Ama Dablam Expedition Brief Insight

Ama Dablam Expedition is completed in 6,814 meters. The name of this mountain is derived from the Tibetan word Meaning “Mother with a Jewel Box”, a person can observe carefully from its southwestern face just near the neck of the peak a large chunk of ice lies hanging like a small jewel box.

Mt. Amadablam is one of the most magnificent mountains in the Himalayan range of Nepal. This Peak is located in the heart of the Everest region, around the Khumbu region of Solukhumbu district.

The peak is close to the main trail to Everest Base Camp and is admired and respected by thousands of trekkers and climbers every year. Amadablam Expedition offers a superb climbing experience in a magnificent setting, with numerous cultures and scenic diversions in the mountain world.

The impressive beauty of Ama Dablam has made it a highly coveted prize for climbers. Since its first successful climb in 1961 by the Anglo-American New Zealand team, it has been climbed frequently and many times by many different routes.

The peak climbing for Amadablam starts in the Namche Bazar after a scenic flight to Lukla Airport from Kathmandu. From Namche Bazar, we will be heading towards beautiful woodland lined with a forest covered by Rhododendron and pine trees to Thyangboche Monastery.

The awesome spot offers tantalizing scenery of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Tamasarkhu, Kwangde, Kangtenga and the magnificent Amadablam at a very close distance. After resting in Monastery and getting the blessing, our step moves forward to Pangboche. Then the route to Amadablam diverts from the main trail to Everest base camp.

From Pangboche we head towards the highlight of this adventure to Mt. Amadablam base camp at 4,580m high. The base camp offers a large valley with an awesome view of surrounding high peaks including Everest and as far as Mt. Pumori. From the base camp, our foot gets even more excited to complete our Ama Dablam peak climbing.

The climbing to the summit of the Amadablam peak is technically demanding and presents every supreme un-imaginable challenge and natural beauty. Ice, rock, scrambling, breathtaking views, great approaches, and a wonderfully situated base camp are just lit.
