Now our team is already in Katmandu - during the preparation of the last things for our Kangchenjunga expedition. We plan to reach the summit in the middle of May by classical SW-face route. The Leader of expedition is Mr. Ilinskiy, also it include 7 other members. The weather in Tibetan plateau is still bad with snow falling - Mr. Ang Tshering Sherpa was in Lhasa and returned back yesterday. When he flew above the Himalayas he saw lots of snow. Tomorrow afternoon we provide a briefing in the ministry of tourism of the Nepal kingdom. Then we will start around evening to Taplejung by bus. From there our caravan will carry around 800 kg of expedition supplies until Base Camp (5600).
