I 2014 and 2015, I joined the team of Kobler & Partner (http://www.kobler-partner.ch/en-home.htmll). There was no indication at a young age that Kari once would be one of the leading organizers of eight thousand expeditions until the age of 23 when he got infected with the mountain virus because of a women. "Women," says Kari, "have always been path breaking in my life." Thus began his meteoric career: in 1985 he made the mountain guide diploma and gathered out the first experiences as an expedition leader. Until now, Kari has been expedition leader of over 100 expeditions in Asia and South America, among others, five-time ascent of Mount Everest (8850m) and twice to K2 (8611m). In the Himalayas he has summited many 8,000m peaks such as Broad Peak (8047m), Gasherbrum (8035m) Manaslu (8125m), Shisha Pangma (8012m) Cho Oyu (8201m) more than10 times Muztagh Ata (7546). Kari is today the most experienced and successful organizer of Mount Everest expeditions on the North Side.
