Ama Dablam is one of the most stunning peaks in the Himalaya and one of the most impressive mountains in the world.
Situated in the heart of Everest’s Khumbu region, Ama Dablam has long been considered the prettiest mountain in the world.
High on her Southwest face hangs a glacier resembling a “Dablam” ( the sacred ornament box worn by ladies in the Sherpa community) .
It was this spectacular feature that got her the name “Ama Dablam”.
She lies alongside Everest in the heart of the Khumbu valley offering a superb climb up a spectacular ridge.
Mount Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain, located almost due south of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse in the Khumbu region. It is a steep pyramid of ice with vertical walls and sharp, exposed ridges.
Mount Ama Dablam forms a lasting impression on many trekkers in Nepal, as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. Our ascent will be made via the SW ridge route, a technical route with three camps above base camp.
The climb usually completed in less than four weeks. The climbing on the route involves pure rock climbing on exquisite granite followed by mixed snow and rock climbing.
The last section to the summit involves ice climbing followed by a long steep snow slope up to the summit.
