Vitaly Lazo: "Today, on April 24, a Puja ceremony (a ritual of receiving the blessing of the gods) took place at the Base Camp — a monk read prayers for more than an hour. Once upon a time I treated this with a laugh, but when ice discharges occurred near South Annapurna 15 years ago, in which several Koreans died, I began to throw rice towards the future path together with the Sherpas and say: "Om mane padme hum!".

Puja was held, sanctified, we can go to the mountain! Our group will go upstairs tonight. Plan: we go straight to Camp 2 at 6400. Overnight — and climb to Camp 3 at 7100, overnight. On April 27, maybe Anton Pugovkin and I will go higher — from Camp 3 to Camp 4, just one touch — and immediately descend to Base Camp.

Vanya Rodin and Anton Skripachenko will climb up to 6000 meters and immediately go down without spending the night. And Farit will be walking in the lower regions, in the BC area."

Masala Team news from Everest. In the morning it was snowing impenetrably. Nevertheless, the puja (opening, consecration of the camp) took place in any weather.

Lena invites everyone to the Bar where we spend most of our time. It's warm and there are board games. And a guitar. And music. And drinks to brighten up a snowy day. We have ice classes tomorrow.

Message from April 16.

On April 14, the DZF team arrived at the Everest Base Camp. The transfer from Lobuche to EBC took 4 hours. Yesterday we walked along the moraine on which the tent city is located — in fact, the base camp itself.  Our expedition takes place in cooperation with the 7 Summits Club and 8000 Club and that's what Vitaly Lazo tells about the first days in the camp: "The base camp of the 7 Summits Club is a delux level camp! This is the first time I rest under the route in such conditions. To say that I am surprised is to say nothing. Kitchen, recreation area, personal space — tents, sanitary zones, everything is thought out to the smallest detail. To do all this is a lot of work, experience and understanding of the pain points of the expedition participants. Alexa Abramov, bravo!"

 Today Vitaly Lazo and Anton Pugovkin conducted classes for our operators — they taught how to move in crampons, what is the ascent and descent of fixed ropes, and much more. And then we went towards Camp 1, through the Khumbu icefall. Beauty! The team reached the height of 5700 m and returned home to DC, where a 5-star lunch was waiting for everyone.

Dear friends, we are happy to share the news from Vitaly Lazo and his team, who are going to Mount Everest as part of the 7 Summits Club and 8000 Club groups!

 "Now drones not only fly away from us, but also... float away! Crash again — the FPV copter swam in the river. But Farit, sacrificing himself, caught the fugitive! Now we dry it — not Farit, but a drone — in a bag of rice)) Rice absorbs water well!

As a result, we spent 2 days in Namche Bazaar. We did not sit at home, and went to the neighboring village — Komjung. There we met a really interesting person, his name is Pemba Sherpa. He is 84 old and worked as a porter on the famous 1953 Everest expedition with Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary. It was a great shooting day!
Today we spent the night in Dibuche, and in the morning — a trek to the village of Periche (4370 m)”
