A team of Seven Summits Club members Alexander Orlov, Konstantin Zhelezov and Sergey Kofanov are leaving for Irkutsk tonight.

Their plan is to cover over 100 km of unpopulated expanses of the taiga on skis to visit lost taiga hamlets that are virtually cut off from modern civilization.

According to plan, the team is arriving in Irkutsk tomorrow and leaving for the taiga on the 12th, to be followed by a week-long autonomous ski expedition. Stay tuned for the news from the taiga backwaters!
