A native to the Austrian Alps, Andi lived more than 10 years in China, spending a sizable share of that time exploring its rugged south-west. In the early 2000s, he organized and led numerous expeditions and tours in the Tibetan regions and the surrounding ethnic melting pot. Later on, he revisited these areas from a different angle as a coordinator for policy research for China’s remote areas. He’s an outdoor enthusiast who has always really enjoyed showing his guests the unique magnificence of the Sino-Tibetan borderlands. It has been his dream to one day take his back-country skis to the Tibetan winter!
