Overview

Ama Dablam is known as the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’ and stands tall and proud at 6812m. The amazing mountain, which is considered one of the world’s most beautiful peaks in Nepal, stands in the middle of Khumbu valley. The peak is unique in itself because of the sharply pointed shape and ascending the peak. Summiting this peak is a dream come true for many climbers. They strive to conquer it and stand on the summit with the views of Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8481m) and other peaks. The expedition to Amadablam peak is demanding and presents challenges as well as breath-taking views. All climbers need to have good climbing skills to be capable to join this expedition.

The month-long expedition starts from Kathmandu as we fly to Lukla. We gradually ascend uphill in Phakding. We enter the Sherpa capital, Namche Bazaar. We then reach the Khumbu Glacier and descend to Dingboche and move towards Chukung valley and Imja Tse base camp. We attempt the summit after a night at the Ama Dablam base camp located at the south-west ridge. Ama Dablam consists of 3 campsites before reaching the peak. We move further up to Camp 1 (5700m) along the trails and acclimatize and then return to base camp again. Camp 2 and Camp 3 are mostly icy and slippery. We gradually move up and adjust to the environment. The climb from Camp 3 to the summit is less technical, and after two weeks, we summit the peak and move back to the base camp. As we move back to our accommodation, we could see the amazing Chukung valley, the villages and the range of the Himalayas Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Makalu (8481m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m) and many other mountains. The journey comes to an end when we fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla.

We provide you with international equipment and guide you throughout the expedition to minimize any mishap. Once you connect with us, it is our responsibility to take care of you throughout the journey.
