Reaching the summit of the Americas to this group was very special! Starting the year rediscovering the power of the will to accomplish something is rewarding! Finding loved ones, making new friends in the group and during the journey, being able to see and feel new landscapes are gifts that the Mountains and the days walking through them give us. Thanks, Max, Edu and Sebastian for the care, you made a difference to the achievement of the whole Group!
On 31st of January at exactly 2 pm in local time, it was when finally reached the summit of Aconcagua at height of 6,961 m (22,837 ft) after pushing for more than 7 hours of struggle in extreme conditions with strong winds and temperature as low as -35 °C in very low oxygen levels.
Although this was expected conditions at the top of the highest mountain in the world outside of Asia and the roof of the Americas enduring this, in reality, consumed everything I could physically and mentally give but in return gave me one of the best experiences in my life, something will stay with me forever. Storms were not only outside they were raging inside too, fear and hope, worry and determination, tears of both pain and joy. Eyes were focused on the next footstep while the mind was on the top.
No thanks will be enough for Maximo Kausch and his amazing team of Andes Specialists, a team you can trust with your life.
My endless appreciation for every single person in this amazing climbing group. Honestly, with you guys it became possible and turned into an unforgettable adventure, you guys rock and? it was my honor to get to know each one of you.
A Shout out to George Kalbin, Felix, Fabian Hugelshofer, Ryan Pyle, Jesse Rosenberg, Chad Ingraham, Caio Vilela, Kristen, Fiona, Kurt Schobesberger, Yan, and Quentin.
A special shout-out to the Brazilian team,❤️ the beating heart of this expedition who brought energy and warmth into the coldness of Aconcagua, your laughs will be always a sweet memory.??
THANK YOU all, It was like magic. – Mahmoud Amer
This was our second time with the company and the second time we only have great things to tell about it. Max honoured all his fame and reputation! Great trip guys!
A special thanks to guide Maximo Kausch and his team at Andes Specialists, who’s work on the mountain remains unparalleled. Incredible team of guides who managed to secure a summit push and success for many despite sub-par weather conditions with very strong winds. Guide Angel Armesto who was with me before the storm and made sure I received the proper acclimatization before attempting the summit for a second time, as without both a successful summit would not have been possible. Both guides that I hold in high regards and hope to climb with again. The climbing team who made this trip an unforgettable one; Ryan Pyle, Chad Ingraham, Jesse Rosenberg and Caio Vilela from Extreme treks, Mahmoud Amer and all the other people I have met on this journey, making it an unforgettable one.
We’re sure our expectations and goals were archived thanks to your great work!
Arriving to Rio’s airport, our guide Bruno asked me if I’ve liked the trip? If I liked? I was already a little depressed because the trip was finished! I wish it was longer!
Reach the summit of Licancabur, this beautiful volcano that dominates the landscape in San Pedro de Atacama, it was a very rewarding experience. A demanding climb, but it makes up for every step with its beautiful landscape and with the satisfaction of being on a great mountain. I thank the entire team for this experience, and I’m already looking forward to the next adventure.
The glacier school was above all my expectations. The guide’s experience and patient were fundamental for the final result: me reaching the summit of Huayna Potosi.
The course was the best possible introduction to high mountain. It brought me valuable knowledge, presented in theory and practice by the instructors. It made me feel safe to try new mountains on my own. Being on the mountain was sensational! We realise how small we are on this planet, but at the same time that we have the strength to overcome our limitations. Sometimes the journey isn’t easy, but every little moment of it makes it extraordinary and worthwhile.
I really enjoyed the course! I’ve recommended it to many people! I would love it even more if it lasted longer! I congratulate Max and Pedro for being so caring for our group! It is hard a team of guides so harmonious like you guys! And wait for me on the next expedition!
From up there, the joy of achievement is shared with the invitation of so many mountains on the horizon which call you for more challenges. Happily I take their invitation am I’m now climbing the way to my dreams. Inspired and confident from knowing that I have two great teachers. Thank you Max and Pedro for teaching me how to chase my dreams.
I’m very thankful, happy and willing to be part of another trip with you, great guides!! We loved the experience, both guides were very professional, respectful and extremely adaptable to any circumstances.
Everything was fantastic! Both Max and Edu are brilliant guys, very humble and super capable. We’ll surely be back for more trips. We are very pleased with the trip we had
The expedition was led very well by Max, Pedro and Edu. They were very responsible and caring with the whole team. They were always very precise on everything they did. The group was great! Nothing to complain about. I was very happy and satisfied.
Everything was perfect! I’ve even said that to Max. I felt quite a lot o progress from 3 years ago when I first went to one of his trips. From email answering, information, logistics and many other things.
I just want to thanks you for the fantastic experience I had on the Ojos Del Salada expédition on March 2016. Maximo and his team made a terrific job and help every one to reach his goal.
I would recommand his team To every one. Special thanks to his support for Bahia Iglesias.
The expedition to Ojos was very good indeed. Everything went as planned, it was well organised, fun and everyone had very high spirits and tuned with the mountain. I would come to another expedition like this and with this team at any time. I really recommend it to anyone!
The expedition was amazing. Landscapes were astonishing and all the expedition members were very nice too. These guys gave all the support I needed. Great trip!
The expedition was great. Friendly guides, with impeccable technical and emotional preparation. Unimpeachable organization. Can wait for a new adventure with you guys!
These 2-days in Cerro Penitentes were amazing in the environnement of Aconcagua and the Andes in general. Eduardo has been very professional, very reactive to my questions before and during the trek, very aware or my wellness. We had a very good time and I should recommend it for sure!.
The hike was great! Edu was a great guide, and Vinicius a great and very supportive assistant. Both warm, personable, professional, competent. They were particularly supportive of my son, who, at the age of 13, made it to the summit, in no small part thanks to them. I will never forget that.
Great organisation by the company! Food and logistics and also the brilliant itinerary. And all this together with the safety provided by the best guides. Simply perfect!
I thank the leader Maximo Kausch (his experience is outstanding) and all the staff for the privilege of having me on this achievement. It was above, well above, my expectations!
Once again I was very happy and renewed after going to the mountain with you guys again! Thank you for the great trip!
I want to thank Max, and the guides Edu and George for the amazing adventure we had on the trek do Aconcagua’s BC. It was great!
