The first Czech woman to climb the three highest mountains on Earth.
She was born with a passion for the cause, curiosity, and a desire to discover – to live. She can sweep those around her off their feet with her spirit. But it's not merely the desire for adventure that drives her forward. It's the search for and discovery of the laws of our life, its meaning. Challenge is the word Klára lives by.
She climbed her first eight-thousander Cho Oyu in 2006 with Tashi Tenzing, grandson of the famous Tenzing Norgay. After climbing Mount Everest in 2007, Klára stood on the summits of two eight-thousanders in 2019 – the sacred Kanchenjunga and, not long after, the glamorous and ruthless K2, the world's second highest mountain. Her other summits include the continents’ highest mountains such as Aconcagua, Mount McKinley and Elbrus.
Klára is married and has a daughter named Emma and a son named Cyril.
