Time is a valuable commodity. We are about to change the fundamentals of high-mountain expeditions. For you. Acclimatization for this expedition is already done at home. While a traditional Lhotse expedition takes around 55 days, our Flash™ Expedition saves time and additionally increases safety and chances of success. (3 weeks)
Furtenbach Adventures has more than 15 years experience in the use of hypoxia systems for pre-acclimatization in high-altitude mountaineering. Once in the Himalayas participants are acclimatized within a very short time and have a much higher efficency – Ready for the summit ascent! No other tour operator has as much experience and expertise with hypoxia systems for pre-acclimatization.
This innovative pre-acclimatization, combined with a small group, maximum oxygen support, best equipment and an experienced team makes the Flash™ Expedition so successful and allows an ascent within only 3 weeks. Furtenbach Adventures is the only tour operator achieving such a short expedition duration besides minimising risk. Through our state-of-the-art expedition preparation we change the world of high-altitude mountaineering.
Lhotse is the fourth hightest mountain in the world (8.516m) and as Everest’s neighbor just missing the top-3 podium. Nevertheless, the number four has an impressive height and is definitely not for the fain-hearted, but those who are looking for an outstanding adventure.
The Lhotse has three summits: Lhotse Main (8. 516m), Lhotse Shar (8. 383m) and Lhotse Middle or East (8. 413m). From Lhotse and its secondary peak Lhotse Shar over 3,000 m (!) high rock walls drop in southern direction. Due to the enormous difference in altitude and the extreme height, these walls range among the most difficult and dangerous in the world.
But that shouldn’t discourage us at all, because on the one hand we don’t have to climb them and on the other hand this might be our only chance to see one of the steepest walls in the world from above!
