Title: Oxygen
Post by: trunl on Oct 10 2003, 04:28
Ordering Oxygen should be directly from the manufacturer, I recommend Poisk. You can get the light bottles, but they will be more expensive. Expect to spend about $5000 on oxygen for one person (includes 2 spare bottles).

I agree on getting it from the source. Some expeditions have failed in one way or another by either buying 'refilled' bottles actually not containing the amount of oxygen that was supposed to be in them.
Don't fool around with your life on Everest!

the refilled bottles were from India, and the refillers care nothing about the health of the climbers
