Thaki celebrates 8 years, time to summarize and evaluate these past years!
Anne Bialek is an experienced mountain climber who knows all the andean summits (do not hesitate to follow her adventures on her athlete Facebook Page !) and Jérôme Benassi is a field specialist who is able to organize any trip !
Engineer by training settled in the region of “le Luberon” in France, I was dreaming of distant and demanding expeditions… A nice picture of an andean summit in Bolivia led me to the andean cordillera before turning my 40 years. I was looking for my real path of life and was looking for a new impulse. Those snowy summits fascinated me and I was dreaming of climbing. I decided to change my life settling definitely in Bolivia in 2006 in order to live my passion.
In 2011, we created Thaki Travel Agency with Jérôme. For this time, I am climbing the andean mountains and feel alive …
I want to share with you my field experience concocting unique and special trips in order to delight the lovers of wide open spaces, mountaineers, hikers, trekkers and alpi-andinists…
My favorites : I think there are too many…, I have good memories of the Mountain Illimani, its south side and its integral crossing, the Janq’u Uyu, the north peak of the Illampu and the Huanacuni in the Apolobamba Cordillera.
For more information about her adventures, career and various ascents, discover Anne in a recent article published in the famous”American Alpine Journal”.
Near the end of my studies in 2002, I decided to travel throughout South Amercia. After Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Peru, I arrived in Bolivia…
The country’s authenticity, the kindness of the inhabitants and especially the person who become my wife push me to leave definitively France and to move to the Andes. After studies in Tourism in La Paz and various profesional experiences, I become to work as guide and enjoy sharing my passion for Bolivia.
Then, I worked as logistics officer in a french travel agency in la Paz and finally decided to fly on my own and to create with Anne : Thaki Travel Agency which reflects our values. Besides being your field specialist, I will introduce you with great pleasure in the heart of the andean world!
Thaki are men and women who support and enrich this beautiful team! These are
cultural guides, high mountain guides, muleteers, cooks, drivers that you will have the opportunity to discover during your stay in Bolivia!
