    He is one of the world’s most renowned Himalayan climbers. A mountaineer, alpinist, and Tatra Mountains climber, he is the fifth person in the world to have conquered the Crown of the Himalayas – all 14 of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks. Krzysztof shares his experiences and lessons learned from numerous perilous expeditions through lectures and speeches, supporting employees of both small and large business organizations, public institutions, and private audiences.

In October 2018, together with Reinhold Messner, he received the prestigious Princess of Asturias Award in the field of sports, often referred to as the Spanish Nobel Prize.

    Krzysztof Wielicki participated in four expeditions to K2. He approached these expeditions in a pioneering style, making the first winter ascents of Mount Everest, Kangchenjunga, and Lhotse.

He solo climbed Broad Peak in a single day, marking the world’s first ascent of an 8,000-meter peak within 24 hours. He also climbed Dhaulagiri and Shisha Pangma solo, charting new routes.
