Hans Kammerlander

One of the best mountaineers of the world has his roots in Acereto (Ahornach) in the Valle Aurina valley.

Who can say of himself that he has climbed the Mount Everest (8,848 m asl.) and descended on skis? Or having climbed the famous Matterhorn on various routes for four times within 24 hours? Not many…. except Hans Kammerlander.

Hans Kammerlander was born on the 6th of December 1956 in Acereto in the Valle Aurina valley as the last of 6 children. Already as a child he was fascinated by the high summits in the Valle Aurina valley and followed tourists on the Picco Palù, a three-thousand metre high peak, when he was a boy.
In 1974 he had climbed the peak of the Matterhorn and the Monte Bianco and conquered the notorious north face of the Eiger. 1979, together with his friend Reinhold Messer – also a world-famous mountaineer – he founded the South Tyrolean Mountain School. Together with his friend he climbed the Cho Oyu (8,202 m a.s.l.) in the Himalayas between Nepal and Tibet.

In the subsequent years the two extreme mountain climbers conquered 6 further summits of the highest category. Particularly notable is the traverse of the Gasherbrum II and Gasherbrum I (Hidden Peak) in alpine style.

Further eight-thousanders followed, as the Annapurna, Makalu and Nanga Parbat. In total, Hans Kammerlander can show thirteen eight-thousanders. Also worth mentioning are his 50 first ascents.

In his lectures and multivision shows, Hans Kammerlander let us participate in his adventures and enthrals a wide audience frequently. Also a hike with the famous mountaineer is a special experience.
