Guide and manager of the 7 Summits Club Anastasia Kuznetsova reports from Iran:
Greetings from Iran! Our team continues the process of acclimatization, getting closer and closer to the Damavand. Today we have studied the infrastructure of the local ski resort Tochal (And yes! There are ski resorts in Iran). We took the cable car to the Tochal pass up to 3700 m, then went down on it to our hotel at 3600 m.
We rested a little and continued acclimatization, climbed to the top of Mount Shah Neshin (3900), checked the equipment. At the summit, we launched a kite (a record application from Viktor Alexandrov), met a local fox cub.
Before dinner, we conducted a breathing practice and fixed acclimatization. We discussed our plans for tomorrow and finished the day with backgammon and chess games. Friendship won, of course!
