about 9 hours and was not easy for our team. It's a good thing there wasn't a downpour like yesterday. But it was cold, windy, and foggy. The weather does not favor us yet. The most unpleasant thing is that on our night of climbing from 9 to 10 January, according to the forecast, it will be some terrible snowfall. Today we spend the night under the Barranco wall, tomorrow we will climb it and continue to the Karanga camp on 4100. And then - according to the situation.

Today, after a long transition and a large climb, many people have headaches. We decided to sleep longer tomorrow morning and recover.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and guide of the group, from Tanzania: Hello to all from the slopes of Kilimanjaro! Today, on January 4, my group arrived - 9 members. Since we had a free afternoon, we decided to spend time usefully and went to the waterfall Materuni. The trip was very informative and intensive. First, a half-hour walk to the beautiful waterfall with a height of 98 meters, which originates from the glaciers of Kilimanjaro. Then we went to a nearby village, where we were first served a very tasty village lunch. And then we went to the coffee plantations and did the process of making coffee on our own, from picking the beans and peeling them from the skins to roasting, grinding and brewing. All this was  made with dancing and songs in Swahili!!!

Tomorrow early morning we go on our climbing route - Machame. The first night will be in one step at 3000m. The forecast promises rains every day. We are getting ready - we take scuba gear with us!
