The FA Team continues to prove year after year they are a top expedition organizer & leader. 2019 was no different. Are you going into the Baltoro, up a Tibetan 8,000m route, or to a similar big mountain objective? If so, Furtenbach Adventures is a sound choice. The principles & standards FA deliver on make a significant experiential difference when you're on the mountain. My most recent FA climbing team enjoyed thorough pre-trip organizing/prep, amazing food quality through to the last moment of the trip, impressive camp infrastructure, and world-class guides. On top of that, their climber selection process yielded an incredibly strong team to which I was fortunate to join. Taken as a whole, the FA Team was one of the strongest on the mountain during the 2019 Everest season. I would not hesitate to choose Furtenbach Adventures for any high-consequence expedition in the future. Lukas is of course fantastic. The FA team members he surrounds himself with are also fantastic (e.g. Patricia, Luis, Rupert, FA's Makalu Posse, & more).
It has been a 5-week wonderful adventure on this superb and historical Everest north-east ridge. Views are amazing and climbing is of high interest on that route. A precise and secure organization is a key success factor in such an environnement and Lukas and the whole Furtenbach team are doing amazingly well at that exercise. Great memories!
The best package you can get for high altitude mountaineering and certainly on Everest. You get what you pay for. Expedition members can focus on the climbing, the rest is taken care of. Excellent food, great logistics, safety first, very strong sherpa team and highly professional, experienced and social guiding by Andreas and Kari.
