Hi Chong Lay Lin,

please check this Elbrus FAQ as well, about gear, flights etc.

As you can read there the internal flight between Moscow and the Caucasus is included in our packages, whicairlines flies from your place to Moscow I don't know but you can ask that to any local travel agent or check online.

Concerning the internal flight in Moscow, the agency we book through will help us book that flight. The cost for the internal flight in 190 Euros.

The cost for the trip we are going on depends on if we go with the guided tour that Pilgrim Tours have, then it will be around 800 Euros, or if we buy their Lite Package and go ourselves up the mountain. Then it will be a lot cheaper.

Also concerning your gear list I think it looks pretty good. I never been there before but I have read the gear list on Pilgrim Tours and they recommend the same stuff basically with one BIG difference, the sleeping bag. You don't need a -20 sleeping bag IF we go with the guided group but if we go alone it will come in handy! If we go guided you only need a +-0 sleeping bag.

Do you really need to have a harness, carabiners, etc. with you?? I'm not much of a mountaineer (yet  ;) ) but that gear just seems unnecessary. Am I right?

You don't strictly NEED them unless there's a problem or you're on a big route up the peak. i brought harness, krabs etc with me when I went in 2002. And our guides did bring ropes - i think it was just in the event of things going tits up and us coming down the wrong way. As it happened a dreadful storm enshrouded us and that could easily have happened but we navigated down through the whiteout and got on to the regular route so still didn't need them.

Hey everyone,

I'm almost finished with the website now. I had to do some alterations which took a little longer then I had thought at first.

The people on my mailinglist for the "expedition" will get the URL for the website tomorrow. Please take a look at your own profile there and write down an email to me to fill in the blanks.

The website for the expedition is now up and running. More members will be added shortly as there are several more people that expressed interest in joining the group.

Also most of the pages are not working as of now. The only ones that are is the member pages. The other pages will be added and finished within the next coming days!

Cheers,

Buddha

Of course we want you to come along Mari! You are listed among the members on the website. The reason you haven't received an e-mail since the first mail is because that is the only mail I've sent out! :)

One more will come during the weekend!

Ok... :) Is the date set already? Will the expedition be guided or unguided? I have to admit that the lite package cost sounds better than the other...

Mari, no date set yet. I hope that we all can agree on a date. Unguided would be best in order to save money. I know for me that I can sure go as cheap as possible. Don't mind sleeping in tents and making my own meals.
For me the Lite-package sounds better as well!

I'm good with any date after 01.06.2004. Sleeping in tents etc. sounds ok...I'm an expert in budget travelling  ;)

Er - you'd better be sure of the experience of all those who will definitely be climbing with you if that's what you're planning. Elbrus may be technically straight forward but it can be extremely deadly too...

You need to be sure of whoever's in your group
