Miri belongs to the pioneers of slacklining in the Czech Republic. She is among the leading personalities of the old-school generation of this sport.

She has a lot of experience in climbing and moving in the mountains. At present, she is one of the few Czech women who climbs eight-thousand-meter hills up to the death zone without the use of artificial oxygen.

Her paths crossed in 2014 with the mountaineer Honza “Tráva” Trávníček, who said about her, I quote: “Miri is a bigger “nut” than me…”

They have been on several 8,000-meter expeditions together, but so far Miri has had to end the ascents a little short of the summit every time.

In 2015, on Manaslu (8,163 m), she was one of the members of the party that rescued a French climber at a height of 7,400 m, for which she was later awarded a Fair play award by the Czech Olympic Committee.

In 2016, she was part of the team that helped the blind Honzo Říha climb the Tibetan Cho Oyu (8,201 m). Due to a virus, she ended the ascent at an altitude of 7,200 m.

The year 2018 once again belonged to Manaslu. They went on the expedition in a minimum number of 2 people. This year, for a change, the weather was not favorable and the ascent ended with Honza at an altitude of 7,600 m.

In 2019, the film-climbing project Expedition Ama Dablam (6,812 m)

For 2020, she and Honza were preparing a large Czech expedition to one of the most difficult 8,000 m Makalu (8,463 m). Czech Expedition Makalu 2020 has been postponed  due to the coronavirus epidemic.

Manaslu followed again in 2021 and 2022 and together they climbed to the top of Ama Dablam (6812 m)

In addition to expeditions, Miri and Tráva jointly organize treks and ascents to the “six thousand” peaks of Nepal, where, thanks to their experience and knowledge of conditions and terrain, they are popular guides.

Their next joint project with Subin Thakuri is the opening of a Czech center called Czech Pub in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu.
