The results of Fyodorov Konyukhov's expedition on Ararat. A team of friends and relatives of Fyodor Konyukhov was assembled in the amount of 20 people. The goal is to climb the legendary biblical peak of Ararat (5165 m) and have a good time. Results: the ascent was completed by all participants, on August 19, 2021 at 9.00 the team stood on the top of Ararat with a full team. We started the assault in three groups to climb later all together, which was done. The time for sincere conversations, memories of past expeditions and discussion of new plans flies by unnoticed.

Alexander Abramov from Turkey: Greetings from Ararat! Today there  was a busy day. We left the hotel early in the morning to meet Ararat. On the way, we took our time and swam in Lake Van. In Dogubayazit, we changed the transport and went to the starting point. The trail is heavily eroded by the rains and now the route starts a little lower than before, right from the village. We gained a vertical kilometer during the day and came to the Base Camp at an altitude of 3200 m. In the evening, a cultural program was presented in the form of Kurdish folk songs and dances  And, of course, preparations were underway for tomorrow. Tomorrow is the day of acclimatization.

Anastasia Kuznetsova, guide and manager of the 7 Summits Club from Turkey: And again news from Ararat! The season continues! A team of guides Alex Abramov, Sergey Avtomonov and Anastasia Kuznetsova arrived in Turkey to complete preparations for the arrival of the next group. Tomorrow, a large team of Fyodor Konyukhov will arrive, which will have to climb the highest peak of Turkey, the legendary Ararat volcano (5165 m). The weather in Ararat is uncharacteristic this season, strong storms and rains are not uncommon for this summer. The team will be tested for strength. The flight from Istanbul to Van was slightly delayed and landed already during the enchanting sunset over Lake Van. The lake itself is akin to the wonder of the world, the largest soda lake in the world with a unique water composition.

We are waiting for the group tomorrow!

 

 

And yes, the Bosphorus and Istanbul from a bird's-eye view (and even higher) are also very good! A city of contrasts, east/west, a mixture of cultures and civilizations. This is a separate topic.

 For the first time we went to land in Van, flying through the city itself. We even saw the hotel where we are now located. They usually come in from the other side. It's also an interesting experience.

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Turkey:

Greetings from the slopes of Ararat!  Today there was a day of acclimatization. We climbed 4200 m to a high-altitude camp, from where tomorrow, according to the plan, we will go to the assault. The weather was favorable - the sun and a light breeze. Upon returning to the base camp at 3200, which already seems to be a resort, first there was hail (short), then rain with a rainbow and at the end of the storm with lead clouds passed by and disappeared behind Ararat.  After the descent, we prepared for tomorrow, crampons to the shoes, learned how to walk on crampons, passed a master class on tying shoelaces. At dinner, we tasted delicious dishes of Kurdish cuisine: juicy lamb, baked vegetables on coals, ayran, fresh vegetables. Your Boris Egorov and Anastasia Kuznetsova, with warm greetings from Turkey!
