Visited the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP. An incredible building. The dam is over 250 meters high. 10 units - huge water conduits lead to them, which can be clearly seen in the photo. Each unit is equal in capacity to the Dnieper Hydroelectric Power Station ... The generator itself is also huge - a turbine with a rotor weighs about 1500 tons and rotates at a speed of almost 3 revolutions per second! It is difficult to imagine this, but it looks like the weight of each turbine with a rotor is close to the weight of 2-3 electric trains in Moscow suburbs full with people. Each letter in the word...

Good news from Nepal! Local authorities decided to open country for tourists from 17th August. So we are starting to prepare again for trekking to Everest Base Camp through Gokyo Lakes. We are choosing flight options, and invite everyone to join us. We are still planning to walk into the Himalayas by the following route: Kathmandu - Lukla - Namche Bazar - Gokyo Lake (with an ascent to Gokyo Ri, 5,350m) - Cho la pass (5,450m) - Gorak Shep (with an ascent to Kalapattar, 5,620m) - Pass Kongma La (5 300m) - Tengboche - Namche Bazar - Lukla - Kathmandu.

We plan to spend the nights in lo...

I realized that I missed the Himalayas terribly. Therefore, after some thinking and without waiting for the best (or worst conditions), I bought tickets to Kathmandu for the May holidays.

I plan to go along the route to the base camp of Everest through Gokyo. This time I will try to collect a maximum of local legends and traditions, so that the trip will be even more eventful than usual. Legends will appear on this site and on Facebook. And of course, they will become part of the description of the Great Himalayan Trail.

So I decided in May to go to Gokyo and Khumbu. The route will be almost classic - flight to Lukla, further to the Gokyo Lakes (here, if I can move quickly, may be time to visit another lake located on the way to Chow Yu), then through Cho La pass to the Khumbu valley. Here in Khumbu I’m thinking of going along a new path: after climbing Kalapattar, returning not by the classical path, but through the Kongma La pass (5,535 m) to Chukung (and maybe even run into Chukung Ri).

Since everywhere on the route you can spend the night in houses, it's possible to refuse the service...

Сургут

And from our window you can see Lenin Street. In Surgut, wonderful weather. Snowy, but in the morning the temperature is +3, so it was damp. By night it got colder to -10. Now it’s dry, but very slippery.

Surgut was founded by Ermak, whose monument stands in the city center.

Well, I'm here for work: I speak at the first regional forum on financial literacy, which is being held at Surgut University today.

Kachenjunga or Makalu?

It's time to start thinking about treks for next year. I have a desire to go to Nepal in the spring: blooming rhododendrons, alpine meadows, spring Nepalese fruits and all that ... Since blooming rhododendrons are a good reason to go in the spring, you obviously need to choose the route where they are and where they are blooming.

I'm choosing between two routes - to the Makalu base camp (...

Прага

On the flight to Prague, I managed to beg a sit near the emergency exit again . This time I got three empty seats and fell asleep immediately after take-off. And everything was wonderful, but two questions torment me again : Why on the morning flight, when all the passengers want to sleep, does the flight attendant wake a sleeping person and offer him an incomprehensible Aeroflot sandwich? And for what do I need information about at what height an...
