In Nepal, a new large expedition organized by the 7 Summits Club started a trekking route to the Everets base camp . Its name is "Everest-Lhotse 2021". For the 17th time, the goal of our expeditions is the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest (Chomolungma, Sagarmatha), whose height is 8848 meters. For the president of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov, this will be the 18th Everest climbing leadership. In terms of the quantity and quality of it , this is an achievement of the world order.

 

 

For the second time in history, the ascent will be made from the Southern, Nepalese side, along the Hillary-Tenzing route. The expedition started on April 11, and the summit assault is scheduled for the twentieth of May. Before that, there will be a cycle of acclimatization rotations, with an ascent on Lobuche Peak (6119m). For the participants of expedition, a comfortable base camp is prepared, providing all the conditions for a full rest. The route will be processed by the combined efforts of the expeditions  up to the summit. During the ascent, all participants and guides will use additional oxygen. Each participant will be assigned two high-altitude guides-porters, experienced Nepalese climbers.

 

 

 

 This year, for the first time, the team of the 7 Summits Club will climb the fourth highest peak in the World, Mount Lhotse (8516m). Acclimatization before the ascent and most of route coincides with the route of the Everest team. The final part is a straight, steep couloir, in which the ropes must be fixed. The head of the group, consisting mainly of climbers on Mount Everest, will be Lyudmila Korobeshko.

Yesterday, the 7 Summits Club hosted friends at our traditional party in the Sports Marathon Lecture Hall. The meeting was dedicated to the departure of our large expedition on Mount Everest and Lhotse. The hosts of the evening, the leaders of the company, and they are also the leaders of the expeditions, Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko warmly welcomed the audience. First of all, they told about the expedition and presented the participants of future ascents. Virtually, that is, on the screen, and live of those who were able to attend. The participants, in turn, very briefly shared what they wanted to convey to the public.

 

 

During the evening, the performances of famous climbers and participants of the 7 Summits Club expeditions were held in parallel with the communication in an informal atmosphere. The audience was addressed by: Viktor Volodin (with a story about the Russian eight-thousandth Lhotse Middle), Alexey Lonchinsky (about the Tamserku peak, for which he received the "The Golden Ice Axe"), Vladimir Kotlyar (who wandered a lot in the mountains of Nepal), Natalia Smirnova (about an unforgettable trip to Colombia). We should also note the parting words of cosmonaut and mountaineer Mikhail Kornienko. The Hero of Space handed Alexander Abramov the flag of the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center for lifting it to the Himalayan peaks.

 

 

At the end, a traditional auction was held, which was fun and gave pleasure not only to the lucky winners.

 Thank you to everyone who attended our party! Thank you to those who wished success to our expedition!

In 10 days, the main part of the expedition will go to Nepal for very serious climbs. Follow our news!

The 7 Summits Club is finalizing the formation of a team for 2021 Everest Climb. Our President Alexander Abramov  will lead an expedition to the world's highest mountain for the 19th time. Most likely, this is a world record! The main part of the group of climbers has long been known, since last year. We can say that the team will be quite large and diverse. Now there is still an opportunity to join it, as they say, "jump into the last car". Do not delay, as the deadline for issuing permits is running out! It should be noted that this year's expedition will have several distinctive features that make it more attractive for participants.

Features of the 2021 Everest expedition

 

**  We will climb from the South, from Nepal. Tibet will not be opened this spring. For those who went from the North, you can repeat, on a different, very different route. This is only the second expedition of the 7 Summits Club along the Southern Route, along the path of the first climbers, the legendary Hillary and Tenzing. And we can't say right now when we'll be back on this side of Mount Everest in the future.

 

**  Due to the pandemic, it is expected that there will be much fewer people than usual on the Everest trail and on the ascent itself. This is a rare chance on this route to get more natural emotions, not spoiled by the crowds of tourists and queues at difficult places during the ascent.

 

**  After a one-year break, the entire tourist infrastructure of Nepal will resume its work. All local residents, service workers, hoteliers, high-altitude porters and guides, all will be happy to see us in a special way. They will be more aware of the value of the guests and try even harder.

 

**  In the base camp and on a significant part of the route, the Everest expedition will work together with the 7 Summits Club expedition on Lhotse. There will be a lot of bright personalities in it, both among the guides and among the members. It will be a large and, we are sure, friendly team together.
