Tae Sun Kang does this name ring a bell in your ears? No – so let us explain:
South Korea is the NUMBER ONE nation worldwide with the most climbers having completed the 14 8000 peaks. 6 Koreans have climbed all 14 8000 peaks (84 8000 peaks), and are still alive. That ALL of them used Valandre down equipment, is not as interesting to know, as who was behind this. Tae sun Kang has been the driving force behind all these successful 8000m peak climbs, and is now President of honor of the Korean Alpine Federation Seoul section. Some have the privilege and joy to summit, others have the privilege of making it possible, and Tae sun Kang is one of them. So we are friends President Kang and I.
