Amadablam Expedition

Trip Facts

Duration : 32 days

Difficulty Level : 5

Group Size : 2-10

Maximum Altitude : 6810 m

Ama Dablam is located in the Khumbu Valley. Sometimes considered the Matterhorn of Nepal, Ama Dablam is a magnificent pyramid. The hanging glacier seen on the southwest face of Ama Dablam bears a resemblance to the sacred ornament box used by Sherpa Women, which is known as Dablam, therefore giving it a name as “Ama Dablam” This peak is 6,812 meters in elevation from the sea level. This mountain is not impressive for its height but for its aesthetics it holds. Mt. Ama Dablam is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, south of Mt. Everest. One should see some splendid views during the ascent to the pinnacle.

The usual ascent to Ama Dablam is done from the South-western ridge. This was the same route followed by the climbers who reached the top for the first time to the top in 1961. Commonly, climbers set up three camps just below and the right of the hanging glacier, “Dablam”. The hike is modest up to camp 1, but the challenge starts from camp 1 to camp 2 as it gets more technical in the narrow edges of ridges made from granite. This challenge increases even more from camp 2 to camp 3. Some risk of glacier falls cannot be escaped. One should train himself on the skills of rock and ice climbing and get used to a high altitude before thinking of Amadablam Expedition. If you have former experience as a climber and wish to join in a team of an expedition to a world’s most extraordinary mountain, then Amadablam Expedition is for you.
