Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko in Peru climbed the peak of Maria and came up with a super program for the future!

Director of the 7 Summits Club Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Peru:

Greetings from Peru from Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko! Our exploration of the new program in Southern Peru continues! Yesterday we climbed a five-thousand-meter peak near Ausangate, not far from the Rainbow Mountains. The area is beautiful – there are a lot of colorful lakes along the way (there are “7 Lakes trek” here, but in reality there are much more lakes), sharp snow-capped summits rise around.
The peak of Maria with a height of 5500 is a simple to climb, but very beautiful. From the camp at 4500, the first 2-3 hours are a simple but extremely picturesque trek, then another 1.5-2 hours with crampons on a glacier with closed crevasses and the last pre-summit steep snow-ice slope. You go out on the top carefully (there are overhanging cornices) and are stunned by the beauty that opens up!
A couple of hours down – and you are greeted with lunch (in Peru, good service in the mountains – and tents are set up and a whole dining room is organized even for a small group), a couple more hours past the most beautiful lakes down – and you jump into hot springs, soak and restore muscles tired after a hike with a view of grazing alpacas and snow-white summits.
For the future, we decided that join a trekking in the Rainbow Mountains + a piece of trek around Ausangate + climbing Maria Peak with a descent to hot springs. It will be a super program!
