Kari Kobler Kobler & Partner GmbH, Switzerland In Kari’s early years you would never have thought that he would become a leading organiser of expeditions to eight-thousander peaks. When he was 23, he discovered his love for the mountains through a woman. In 1985, he qualified as a mountain guide and started gathering experience as an expedition leader while working for the University of Berne sports programme. Before that, his “natural habitat” was the local dance floors – and not the mountain tops all over the world! How great the difference is between that small leaflet containing the first tours and the current catalogue of his company “Kobler&Partner”, a business he started in 2001 with his partner Ruedi Kellerhals. Today Kari is in the fortunate position that he can actually make a living from guiding and organising expeditions, something he has always dreamt of. This is what makes him proud and it even outweighs the pride he feels after a successful ascent. If he is asked about the number of eight-thousanders he has climbed, Kari actually has to think and recount; seven eight-thousanders, three of which – including Mt. Everest – he summited twice. He is not just fascinated by the incomparable beauty of the mountains but also by the people he meets during his travels, be it paying guests, whom he supports to allow them fulfil their dreams, or the local people. To this day Kari enjoys his work – and a good dance from time to time!
