Everest Expedition

We are the first and only operator to offer Everest simultaneously from both the north and the south – and as a Flash™ or Classic Expedition. Thus, everyone can choose the best option for themselves. But no matter which option you choose – with the highest possible safety and quality standards and the comforting certainty of entrusting yourself to a licensed, strictly audited, Austrian expedition operator with many years of 100% success rate and “zero accident” statistics, you have already made the right choice.

Our participants arrive at the mountain better acclimatized because they have already started acclimatization at home 4-8 weeks before the expedition. The complete altitude generator equipment including training plan and guidance by an expert is included in the price and will be delivered to your home and picked up again afterwards. You don’t have to worry about anything. No other operator has as many years of experience with pre-acclimatization using hypoxia systems.

We bring some of the most comfortable base camp equipment Everest has ever seen.

Our team also includes a professional kitchen staff that provides a level of catering you would not expect to find in a base camp on a glacial moraine at the end of the world.

Our Everest North Expedition is the objectively safest ascent of Mount Everest. The route leads from the north of Tibet via North Col and Northeast Ridge to the summit of Everest. Base Camp on the north side is accessible by an access road, offering participants a much more luxurious and comfortable stay. The Northeast Ridge Route, as it is also known, has a long and mysterious history. Walk in the footsteps of the earliest Everest climbing attempts in the 1920s and 1930s. The northern route is particularly famous for the failed 1924 British expedition of George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. To this day, it is not known whether their team made it to the summit a full 29 years before Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. On this route, our expedition members experience the history of Everest climbs since their beginnings. The Everest North route is technically more demanding than the alternative in the south and participants are exposed to wind and cold much longer during the climb. In return, however, the summit day is less demanding in terms of fitness due to the higher altitude of the last camp. Another point of interest: Due to the severely limited number of permits, Everest's north side is much less visited these days. So if you want to take in the unique atmosphere undisturbed on the way to the summit, the North route is definitely the right choice. If you choose the Classic version of our North Expedition, you will have the advantage of enjoying your time on the mountain to the fullest. The expedition lasts about 6 weeks and gives you the opportunity to acclimatize better, guaranteeing a much safer and less exhausting ascent.

Our South Expedition takes you from Nepal across the Khumbu Icefall, the Lhotse Flank and the Southeast Ridge. The South route is the ever-popular classic Everest climb. It is this route that led Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay successfully to the summit in 1953, the first team in the world to do so. Since that first ascent, thousands of adventure seekers from all over the world have chosen the southern route to follow in their footsteps. The entire route from base camp is longer on the south side of Everest, and because of the slightly lower final camp, the day of the summit ascent is more demanding in terms of fitness. To compensate, the south route is overall less technically demanding and provides expedition members with shelter from the elements for longer periods of time. One of the biggest differences from the northern route is the climb across the Khumbu Icefall. This section of ice and snow, several hundred meters high, is part of the Khumbu Glacier, the highest glacier in the world. The climb requires constant attention and strength in this first section due to the crevasses, but the beauty of the frozen landscape helps overcome all the hardships. The greater popularity of the southern route also means potential crowding at certain points on the ascent. In contrast to the north route, the beginning of the technically easier south route is a bit more touristy by Everest standards. But this does not have to be a disadvantage. On the contrary, the base camp on the south side offers you the opportunity to meet enthusiastic climbers and adventurers from all over the world, especially during the peak season. Thus, the expedition becomes more than a mere spectacle of nature. If you want to share the experience of climbing Everest with like-minded people and make friends for life in an extreme situation, the southern route is guaranteed to be the right choice.

Which route should I choose – NORTH or SOUTH?

The two “normal routes” up to the top of Everest offer each certain advantages, but each also carries risks and challenges. Ultimately, it should be a considered decision whether to attempt the climb from the north from Tibet via the North Col and Northeast Ridge or from the south from Nepal via the Khumbu Icefall, Lhotse Face and Southeast Ridge.

In many cases, there will be individual arguments for one side or the other, depending on each participant’s experience, personality, climbing intent. You may have more sympathy for one side, it has more appeal, or you may see it as the more beautiful line.

Listen to your intuition, which is always the best advisor in such decisions, or let us advise you personally!

North South
+ objectively safest ascent

+ last camp is higher (8300m) therefore
shorter summit day

+ more comfortable and luxurious basecamp thanks to road access

+ max. of 200 permits per year – which means less climbers

– ascent longer exposed to wind and cold temperatures

– technically more demanding in the last third, more rock

– descent from summit more difficult

+ technically easier and longer climb possible in the slipstream

+ possibility of descent to 4000m for better regeneration before the summit push

+ double expedition with Lhotse possible

– more climbers, thus danger of congestion in the icefall, the Lhotse Face and on the summit ridge

– last camp at 8000m, therefore longer and more strenuous summit day

– total ascent from base camp a little longer and therefore more demanding on physical condition


Which expedition suits me CLASSIC or FLASH?

The main reason for failed ascents of an 8,000 meter peak is the long acclimatization period on the mountain. The multiple and sometimes dangerous and tiring ascents and descents and the risk of infection at base camp, where many people are in close quarters, saps the strength of many climbers before the actual climb has even begun. So why acclimatize at base camp when you can do it at home in your own four walls, significantly increase the success of the expedition, and greatly shorten the duration of the expedition?

Experience altitude acclimatization in a new way! Get used to the low-oxygen high-altitude air – from the comfort of your own home and with the long-standing know-how of our experts. For a shortened expedition duration, more performance as well as higher chances of success and efficiency on the mountain.

Through hypoxic training, altitudes of up to 7,000m can be simulated. This way you will be pre-acclimatized for your upcoming expedition in a highly efficient and individual way and will be able to reach your summit goal in the shortest possible time.

15 years of experience with hypoxic systems facilitates the pre-acclimatization and increases performance and chances of success at the summit significantly With the support of experts, you can acclimatize at home. Quite simply, with the world’s only sleeping tent that simulates oxygen levels at 7000m. Perfect to prepare for high altitudes!
