Luxury is becoming a trend in the Himalayan mountains and Lukas Furtenbach of Furtenbach Adventures, one of the leading mountain guide operators, created an expedition that offer climbers comfortability on the highest peak in the world. There’s a surge of interest in extreme adventure travel and glamping is the best possible way to do it.
With Furtenbach Adventures, each climber gets a two-room stand up tent with bedding, hot showers, Wi-Fi and electricity – which is especially important because many actually work while on the trip. There’s a large lounge tent at base camp for everyone to come together or relax on their own with amenities like yoga classes, a full bar, a huge espresso machine, gourmet meals, movie screenings, a library, and some years there are even hot saunas to relax after a long day of exploring.
Lukas even flies clients in and out of base camp by helicopter whenever possible, which is huge for those that aren’t up for the trek. In addition to all of these personal perks for climbers, Lukas is a leader in sustainability on Everest and has been implementing new measures such as 100% solar energy, to insure environmental and social responsibility while on the mountain.
Nobody does Mt. Everest like famed mountaineering guide, Lukas Furtenbach and the lucky climbers that tag along with him!
