This was a fantastic mountain experience and I would definitely recommend K&P together with its local partners in Ecuador (Andean Summit Adventure) for this or similar projects in Ecuador. I have done several other mountain projects / expeditions in the past with different tour operators and this was without any doubt the best so far. The program was diverse (mountain & a bit of culture) and well thought-through with an excellent acclimatisation strategy. There was always sufficient food and water/tea/coffee available, accommodation in huts/tents (on the mountain) and hotels / local families was really comfortable (with regular opportunities to take a shower^^), and logistics were easy. Besides a very professional & experienced, socially competent and dedicated mountain guide from Austria (Andreas Neuschmid), we were accompanied by two professional local Ecuadorian mountain guides and climbed in groups of three people in a rope team (1 guide + 2 guests). This allowed for optimal security and support on the mountain. Overall the quality of this trip was outstanding and for me it was definitely worth the bit of higher initial cost overall (as compared to other tour operators). It is likely that I will book my future mountain projects through Kobler & Partner again. Thanks to the entire team!
From start to finish this was an awesome trip,professionally led to a very high level.Very experinced guides and HAP porters making this trip for me feel very safe .It takes a lot organisation to deliver to a high standard but K&P have the experince and contacts .Fantastic! where do we go next !
Exceeded my expectations in all fronts. Food, equipment, support staff, guiding, experience and personal attention were fantastic. We were a large group but everything was very personal and always felt safe and well considered. K&P led the route in Broad Peak and was the reference in base camp.
The best package you can get for high altitude mountaineering and certainly on Everest. You get what you pay for. Expedition members can focus on the climbing, the rest is taken care of. Excellent food, great logistics, safety first, very strong sherpa team and highly professional, experienced and social guiding by Andreas and Kari.
Very professionally led expedition. The quality of the service was not impeded by the fairly large number of members. We were lucky weatherwise, but even if the weather had been terrible I would have had fun...
The expedition worked out perfect, starting from reception at Kathmandu Airport to rebooking flights at the end. Guide Andreas Neuschmied puts safety first, is highly experienced and very summit focused. He wants to get his clients up there. Sherpas amongst the best that you can find. Never anything was missing in BC. BC crew very helpful. Sherpa team always worked together. Personal sherpas very focused on the client. For me a great experience, to be repeated, Till
Broad Peak with Kobler & Partner was a great trip. It was very well organised, the mountain guide was fantastic - very experienced but also great with the team. Wonderful Sherpas and Pakistani HAPs. Through and through a great experience
