Mount Amadablam Expedition

home Home Nepal Nepal Expeditions Mount Amadablam Expedition





Pyramid-shaped Mount Amadablam (6812 m.), located to the south of Everest and Lhotse, characterized by vertical walls and sharp exposed ridges are renowned for its incredible beauty. The peak stands above Thayangboche monastery on the way to Everest Base Camp. Mount Ama Dablam leaves a lasting impression on many as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. However, the Mt. Amadablam Expedition demands good skills on rock climbing, ice climbing, sufficient experience of high altitude and technically competent.

The trekking route starts from Lukla (2840 m) and passes through the legendary Sherpa village of Khumbu region. It is required to set-up at least four camps from the Base Camp to accomplish the Mt. Amadablam Expedition. We follow the standard South West ridge route to the top, as it is considered the safe route which is free from the objective danger such as avalanches, glaciers and icefalls. Amadablam is not a new name for the climbers. It offers a superb climbing experience to the newcomers with numerous cultural and scenic diversions close up view of Mt Lhotse, Makalu, Cho- Oyu and Mt. Everest.

Dablam has 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 diversions close up view of Mt Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Everest.

If you have previous climbing experience and wish to participate fully as a team member of an expertly led expedition to one of the world's most impressive mountain then climbing expedition to Ama Dablam is the best suited. This Mountain is a technically demanding mountain for climbing in Nepal. It is considered an ornament of the Himalayas in Nepal. Although the height is only 6812 m Ama Dablam expedition requires steep ice, rock and snow climbing. Normally, three camps are set in Ama Dablam climbing above the base camp (4,570 m), however, only two camps are used to spend the nights. The normal route for climbing is South-West Ridge. The ascent from Base Camp to camp 1st is considered one the difficult days of the expedition.
