From Home to Everest in only 3 weeks? Furtenbach Adventures makes it possible. The preparation time for this expedition across the south side of Everest already takes place at home. While the normal Everest expedition takes almost about two months, the Flash Expedition saves time and also increases security and success chances.
Our Flash Expeditions will fundamentally change the world of high-altitude mountaineering! As less time is spent in basecamp and the associated acclimatisation time on the mountain is reduced, the risk of illness is minimised due to the increased Risk of getting infections at basecamp. The Flash Expedition is also more Energy-saving, as the many ascents and descents around Mount Everest for acclimatisation are no longer necessary.
To maximise chances of success, the participants of the expedition sleep in a hypoxia tent for 6-8 weeks before the start of the journey, in which the Body is getting acclimatised to an altitude equivalent to a height of 7000m.
Furtenbach Adventures has more than 15 years experience in the use of hypoxia systems for pre-acclimatisation in high-altitude mountaineering. The first expedition was carried out in 2016, during which all participants were preacclimatised in a hypoxia tent. In shortest time you’ll get acclimatised in Himalaya and have a higher efficency – Ready for the summit ascent! This also increases security in Himalaya. Already in 2018 and 2019 Flash Expeditions were carried out on the North side with 100% success.
This innovative pre-acclimatization, combined with a small group, maximum oxygen support, best equipment and an experienced team by your site make the Flash Expedition so successful in only 3 weeks.
Furtenbach Adventures is the only organizer who achieves such a short expedition duration by also minimising Risk. Through our modern expedition preparation we change the world of high-altitude mountaineering.
The Everest Flash Expedition is now also offered on the south side at the same time than the Evererst North Flash Expedition. In preparation you climb the summit Island Peak (6189m) and reach the basecamp of Mount Everest. The sherpas set up the high camps and oxygen depots in advance. As soon as the weather window fits, the summit ascent can begin.
Summit Oxygen is the latest, lightest and most reliable Oxygen System. Our participants recieve special regulators that were developed just for us and deliver more oxygen than conventional regulators. This alows flow rates up to 8L / minute. Oxygen is available to all participants at ABC (6400m) and from the North Col at 7000m.
The entire oxygen System is carried completley redudantly for each participant and deposited on the mountain. For each participants at least 2 Sherpas come, in order to be able to compensate Default and transport a high amount of oxygen.
