Ama Dablam Expedition
Pyramid shaped Mount Amadablam (6812m. around 28 Nights / 29 Days) one of the most magnificent peaks in the Himalaya and one of the most inspiring mountains in the world, located to the south of Everest and Lhotse is categorized by vertical dividers and sharp exposed crests with the exquisiteness in the class of Matterhorn. An expedition to Ama Dablam is technically challenging and has it all ice, rock, scrambling, killer views, great approach and the great base camp in a pasture with a tributary. The expedition offers a splendid, technical climbing experience in the heart of Khumbu region just above Thayanboche monastery, another nugget of beauty due to amalgamation of its setting and architecture, on the way to Everest Base Camp. Ama Dablam, The Matternhorn of Himalayas, leaves a eternal impression on many as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. However, the expedition demands good skills of rock climbing, ice climbing, sufficient experience of high altitude and technical competency.
From the pinnacle, five highest peaks in the world are clearly visible Mt Lhotse, Mt. Lhotse Shar, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho – Oyu, and Mt. Everest, and also close view of Nuptse, Baruntse and Pumari. Since its ascent in 1961 by an Anglo American / New Zealand team, it has been frequently climbed and by many different routes. As with Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May in spring season and September-October in autumn season.
