Amadablam alternatively known as Amai Dablang is a small snowcapped and great challenged peak of 6812 meters (22349 feet), considered the most beautiful mountain in Everest region Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. Ama Dablam means "Mother’s necklace"; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (Ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the Dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. For several days, Ama Dablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest base camp.
Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions. The most popular route by far is the Southwest Ridge. Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam. Any ice that calves off the glacier typically goes left, away from the camp. However, a 2006 avalanche proved otherwise. A climbing permit and a liaison officer are required when attempting Ama Dablam. As with Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May-June (before the monsoon) and September-October-November.
The normal route to climb mount Ama Dablam is from its South- West ridge. Most of the mountaineering beginners start their climbing through this Mountain. This South - West ridge is the normal and most popular route to ascend the Mt. Ama Dablam. Our previous expedition to this peak made base camp at 4770 meters, camp 1 at 5800 meters, camp 2 at 6075 meters, camp 3 at 6400 meters and then summit with great success. The Trek to base camp is one of the most stunning, with acclimatization days.
There is an ’Independent Amadablam Expedition’ package with basic needs of your expedition including your permit, Liaison Officers service, and logistic support into the Amadablam base camp; as well as fully supported expedition we organizing for you too. The majority of the route is fixed with rope to allow safe passage and tents will be placed in the camps by the Sherpa climbing team. This allows you the greatest chance of success and makes sure the whole experience stays fun.
Trekking in the Khumbu you see some of the world’s most famed mountains. We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and then trek through Namche Bazaar, Tyangboche Monastery and Pangboche - before setting up base camp.
Ama Dablam was first climbed on 13th of March, 1961 by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Michael Gill, Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ) via the Southwest Ridge. Climbing Team was led by Sir Edmund Hillary. They were well-acclimated to altitude, having wintered over at 5800 meters near the base of the peak as part of the Silver Hut Scientific Expedition.
