Mt. Ama Dablam Expedition

Trip Overview

Ama Dablam (6170m) is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful peaks in the Everest region. It is part of the Mahalangur Himalayan range and is popular for climbing among both experienced and beginner climbers. 

Ama Dablam in Sherpa language means ‘Mother’s Necklace’. When seeing from a distance the mountain looks like a mother protecting her child. The view of Ama Dablam from Thyanboche Monastery is worth a million dollar! 

Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 by a team led by New Zealander Mike Gill. The normal route to climb Mount Ama Dablam is from its South- West ridge and usually requires setting up 3 camps before the final launch. 

Ama Dablam is often regarded as a ladder for beginners before they graduate to bigger mountains. Still climbing mountain presents the technical difficulty. The Mountaineers have to cross-difficult ice rocks and steep snow climbing one their climbing route. 

To reach the first camp from base camp, the climbers have to pass the toughest ridges and then turn to the north via rocky boulder. From Camp I the path crosses the rocky bowl and climb another the ridge with the help of fixed lines before reaching Camp II. The road ahead of Camp II is laden with severe rocks, ice, and snow. The final stretch from Camp III to the summit involves tackling Dablam or a huge hanging glacier. The top of Ama Dablam opens up to a magnificent panorama of Mt Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m) and Island peak (6189m) among others
