My name is Taras, I am the founder and leader of the tourist club "Kuluar", and at the same time I am a guide for some programs.
I must say that I am very lucky with the groups. After all, all my hikes have a friendly atmosphere. Always interesting people who have been many places, and who are very interesting to listen to. Always willing to help with cooking and setting up camp more than necessary.
On the trails we can walk in silence, just enjoying the beauty and thinking about our own things. Or we can play games and tell stories. Depends on the mood and the terrain. Unfortunately, in most of the programs I run, you can't have a campfire in the evening. Either it's forbidden, or there's simply nothing to burn. But you can admire the starry sky above the 8,000 meter peaks or swim in the hot springs and watch the clouds roll in over the colored mountains. It's not a bad substitute.
After the successful ascent of Everest, I set myself the next big goal - to climb all 14 eight-thousanders in the world.
At the moment (winter 2019) I have three of the highest peaks - Everest (8848 m), Cho Oyu (8201 m), and Manaslu (8167 m).
And in the summer Nikita and I will go to Pakistan, to one of the most dangerous peaks of the world - K2 (8611m).
I make lots of videos from every expedition and I upload them to my YouTube: Taras Pozdnii: Goal 14х8000. Sign up, I promise you, there will be a lot of unique content.
Sometimes I am bored with the role of guide and several times a year I lead my own groups.

A video greeting from the teamleader
What was - a little bit of history
I started hiking at an early age - my parents, mountain climbers, dragged me and my sister wherever they could. My first real hike in the Carpathians I went when I was 9 years old. Then we climbed Veliky Verkh, Stoy, and we ate a lot of blueberries. And then I started - 3-4 hikes every year. I must say, that I didn't really like to go hiking as a kid - well, what normal child would like to carry a huge backpack and get wet from sweat or rain? After all, at the same time I could play ball in the yard with friends! But no, my parents were persistent and I couldn't get away from the trips. As time went on, I started to get a real thrill out of camping! And, oddly enough, I realized one simple thing - the more difficult the route, the worse the weather and the more assholes you got - the cooler it is! After all, it is these moments you can tell about them with gusto to all your friends and acquaintances. Those are the moments you are most proud of. Once I understood this simple thing, I learned to enjoy every moment in the mountains, and my parents did not have to force me. I myself began to gather groups of friends and their acquaintances and conduct hikes.
After graduating from the KPI I realized that trekking is my life's work, that I don't want to do anything else, so I created "Kuluar", a brainchild in which I put all my heart and soul. We are developing intensively, constantly adding new regions and routes. We want to be the best and we try to do everything to achieve this. The world is so big and beautiful - and we'll show you all of it:).
Besides hiking I am fond of acrobatics, capoeira, fishing, mountain skiing, sites and of course exotic travel.
Kuluar - your life-changing mountain experience!

If you still have doubts whether to go to the mountains, then you should go with Kuluar! After much hesitation, this was my first serious hike with my 60-year-old father (yes, yes, as it turns out, the mountains are humble to all ages). Wonderful organization of the Mardi Himal trek in Nepal, with the jungle, rhododendron forests, and the tops of the magical Machapuchare and South Annapurna. Unforgettable experience, cozy evenings, professional approach with attention to every tourist and every detail from the incredible guide - Taras Late. So leave your doubts behind and into the mountains with Kuluar!
"Saving money for memories" - since my student years, these words of the Dagestani poet Rasul Gamzatov have fallen into my soul. And the name of the hiking club "Kuluar" evokes in me only associations with high, serious mountains (perhaps, because that was the name of our climbing section at the university).
